Lace and Knitting Stamps Day 3

I'm back after a few busy days to add more of the sample cards I made using the Lace and Knitting designs that I designed for Joanna Sheen. I used the Take one Step sheet for these cards.

For this card I stamped the border and 2 hearts onto black paper and embossed with white powder. I also stamped 2 of the hearts onto cream paper and embossed with black powder.
I cut the main part out of the white embossed and layered them onto the cream hearts. To make up the card I used black strips of card folded around each corner layering the borders on top. The hearts are on foam tape... I made 3 roses and added them onto the die cut swirls. The verse is also on the stamp sheet. I finished with the faux stitching done with a gel pen. The paper was given a vintage look using Antique linen distress ink.

Here's my second card...

For this card I stamped the square lace stamp 3 times embossing it with brown tapastery powder, then coloured the lace panel with a multicolour of distress inks to create a tapastery feel. The background paper is from one of Joanna sheens CDs (I can't remember which one sorry).. I stamped the lace border along the top with brown in and onto each end of the die cut verse topper. I made the rose and die cut the leaves and brances.

...and here is the third card I made using the Take one Step sheet.
and inside...
I made my own template for the windows, cut them out and added frames inside and outside the card with acetate and tulle inbetween. I stamped the brickwork from Country house onto the front around the windows. For the inside of the card I created a Wedding Cake using the stamps. I cut the two tiers out of card inking them lightly with blue.. I stamped the borders onto cream paper embossing with white and then lightly inking each one with blue to make the white show up.. then I stuck them onto the tiers. The boards are mirror paper scored using an embossing board. The little flower border was stamped in blue and I used a versamark pen in the center of each flower and embossed with holographic powder. The bow is also stamped with versamark and embossed with holographic powder and inked to define the bow. The little vase on top is cut out of a stamped and embossed lace tile that is on the sheet and again inked with blue. I used die cut letters and added a feather as a finishing touch.

Next time I will be back with the Knitting stamp sample cards
