Welcome to Day 2 of the 2014 edition of the Hero Hostess Catalog Blog Hop! My 23 alumnae Hosti sisters and I are so excited to be able to get together again to show you some of the new stamps from this new 2014 Catalog! You should have arrived here today from my friend Judy Jung's blog, Livin' the Dream.
All of my cards today use the new cling stamp set called Forever. It is a fantastic set with such pretty elements!
For my first card, I used the flower and one of the sentiments, and paired them up with a piece of Earth Designer Paper and a strip of Tide Layering Paper. I stamped the sentiment in Latte chalk ink, and added some pink pearls
For my next card I wanted to use this sweet bird on a branch motif from the set. I inked it up in shabby shutters ink, then used a tumbled glass distress marker to color over the bird before stamping it onto white cardstock. I used the same marker to ink my sentiment also. I went back in after stamping and added some shadows with some colored pencils. My papers this time are Pool and Shallows layering papers.
And for my final card I inked up this pretty panel with Cornflower Blue mid-tone ink and stamped it onto my card base, adding the sentiment stamped in Navy mid-tone ink. I thought it needed just a little something, so I smooshed a bit of the cornflower ink on an acrylic block, spritzed it well with water, and then dipped a paint brush in and flicked it to make some splatters.
