Black Magic

February 13, 2018

This is an old technique which someone shared on a demonstrator facebook page I belong to.  So, of course, I had to give it a try with some of my current stamps.  For this card I created a background using the Timeless Textures stampset.  I stamped three of the images from the stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Crumb Cake ink.  Once I had finished stamping, I sponged around the edges using the same ink.  I attached the Very Vanilla card to scored and folded Cherry Cobbler card.   I stamped the image from the Touches of Texture stamp set onto Basic Black card using Versamark ink.  I covered the image with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  Then I used my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to colour the image.  I cut the image out using one of the Layering Ovals Framelits dies and attached it to a Cherry Cobbler scalloped oval cut using the same dies.  I attached the image panel to the centre of the stamped Very Vanilla card.

To decorate the inside, I once more stamped a small piece of Very Vanilla card using the images from the Timeless Textures stamp set and Crumb Cake ink.  I attached a narrow strip of Cherry Cobbler card behind one long edge before attaching to the Very Vanilla card.

I love this card, it is simple but also very detailed.  I didn’t add a greeting because I think it would fit many occasions, anniversary, birthday or even as a sympathy card.  I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,
