Always Remember – You Are Precious

Hello there. I have a couple of cards to share to day – one of which has the above encouraging sentiment, and one for a birthday:

On the first card:

I chose the stamp and use all the layers from Altenew ‘Remember This‘ stamp set. Once the flower was stamped, I masked it off and stamped the stem and a couple of the buds from the same stamp set. The sentiment is from a couple of stamp sets – ‘you are precious‘ is from the Altenew set, and ‘always remember’ is from the Stampin Up stamp set. A one layer card including some masking – very CAS.

The second card:

This took a little planning and a lot of masking. The flowers were stamped first – the outline, then I only used the middle of the three layers – quite effective I feel.

Each flower was masked – using the same mask just moving it around – and I stamped some of the leaves from the same stamp set around and about to fill some gaps, and only using the lightest shade of ink from the set of four – again from Altenew:

I tried a couple of different ways for the sentiment using the same stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn. the first one I tried was by stamping the words in black on white card-stock, but I felt the words didn’t stand out enough – it wasn’t bold enough – so I just die cut the two words out of black card and layered three together.

I like the boldness of the sentiment against the very feminine background.

Both cards will be entered together in the Twofer Card Challenge.

  3. Before I forget, I have to tell you that I love the way you used the two sets to make your very uplifting “precious” sediment, Lynda. You are going to make someone feel very special with this CASlicious, but meaningful design! And your all-over background of blossoms is beautiful! Excellent composing and masking and I like the die-cut sediment you ended up with! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #34! Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell
