Hello and welcome! Not a usual day for me to post a card, but I spent some time yesterday using some new stamps I got for a cause and thought I'd share the cards today. I do like to keep my blog a happy place but there is no denying that the happenings in Eastern Europe are constantly on my mind so when I received the newsletter from Power Poppy (you can also read it on Power Poppy's blog) about the free Sunflower digi stamps and an option to purchase another digi for a fundraiser to help Ukraine I had to get them.
Both were done in a CAS-ish style.
On the first card (above) I used the Sunshine of my Life set. As I usually do with digi stamps, it's been colored with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. After coloring, I used one of my favorite stamps, the retired Whimsy Stamps script border on the bottom of the card. The background was a little bit too plain so I decided to add some stenciling. Finally ran this through my big shot machine using Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches die then adhered to the card base.
And here is my second card:
This has also been colored with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, I used the same border stamp again and this time I simply tore the bottom edge of the image panel then added some paper piercing. Some silver cord I recently found a roll off at a thrift store was tied around the image panel, edges inked with light blue ink, did some old fashioned paper piercing using my old Stampin Up piercing template and then adhered onto a white card base.
Thanks so much for visiting!
