It has been a busy week, but I am back today with some more card making fun! All of the designers on the Blockheads Team are going mad for border stamps this week. Each of us has come up with some really interesting and different ways to use Border Stamps from Lost Coast Designs available at Blockheads Paper Arts. I used one of the borders to create a striped background. Any one of the border stamps could be used in this way. I added some of the Alice in Wonderland images to my cards. So here we go with the first card! I call this one "Alice Ponders".
Card Stock: Pink, Cherry, Medium Pink, Black, and White
I stamped the border stamp in a group of three coordinating ink colors. I used a Pink/Red combo for my projects. But, I also tried the Distress ink green and brown color groups and that looked great too. I plan on using that in future projects. I stamped from dark to light. After stamping (and it took several tries to get the rows straight-LOL) I trimmed the CS to fit my dark cherry colored card base.
Alice was stamped on Pink CS with Black Memories dye ink. Die cut Alice and a piece of dark cherry CS with Spellbinders Oval dies. I added three paper flowers and a white satin ribbon. I also decorated the inside. I used my scraps here.
This card could be used for a birthday, TOY, hello, or anything else your heart desires. And, now onto card number 2.
I used the same ink colors on this card, but changed the order. I went light-med-dark-med-light. The Queen is stamped with Fired Brick and layered with Black CS. I added a pink polka dot ribbon that extends off the edge of the card.
Now head over and check out all the other design team members projects. You will wonder how you ever lived without Border Stamps in your life. LOL!!
