Welcome to Rubeena’s Crafting Anniversary 2-Day Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Sharna Waksmulski’s blog!
This hop is epic with more than 60 guests and over $600 in sponsored prizes! Not only are we celebrating four years since Rubeena first discovered cardmaking, but also crafting in general. This industry is made up of wonderful individuals who are creative, inspirational, kind, and incredibly supportive! Hop along so you can learn about why we create and how much joy it brings us! For details on day one of the hop, you can visit this post.
I discovered crafting after my son was born. My first project was a hideous altered clipboard (that I thought was amaze balls at the time), lol! Crafting is my zen, and my savior because it gives me something to do!!
I’ve got three cards to share with you today showing you three different ways to the Concord and 9th’s Banner & Blooms stamp set and the Ribbon Banner die. All three cards have the same layout, have black heat embossed images and are watercolored using Gansai watercolors.
The first card is one layer. Everything is stamped, heat embossed and watercolored with no dimension added.
The second one has a bit of dimension from the ribbon die. I cut the die cut into two pieces and layered it onto the card panel. The “happy” panel is flat and the “everything” panel is popped up.
And lastly, the banner die cut and popped up as one piece (how it is intended to be used). I double stamped the top floral cluster off set just a tad to give it a shadow effect. Not sure I like it but I’m rolling with it! A little shimmer on the banner strip too using a glitter pen.
Next, hop on over to Miriam Prantner and see what she has in store for you!!!
