Happy Anniversary (using two Step stamping)

Here is a quick Anniversary card that I put together using the Summer Rose (SS-0345) stamp set.  Such a beautiful stamp set.  This stamp set uses the two step stamping technique.  I love the way this technique looks using the Summer Rose stamp set.

Black Licorice (CS-0003) cardstock was used for the card base and the top panel is Butter Cream (CS-0006).  I cut another piece of Butter Cream for the inside as well.

The rose was stamped using Bubble Gum (IP-0058) and then the detail of the rose was stamped using Candy Apple (IP-0017) ink.  I love how realistic the rose looks using those colors.  The leaves were done the same way but using stamped with Limeade Splash (IP-0019) and Fresh Forest (IP- 0013).  The sentiment was stamped with Black Licorice (IP-) ink.  The sentiment comes from the Bird Melody (SS-0496) stamp set (that also comes in a bundle with matching dies).  I love the font on the sentiments from this set.  So elegant.

I finished off the card by adding some Bubble Gum (IP-0092) and Sparkle (IP-0126) Silk.  Wrapped the card with Candy Apple Twine (AC-0266) and added some Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115).

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy Two-Stepping!!

I love learning new ideas and techniques. And Fun Stampers Journey is awesome at continuing to educate their coaches!!

I really love how this card turned out.  At first I was not sure but as I stared to put it together I was very pleased with the outcome.

I first stamped a piece of Hazelnut Blend cardstock using the Summer Rose stamp set in River Stone ink.  This is a great way to make a quick background on plain cardstock.

The Summer Rose stamp is a triple stamping set.  The base of the rose was stamped in Buttercream and the 2 detail rose stamps were stamped in River Stone.  Since the base stamp is solid, it will take a bit for the Buttercream ink to dry or you can speed it up by using a heat tool.

After that I used our Journey Squares Die set to get the piercing effect.  Then added some Silver Silk, Natural Twine and some Bloom Time sequins and put it all together.

The sentiment came the Sandy Toes stamp set that is in our new Spring into Summer Trends Mini Catalog.

I think the saying can be used for a lot of different occasions (Graduation, Sympathy).  Change up the greeting and this would make a lovely Mother’s Day card.

Did you know that Fun Stampers Journey also carries jewelry.  Check out these great necklaces.
