Hey friends and welcome to the Sweet Stamp Challenge Blog.
Penny Ward here for the last time as a Guest Designer. I have had so much fun playing with the super cute stamps and spending time on this blog.
So let's get to it.
Let's Make a Card and then change it ...
I started with white card stock and stamped the Floral Corner Wrap, turned the stamp 90 degrees and stamped it again. As you can see, I started with light Blue ink, then added two other Blues to the stamp before I actually stamped the card stock. Gives the vines a nice variegated look.
Now the fun part...color the flowers.
I used the same inking technique on the sentiment Thank You Curly, then cut it into a banner shape.
Flowers and foliage were cut with Silhouette Cameo and inked.
There is hardly a card that I make that doesn't have Liquid Pearls on it, and this is no exception....absolutely LOVE my Liquid Pearls!
While writing this post I am thinking "how cute would this be to cut out the center of the card and actually make it into a picture frame"...now why didn't I think of this sooner?
So...let's change it into a Frame ...
Took the embellishments off (carefully) and used Deckled Rectangles Large to cut the center from the card.
Used an Aqua card stock as a mat for the frame, die cut the center with Deckled Rectangles Small. When adhering it together I left the top unglued leaving an opening for the picture (my handsome son and my adorable grandsons...just sayin').
To make the frame a little more sturdy, I adhered two panels of heavy watercolor paper and made an easel.
Re-attach the embellishments.
This frame is still sized at 5.5 x 4.25 inches...so you could still pop it in the mail.
I have had a total blast Guest Designing here at Sweet Stamps and I hope in the future you will bookmark my blog Penny Ward Ink and come visit me often.
Many many hugs,
