Sharing Two Cards
by Marybeth Lopez


 Hi there! I hope you are enjoying this time of year! It has been extremely warm in this  southern part of  California!

I have a few cards to share today. The second card is using a very new stamp from Poppystamps ! For my first card I kept it simple and let the die do most of the talking.


I placed the die on my paper , added a few pencil marks so I knew where to blend my inks. I ended up going a bit outside the edge and happy to learn I could erase it with my eraser square. I used the Pinpoint Rectangle then placed my die and cut that out. On the back of the panel  I used fun foam, that I cut to fit with a few pieces.

I added a few Glossy Accents to the inside panel of the leaves . I stamped the sentiment using Grateful Heart. I also think this would make a wonderful sympathy card.

For my second card I used a masking technique I just learned about, I now love using it. You can use a stencil or mask your own center shape. I made a rectangle by taping off my panel then added the die-cut flowers from Peony Stems and Blossom new set. I added tape to the back of each cut piece, I made them less sticky ( so they would come off easier) by pressing them on my pants . Once in place I blended three colors of ink,  after I removed the die-cut piece I stamped the flower image onto the blank white space. ( you could color in the image, if you want) Carefully take off the outer tape and next you may add a sentiment. I used the same new stamp set for the sentiment.

We have lots of new stamps and dies coming up and we can't wait to share them with you!

God bless and I hope you have a beautiful and happy week!

I love both of the card designs, especially the one using the gentle leaf die that I now must purchase. it's so clean, crisp and artistic!
