Today, I made these cards using one of the Card Workshops in the book Wishes.  I have pictured the cards side by side so you can see how I changed up the same card layout.  Some I created the same as designed while others I rotated the sketch to a new orientation.  By using double sided B&T Duos Paper, I was able to change the cards even more by using the backside on some of the cards.  With this Card Workshop I was able to create 16 cards but with these alterations not one of them are the same!  I used the same stamp set for quickness and added whatever embellishments I had on hand.  Really wish I had some extra Gold Sequins.  They would have made embellishing a lot easier!  I like the simple ones with the embossed heart and no added embellishing the best. 🙂

I had fun using the Dizzy Circles stamp set with scraps from the Jackson Paper Packet to create this variety of cards.  Which one is your favorite?

CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Resisting Can Be Fun

Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Melissa Robinson.

There are a few steps to how I did the stamping for this card.  First with sponge daubers, I sponged different colors of ink on a scrap of White Daisy Cardstock.  Next I embossed the butterflies (using Versmark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder).

Resist Stamping Technique
Then, I sponged overtop of everything using Archival Black Ink and wiped off right away with a Kleenex.  Last, I trimmed the butterflies leaving a small border around the outside.  I am so pleased with how this technique turned out on this card and even better is that it will be flat to mail!

Butterfly Card (Resist Technique) by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Kaleidoscope Paper Packet, Inks (Pear, Cotton Candy, Gypsy, Honey), Archival Black Ink, Your Own Kind of Wonderful Stamp Set, Sponge, Sponge Daubers, Craft Heater, Micro-tip Scissors, Black Cardstock, Green Shimmer Trim, and White Cards & Envelopes.
