ALBC Week 7-The Sparkle Continues!


I had a rough week and treated myself to a trip to Hobby Lobby after work Friday. I walked around for an hour looking. Did I need anything? No. But this stamp just called out to me on the clearance rack…

I had a leftover frame from my Nestabilities and saved it thinking I would make a card for the ALBC frame challenge. Glad I did because it was perfect on this card!

Stickles for sparkle, Club Scrap card stock of course.
+Julie Heyer posted a BEAUTIFULLY artsy card on Club Scrap Creates using a 3D stamping technique.

It is a little complicated for me,  I am a visual learner and needed a video, so I did a little searching and found this simple techinique for 3D stamping. Not as beautiful as Julie’s, but something I can handle.

My test… I used Club Scrap Sapphire ink for the shadow and Club Scrap white pigment ink for the main image (also a CS stamp). Thankfully I bought Stamp-a-ma-jig a few years ago in one of my Hobby Lobby tours. Turned out so cool!

The next card is so simple, but I like it. This stamp didn’t work for the shadow stamping technique (the stamp needs to be a bold image), but I stamped tone on tone for fun. I love this Club Scrap tulip stamp…

Stickles for bling again. Love that stuff. The “Diamond” is my favorite, but I can never find it when I’m shopping!
So, buying the Keep Calm stamp made me feel better. I made two cards, tried a new technique…it was a successful shopping trip. Hey, when mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!
