Virginia’s View Challenge 16 – 100% Stamped

Hello everyone!

This is a very *special* post for me as I was asked by the amazing Virginia Lu to guest design at her challenge blog, Virginia’s View! Its not everyday that a cardmaking veteran as talented as her calls on you, so there was no way I was going to pass up the offer 😉

Virginia's View Challenge 16. 100% Stamped.

I’m sharing a card that I made as part of the 100% Stamped challenge that Virginia is hosting – you can even see some sneaks of my cards in the graphic she created above! Here’s my card:

I love creating one layer (or almost one layer ;-)) cards and this one is so easy to do, and yes, it is 100% stamped! I began by stamping with the back sides of the floral images from Altenew’s Hennah Elements, with a range of rainbow Distress Inks directly onto the card front.

I then flipped the stamps the right way round, and stamped over the previous impressions with black dye ink.

This technique is so much fun and can be done with any high quality photopolymer stamp sets – the results will be different depending on which ones you use!

The sentiment comes from WPlus9’s Written on ribbon and was stamped with Versamark Ink onto black cardstock before being heat embossed in white. I trimmed it down along with a piece of gold foiled cardstock and foam mounted to the card front.

To finish, I added a couple of sequins – I can see myself using this to create a whole range of (last minute!) cards 😉

I hope you’ll pop over to Virginia’s View Challenge and play along for the chance to win some fabulous prizes!

Thanks for stopping by 😉
