Before I tell you about my cards, I want to let you know how our blog hop is going to run. You want to start at the 2RedBananas blog. From there you will go to our dt blogs in this order:
- 2RedBananas blog
In the post on each of the dt's blog there will be a question for you to answer, nothing hard, just some fun things to know. Be sure to answer the question in the comments for that dt member's blog. Then you hop to the next blog and do the same thing. You will get to see some really cool projects made with our first stamp set. You will end on Jami Bova's blog and see the blog candy that she will be giving away. It will be fun and very easy! And you may win some blog candy!!! :)
I'm so excited to have Jami Bova illustrating stamps for 2RedBananas. Her talent is AMAZING as you will see in the coming months with all her fabulous images! The first one we are featuring is "the Gift". If you follow Jami's blog, you know she said this set is her form of "doodling", this is fine art to me :) This set has 5 images and 2 sentiments that can be used for many occasions! It's awesome!
For this card, I started with an ivory cardstock base and added dp from Webster's Pages called Secret Garden. I stamped the images in Versafine Vintage Sepia and colored with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.
As you can see better in this picture, I added lilac shimmerz to the wrap. You can also see the shimmer of the Bazzill Bling in this picture. I used a border punch on the Bling and then put it all together. Oh, I used the lilac shimmerz in the heart of the sentiment too. That is pop dotted over the ribbon. I really love this stamp set!!!
I wanted to make this card a little different, so I made it a matchbook card. The front panel tucks into the bottom bordered flap. I kept this one really simple. I stamped the images on kraft and colored with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, this time making the wrap white and using Angel Wings Shimmerz. I matted the kraft on white and added ribbon and dew drops. I stapled the bottom flap up so the front panel just tucks into it.
I'm so excited about sharing these stamps with you. Be sure to go to the 2RedBananas blog so you can start at the beginning of the blog hop and play along with us.
We will be doing sneak peeks every day this week and the stamp sets will be released on Monday, February 2nd.
My question for you to answer is
What is your favorite embellishment?
I would have to say that mine is dew drops, I seem to put them on everything :) Be sure to leave you answer in the comments.
Then hop on over to Maraya's blog.
