Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!!!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter “Z”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “Z” element will be featured in their post.

The letter “Z” is another one of those difficult letters.  Thankfully CTMH has these wonderful things called ZIPSTRIPS on the top of all of our pattern papers.  It just worked out beautifully as I needed to make gift card holders and the ZIPSTRIPS work as the band. Take a look….

Using Ink to stamp

I was playing around in my craft room.  I have seen on Pinterest some cool cards using a variety of techniques to apply ink.  I wanted to try some.  I have to apologize that I did not think about taking photos of the process, I guess I was just in a groove.

Sapphire Sympathy Card  ~ Ink technique ~ CatScrapbooking.comTo stamp the flower I used Blossoming Expressions D1665. I put a drop of Sapphire re-inker on the All Purpose Mat.  Then using the spray pen with water I spritzed it a couple times.  Then I inked the stamp in this water ink mixture.  Then using the second stamp with the detail, I inked it with the Sapphire stamp pad.  I used the Packages, Boxes and Tags D1664 stamp set to stamp the tag.  I used the stitching line to stamp around the white cardstock.  I then used the Ink Blot D1660 stamp set, inking it in the water ink mixture then stamped on cardstock.  Here is a close up of the stamping.

I decided to design my card after seeing this one on Pinterest.   I love designing my own designs in Design Space.  For this card I used hearts from Artbooking, Artistry and Art Philosophy.

La Vie En Rose ~ Beloved Bouquet ~ Hearts ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is the inside of the card ~

La Vie En Rose ~ Beloved Bouquet ~ Hearts ~ Valentine's ~ CatScrapbooking.comSo to make the card base I used the three different hearts then welded them to a rectangle so I created the heart edge.  Before I welded everything I made a copy of the grouped hearts so I could cut the individual hearts to add to the base.  I really love the way this turned out.
