Finish My Card Collaboration – Part 1
My friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Amy Koenders, helped me to create a fun collaborative project for you today. Each one of us created an art piece and sentiment for a card. I chose to use the new In This Together stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for my piece. Once our focal points were finished, we traded and finished each other’s card. For my post today, I will be showing you my art piece, but you will have to link over to Amy’s blog, Stamp with Amy K, to see the finished product. Part 2 of this collaboration will be coming soon, so you can see what I created using Amy’ art piece as my focal point.
I love the scenes of girlfriends from the In This Together stamp set from Stampin’ Up! However, I’m not a fan of the sentiments. For my project today I chose the darling image of the girl with a cocktail and I masked over the sentiment with a post-it note when I inked it up. I used memento ink because I wanted to color my image with Stampin’ Blendabilities alcohol markers (available soon).
I decided to create my own sentiment using the Endless Birthday Wishes photopolymer stamp set. I love this set. It is so versatile; and because the photopolymer stamps are completely clear, it makes it easy to combine the images to create your own custom sentiments. As a finishing touch, I added some rhinestones around the sentiment, which I colored with my Blendabilities markers. Finally, I inked around the edges of my Whisper White panel with Baked Brown Sugar ink and a stamping sponge.
Note: I just learned that the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set has sold out and is temporarily unavailable. If you missed out on this wonderful set, don’t worry, it will be back soon. In the meantime, there are lots of other stamp sets that would make nice substitutions. The Sumthin’ Sumthin’ stamp set or Remembering Your Birthday set are a couple of options you might consider. I particularly like the “Let’s Celebrate” sentiment from the Sumthin’ Sumthin’ stamp set, which is brand new with the 2014 Annual Catalog that went live just this week!
