I'm back again with the second set of stamps that are to be launched on Create and Craft on 1 November 2016 at 2.00pm by Toni Darroch from Stamps by Me Ltd. This set is called Foliage and I think they are so versatile, they will be great to use with any of your existing floral stamps or dies.
This is the first card I did using this set.
I stamped the sentiment in the centre and various leaf outline stamps around the edge of a piece of craft card using Ranger Embossing Ink and embossed with White Seafoam embossing powder. I then coloured the leaves in using watered down Adirondack Ink in: Stream, Wild Plum, and Egg Plant. The ink bled under the embossing powder a little bit but I think it adds to the look.
The lines were created using double sided tape and glitters in coordinating colours.
This is the second card I made with the Foliage stamp set. I spent a bit more time on this one and had really good fun playing.
I started by stamping the solid leaf stamps in Adirondack Lettuce ink using first and second generation ink to create a border around a white piece of card stock I then stamped over this with one of the outline stamps using Adirondack ink pad in Stream. The sentiment was stamped using Ranger Embossing Ink and embossed with Black Sparkle embossing powder.
The next stage was the best fun. I got out my Ranger Alcohol Inks that I haven't used for ages. I took a piece of 6" x 4" glossy photo paper and started to cover it with various colours of the alcohol ink. I used three or four drops of each colour on a felt pad and added blending solution to make the colours bleed. The colours I used were: Sail Boat Blue, Oregano, Latte, Sunshine Yellow. The outline leaves were stamped over the background using Archival Black Ink. I then cut these out and added them to the card on 3D foam pads. I matted using white and black card and added some dew drops to finish.
Hope you like the finished cards.
Thanks for popping in
Lots of Love
