2 cards with SSS

Monday, December 18, 2017

Hi friends. I have 2 fun cards to share with you today primarily using some SSS stamps and dies.  For my first card, I started by stamping my background with the gorgeous Kaleidoscope background stamp. I used Copic friendly ink for this because after my panel was completely dry, I went in with various Copic markers in rainbow order and just scribbled on some color. 

Once my panel was done, I ran it through my Big Shot with a die from MFT.  I then ran the die 3 more times with black card stock. I inlaid the first die and then stacked the others, finishing with my original die cut from the stamped and inked panel.  As a finishing touch, I added some Morning Dew Crystal Drops from Tonic Studios.

For my second card today, I used the same background as above. This time, I just added in some marker to some of the areas. I love that I used the same background but was able to get such different results due to the techniques used.

I then die cut the you die cut 4 times, once out of red card stock and then three times out of white. I stacked them together for added dimension, offsetting the white ones just slightly to add for a shadow effect.  I heat embossed the sentiment and the card is complete.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you are having a wonderful day and week.  Crafty hugs!

Alanna, these are so pretty! I really like the colors and how you showed off the diecuts. Very striking. It is so neat to see the same background look so different. Great job on these cards!

These background stamps are so versatile, you really can make very different cards from the same set. Love the look of the Copics on the first - so bright and bold! Xx
