Blockheads and Faux Linen Technique-Part One of Three

Hi Everyone!
Well, here I am finally. I have been so busy getting some submissions ready. I am back today with some cards using Blockheads stamps. I have been making a bunch of cards using the Faux Linen technique. I made a total of four cards. I was going to put them all in one post but, it just is too much info for one post. Therefore, I will be showing you all the cards over the next few days.

If you would like a step by step tutorial, click over to the Blockheads blog where I am guesting and where I have posted the tutorial. Here is a sneaky peek at the card you will find over there with complete instructions.

Here are the Stamp sets I used for today's card:

So, here we go with the finished card. I used Galaxy Gold, Cosmic Copper, and Rhubarb Stalk inks for this card. (Click on the supplies to take you to the Blockheads Store.) I used Pink and Wine CS's and added two different ribbons. The Dress Dummy (Vintage Travel set) is stamped with black pigment ink and heat embossed directly on top of the Faux Linen background.

And, here are some detail photos. I love this Dress Dummy image.

I used the lace stamp from the Notions set and cut the card along the edge of the stamp. This really gives a neat edge.

And, this is repeated on the inside. There is plenty of room for a stamped sentiment or to write a little note.

Stop back by for Faux Linen Cards Part Two. We sure are having "not so nice" weather here. Rain and cold. Sure doesn't seem much like April, more like March.

Hope it is nice and sunny where ever you are. Have a great day. Love ya,
