Someone Special From CTMH

February 22, 2015

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome.

Gosh these weeks fly past and it is time for yet another blog post.  This week I will focus on another stamp set, Someone  Special, that is available only until the end of March through the Seasonals Expressions catalogue for just NZ$25.  This is such a pretty stamp set and I can see myself using this set a lot for cards and layouts.  I love the fact that CTMH use clear acrylic stamps so it is really easy to stamp over base images to create a lovely 2 dimensional look.

For these cards I have kept to the lovely Canary and Flaxen combination.  For the first card I have embossed White Daisy cardstock with the Quatrefoil embossing folder which I had inked first with Canary and Flaxen ink.  I have got this technique from a fellow CTMH consultant, Karen Pedersen here and there are more ideas about using the CTMH embossing folders on this post.  I did not sand the cardstock at all and the ink stamped the background of the embossing with the white embossed edge standing out more.  I was thrilled with the outcome and I hope you like it too.  The embossed cardstock has been matted on Flaxen cardstock and another strip of Flaxen cardstock has been placed over the bottom third of the card.  I have topped with this with the coordinating Flaxen Paper Fundamental paper .

The flower and bud has had the base stamped with Canary ink and then overstamped with Flaxen ink.  The leaves base has been stamped with Flaxen ink  and overstamped with Olive ink.  These colours go so well together and I found it to be a very restful combination on the eye. These were very easy to fussy cut and I have used the thin foam tape to add a little dimension.

The sentiment has come from the Artfully Sent Just to Say stamp set and I have stamped it in Flaxen ink.

For my second card I have used another piece of the lovely pearlised cardstock that I did several weeks ago.  I have embossed the Flaxen cardstock with the Stripe embossing folder and then edged the card with the chevron border punch similar to another card I featured earlier.  This time you can see the lovely background of the painted card.  The sentiment has been cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and stamped using Frame Flair stamp set, and the sentiment came from the Someone Special stamp set.
