STAMPED BACKGROUND

On to the card, I made and I chose to use the fun Crafty Friend stamp set. I did, however, take inspiration from one of the layouts and colours of the Echo Park patterned paper. The paper I referenced used a grid style repeating design of the craft supplies and so I picked out 8 of the icons from the Crafty Friend set and with the aid of my Misti stamped them in Spring Rain, Sunshine, Smoke, Watermelon, Green Leaf and Pink Diamond inks.

I added a few sentiments dotted throughout the design and stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink. I highlighted one of the sentiments by stamping it in clear embossing ink on Black card and white heat embossing before trimming out and foam mounting over the stamped panel. I then added the finished panel to a Slate card base.

I really liked the large “Handcrafted Hello” sentiment in the Crafty Friend set and so combined that stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink with the trio of pencil, pen and brush stamped in Pink Diamond, Sunshine and Spring Rain. Again I mounted this ultra simple card on a Slate card base.

I think a matching envelope really finishes off simple cards such as these. I dug through my envelope stash and used ones in Audrey Blue and Cotton Candy to tone with the ink colours.
