One stamp set … two cards

Ok my challenge to any of you who care to take it on is to create 2 cards from the one stamp set! Today I have created two cards from the set Upsy Daisy.

 To create the first card I’ve stamped the main image in Blush Blossom ink and then stamped the image again slightly off centre to create a shadow effect in Pretty in Pink. I’ve decided that acetate is hard to photograph! I made this card for my cousin’s daughter who’s turning 13 this month.

This second card was created using the brick wall technique. Quite simple but a bit fiddly. I think my brick wall was built several hundred years ago as it’s not entirely straight …  I figure it adds character! lol To create this effect – either use printed paper for a back ground or in my case stamp some whisper white cardstock with a background image. I’ve used En Français which I’ve stamped in Sahara Sand. I’ve then stamped the daisy in black Stazon and allowed it to dry. I’ve then inked up the image again in Versamark, stamped slightly off the other image, and using black embossing powder I’ve heat embossed the image so you get a bit of a shadow. Allow the image to cool, then on the rear of the image using a ruler & pencil I’ve marked in lines 1/2″ high by 1″ wide alternating the marks by 1/2″ on alternate lines, so that when the image is cut out and put back together it creates bricks that are off-set. If you use printed paper you can stick this to some cardstock before creating your bricks. Also – to make it easy to reassemble your picture I numbered the bricks before cutting. Thanks for taking the time to drop by!
