Cards by Carol Celeste

My Mind’s Eye – The Sweetest Thing (Bluebell) stamp set and 6x6 paper pad


·       Bazzill Card Shoppe Cardstock
·       My Mind’s Eye Bluebell stamp set, 6x6 paper, and enamel dots
·       Faber Castell Mix and Match Media Sets in yellow and green
·       Versamark and white embossing powder

I stamped the small tri-flower image, and then masked it off to stamp the larger flower.  All were colored with the Faber Castell Art GRIP Aquarelle Water Color Pencils and PITT Pastel Pencil.  Then blended with water.

I used the metallic green Gelato from the Faber Castell set to edge the papers.  Then softened it with my fingers.  This really gives the paper a very nice shine. 

I selectively inked the doily from the stamp set with Versamark, heat embossed it with white, then cut it out.  I embossed the flower set to create the flower embellishment at the end of the banner.    I used the sentiment image from inside the frame of this set – stamped with Versamark, and embossed with black.  The banner was “popped” with pop dots. 

CAS (clean and simple) card

·      Bazzill Card Shoppe Cardstock
·      My Mind’s Eye Bluebell stamp set, and 6x6 paper
·      Faber Castell Mix and Match Media Set in yellow
·      Sentiment set from Inky Antics
·      Viva Pearl Pen in yellow
·      Scoring Tool

I scored lines from the top at ¾ inch and 1 ¼ inch – then from the bottom at 1 ¼ inch and 1 ¾ inch.  I cut and adhered 2 strips of paper just slightly less than ½ inch to fit between the scored lines, and the bottom piece was cut just less than 1 ¼ inch. 

I inked the frame from My Mind’s Eye stamp set with the Metallic yellow PITT Artist Pen and stamped that.  The flowers from the same set were inked with Archival Blank ink.  I used the sentiment from Inky Antics, which fit perfectly inside the frame – don’t you just love when things go together well!! 

I used the Pearl pen to add dots to the center of the flowers.  This is a very cool pen because you can size the dots to whatever you want!  They come in a variety of colors! 

Great job Carol! Really love that scoring technique!!!
