Coming back from a long hiatus , I m back with writing this post . I was lucky to get selected to be a guest designer for The Alley way stamps for the month of May. I will be sharing projects made with some of the new stamps.
I was lucky to get to play with the beautiful stamp set called phraseology. How many of us try to find the right sentiment or words to fill in a handmade card? This stamp set is quite versatile as it can be used for variety of cards. Its like a word puzzle which you can choose and make your own sentiment.
You can find the stamp here : http://www.thealleywaystamps.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=phraseology
For the first card :
The phraseology was stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder in a small rectangular black cardstock and foam mounted onto a red cardstock with stars stencil embossing paste background. Brads were fixed to give a mounted feel. White gel pen was used to circle the selected words. This makes for a birthday card.
For my second card, I used the stamp set along with a journaling die cut . I made small journaling cards and blended distress inks squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, spiced marmalade barn door and pickled raspberry for top panel. For the base journal card, I blended distress inks tumbled glass, broken china, faded jeans and peacock feathers. I splattered some water and misted these cards to give a water color effect. Rounded off the words with a micron pen and foam mounted them onto black cardbase.
For the third card , I kept the design really simple since the phrases speak for themselves. Card base was embossed with cuttlebug tiny hearts embossing folder, Black and white cardstock were cut and shaped and a red twine was attached with a bow. The stamp set was stamped with versafine black ink and the sentiments were rounded with a red gel pen to give a romantic color feel to the card. Stickles added to selected hearts on embossed paper. This makes it a romantic masculine card.
What I really love about the phraseology set is that you can make birthday cards, romantic cards, baby cards , get well soon card,thanks and various sentiments in just one set.
