It’s been raining here today, I’ve been recovering from Laryngitis and not doing too much other than playing with my new goodies from Stampin’ Up!
This card is a result of what happens when you have a little too much time on your hands whilst reading the Twilight series extra slowly so you don’t finish it before the DVD is released!!
Those of you who are Twilight fans will relate to this card. If you are a Twilight fan and a paper-crafter you will know that there is a myriad of websites out there dedicated to both passions……..it’s amazing how many stampers there are who prefer their vampires sparkly- lol!
This card was inspired by the front cover of the first book of the series, hence the Tart and Tangy apple (what do you think Ange??)
Here’s what I’ve used to create this card…..
Stamps : Baroque Background, Friends 24-7, Occasional Greetings, Frames with a Flourish, Tart and Tangy and Defining Alphabet stampsets
Ink : Riding Hood Red (love,love,love this colour…….), Basic Black, Versa Mark
Paper : Ivory Naturals (nice and sturdy for the card base), Very Vanilla (this is ultra-smooth and great for stamping on), Basic Black
Accessories : Sponge Dauber, Paper Snips, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Clear Embossing Powder, Powder Pal trays, Heat Tool
To get the 2-toned, embossed apple just ink up the stamp in Versa Mark then go straight into Riding Hood Red ink, before rolling the edges of the image in Basic Black and then stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Apply Clear Embossing powder over the top and heat to melt. Cut out the apple with Paper Snips and apply to project with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Here’s a close-up :
