Welcome to the Essentials By Ellen November Release Mini Hop, Day 3!
My cards today showcase the amazing new Totally Random Sayings greeting stamp set! Sentiment stamp sets are a fantastic addition to every stampers collection since they can be used with image stamps you already have in your stash! I love being able to mix and match greetings with whatever images float my boat. I love the orientation of the "Happy Birthday" sentiment when paired with the smaller phrase across the speech bubbles on my card. In order for the other cards to have the same look I needed to do a little creative masking. If you're not a fan of cutting apart your clear stamps (I have done it but I usually try not to if at all possible! lol) then I can't wait to show you how easy it is to mask your greetings to get a whole different look!
To start, I inked backgrounds with three combinations of Distress Inks. I used a light hand and spritzed each with water from a Distress Sprayer for a little distressing.
Here are the color combination used for each background:
- Blue: Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon
- Purple: Shaded Lilac, Blueprint Sketch
- Reddish-Orange: Dried Marigold, Candied Apple
Speech bubbles for the top of each card were die cut from black cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Speech Bubble Border Die.
Greetings from the Totally Random Sayings were stamped on each speech bubble using Veresamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. To make sure the orientation of each card matched the horizontal design of the "Happy Birthday" card, I masked portions of each greeting with post it tape, stamping only part of each greeting, one at a time, to make the sentiment one line of text. It's a great alternative to cutting up clear stamps.
The images from the Baker Lady Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock with Jet Black Ink, colored in with Copic Markers, and die cut with the coordinating Baker Lady Dies. The images were adhered to each card base as shown, trimming excess images as necessary.
Each card was finished by adding detail to the dresses with a white pen and startdust glitter pen, detail to the eyes with a black glaze pen, and a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops for a fun, whimsical touch.
