Sending Hugs - background basics: medalllions

Practice makes perfect - and I NEED a lot more practice on backgrounds!! An additional benefit of using the MISTI is that I can use the very light ink colors and stamp then more than once to get great colors.

Do you need a hug today??? I hope you have someone close to give you one or accept this virtual one. I appreciate each of you that take the time to stop by. ~Rhonda

Trust in the Lord

I had never had a lot of luck using the Rustic Wreath stamp set and die. I just could not get it to line up. I decided to give my MISTI a workout and see if it was up to the challenge.

I stamped the wreath on the card front first so the berries were in place. I then starting stamping the die cut. I really like the blue card that has the berries in spring rain and the rest of the wreath in the neutrals.

For the "blue" cards I stamped the wreath with Spring Rain first. I then did 2 different color schemes. Spring Rain, followed by Blueberry Sky and then Enchanted Evening randomly inked. The second one was Spring Rain first and then Fine Linen and Kraft. I had a blast using lots of ink colors.

The "green" cards were stamped with Spring Moss. I then followed that up with Ripe Avocado. I used the herringbone impression plate after I stamped the initial wreath on the white card stock. ~Rhonda

Wednesday Wishes #10

I'm excited with how these cards turned out! More than one color on the stamp adds so much more dimension. I really love the spring moss and ripe avocado inks together.

I think you can see what a difference the impression plate makes as well. I also used the new linen cardstock from PTI. That is a little harder to see.
I love that I'm making several cards at a time.It has taken a little practice to get the work flow figured out.

I hope you are adjusting to daylight savings time. I'm just ready to see some sunshine. ~Rhonda

MIM #203 Doodling with stamps & Wednesday Wishes #9

Love the happy colors on this card. I also stepped out of my creative box by adding my own squiggles and such. I was inspired by Ashley Newell's card here. Her technique is the challenge for this week's MIM #204 Doodling with Stamps. I totally get what Ashley said about it be scary cuz she might have to start over. This was one card that I didn't want to do again. It was tough lining up all these petals!

Hope you are having a super week. ~Rhonda
