Different Card, Different Day 1/11/18 January 11 2018, 0 Comments
Today's blog has a set of bacon and egg themed cards using my new stamps and cutting dies from Stamps Of Life by Stephanie Barnard. I loved the set that came with my monthly club kit so much that I ended up purchasing the add on sentiments stamp set. This way I can make many different cards, for many different occasions and all with bacon and eggs on them.
"We go together like bacon & eggs". There are many different ways to show that you can say the same thing.
Change the papers. When you don't have any that match the theme...stamp some up and design your own, like this orange background above. I randomly stamped eggs and bacon to fill the page.
To pop up the bacon or an egg, I stuck a foam adhesive strip or dot behind the image.
These next two have a plate designed into their look. I drew a border of squiggles around the plates rim. I also shaded the plates with distress inks.
I switched the plate from the left to the right to give it a different look. I also used strips of paper on one for the sentiments vs. stamping it directly onto the background paper.
And in case you are wondering how I started it all...I had to make all those little bacons and eggs. Here's a look at my workspace assembly line while watercoloring them all.
First I stamped them with my StazOn black ink, then proceeded to paint.
If you want to find out how any of these cards were made, using which supplies or how I possibly could design a card for you, please contact me. Leave me a comment too and let me know what you think about today's cards of my daily "Different Card, Different Day" blog series.
Thanks for reading my blog. Enjoy your day.
