Karen here. I’m doing my first post with the brand new stamps that are available in many local and online craft stores! I love coloring and am loving these new stamps.
This first card uses the sweet lady from the English Countryside 2 set. To create the card, I used the Stitched and Fitted Rectangles to create the frame that holds half a doily. I placed it on the card background that was cut with the Stitched Indented Rectangle die wrapped in lace and pink twine.
I stamped and die cut the image (using the coordinating dies). I colored it with Copic markers. On the image above, I wrote down the colors that I used.
And HOW FUN is this old timey telephone from the Hello Darling set. I only used a bit of C1 and C3 Copic markers to highlight the shaded areas and some E41 to color in the buttons. I love the effect of the mostly white on that pretty background paper that I die cut with the Stitched Rounded Rectangles where I also adhered the other half of the doily.
On the inside, I used 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock for the inside that I added a small strip of the pattern paper from the front. I also stamped and die cut Hello Darling (also from the Hello Darling set). I added some R81, R83 and YG13 coloring to the roses.
That’s it for me today. Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen
The cards are beautiful. The black and white phone really stands out. And the coloring on both is so gorgeous. I love the whole composition of both cards. So fitting for the era. Thanks for sharing. Fabulous job.
Both cards are darling. I really like the old fashioned image in the first and your marvelous coloring of her. I like how you added the frame in back of the phone to add to the overall effect of the black and white phone. Well done and congratulations on your first post.
