Now if you happened to stumble here with my blog then make sure you check out below where the hop starts so you don't miss a thing (or your chance to win the goodies). I am sharing several projects with you today, as I was having so much fun mixing products from these two awesome companies…
To create this set of cards I used the Kaleidacolor ink pads in Baby Powder and Pastel, as well as the Calm and Loving Stamp Set and Lovely Links die set from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. The two white cards were made essentially the same way, just one uses the bolder Pastel colors. I then used the hearts that came out from the border dies and used them as embellishments on the cards. For the kraft card I used White pigment ink first and let that dry before going over the hearts with the Baby Powder Kaleidacolor Ink pad. When working with kraft and colored ink layering your card with white ink first will help the colors pop, rather than blend into the card stock.
This next card was created while I was just playing around with the ink pads…
To create this card I had used the Kaleidacolor Pastel Ink pad and swiped it across a clear stamping block I had. I then gave it a little spritz of water and stamped the block onto a white panel. I liked the fun design in created and decided to just go with it! I then stamped and die cut the flower from the Mon Ami Stamp Set and matching die set with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black. I was torn between coloring the flower in with matching colors, but in the end I decided I like the pop of the black and white against all of those bright colors ( I did add some Wink of Stella for a little sparkle though!). I then stamped my sentiment with Versafine Ink in Onyx Black. I trimmed the panel slightly smaller than the card front and added a strip of black and white stripped paper under it.
