Today is such a fun day. I have the pleasure of celebrating the exciting merge between Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey. The two companies come together today!
I'm so happy that you'll now be able to purchase products from both companies all in one place because Spellbinders has wonderful dies and I quickly fell in love with several of the FSJ stamp sets (I'm thinkin' of you Gnome for the Holidays!). FSJ carries stamps, dies, accessories, etc., and the rubber cling stamps stamp beautifully.
My cards today use the wonderful Adore Him stamp and die bundle. I love this bundle! It portrays exactly what my heart wants to share at Christmas. The message speaks volumes, so I wanted to use colors and designs that would not compete with that.
I started my first card by stamping the city skyline. To fill the width of the card, I stamped it twice. Next I stamped the sentiment below. I fussy cut around the top of the city outline and popped the entire panel up on a navy blue card base. Finally, I stamped, fussy cut, and adhered the star image from the Adore Him stamp set.
The card needed just a bit more, and when I was looking through Fun Stampers Journey's embellishments, the Gift Twine immediately caught my eye. It is a true white and I love the little bit of gold woven throughout. It adds a little something special in a simple way...just what I like. :) I also added a little wood veneer to the star image for some added dimension.
My second card features a few more images and another sentiment from the Adore Him stamp set as well as the coordinating dies. I did a little ink blending on the side of the card base, splattered the background with a little bit of black paint, and popped up the stamped images.
I finished my card by again adding a few wood stars. I sighed the happiest sigh when I put the two cards next to each other. I can already tell that these stamps are going to get a lot of use.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope that you enjoyed your visit!
BEAUTIFUL colors, BEAUTIFUL CAS designs, BEAUTIFUL cards!ReplyDelete
