Persian Motifs

I love the stamp set Persian Motifs from Altenew. Both cards are colored with pencils. I love the look of coloring on textured colored cardstock.

On my Yahoo group we take it in turns to issue a challenge. I finally got last week's challenge done before there is a new one tomorrow. I have had company so not so much time to spend stamping! The challenge was to make a spotlight card. I made two just because!

How I made the Believe card.

I was asked for a tutorial for the Believe card. It is pretty easy to make.

What you need:
A card base
Panel the same size as card front.
Stamp positioner or MISTI stamp tool
Shape die
Word die

Stamp your chosen image on your card base and again on a panel the same size as your card base. Use a stamp positioner or a MISTI stamp tool to make sure that both images are positioned in the same place. Color both images exactly the same. Use a shape die to cut an aperture in the panel over the stamped image.  Cut the panel 1/4" smaller than the card base. (1/8" on each side) Use dimensional tape to attach the panel so that the image on the aperture  and the image on the card base line up. Glue a word die cut across the aperture.

That's it!

Pink Poppies

I found a card on Pinterest that I liked very much and CASed it. The stamp is not the same but very similar. it is the other stamp in the set with the one I used for the blue poppies. As with the blue poppies these were colored with pencils.

Blue Poppies

I am back after a very long absence. I have switched from a PC to a MAC and I have a big learning curve with my photo editing program. The one I was using, and was very familiar with, does not have a MAC version. I am getting too old to be learning new things! LOL

The image is from Hero Arts I believe and colored with Prismacolor pencils.
