Make It Monday, Crafting with Carrie
Hello Happy Scrappers.
Happy Monday! I am excited to share with you today, my first set of project life cards that I created with my new HoneyBeeScraps stamp set “No Place Like Home”
Journey Project Life Card
For this card I use what I call a wet stamping technique. I first mist my watercolor paper so some water is absorbed into the paper. While my paper is still wet I stamp the background images I love how the ink kind of bleeds into the paper. I also use a blending tool and blend some of my colors around my card. Once my background is completely dry I use my Black dye ink and stamp my sayings. To complete my card I layered onto patterned paper and added a cork arrow.
Today’s Adventure Project Life Card
I used the same wet stamping technique on this card. I also added some shadow stamping to this card, where I double stamped my chevrons without re-inking my stamp. This will be a journal card in my travel album. For this card I embellished with some cork stars. I don’t know about you, but I am in love with cork embellishments.
Road Trip Project Life Card
For my Last card – I created what will be my Title card for the Spring break trip that we just took to Northern California to tour some colleges that my daughter will be attending this fall. This US map stamp is so fun because you can add a drop pin, as I did to mark your route along the way. I also love the little icon stamps that come in this set, I added the car to my road trip card.
If you want to purchase this great travel stamp set you can find it in the HoneyBeeScraps Etsy Shop
