She believed

Hi there!

I just love it when a plan comes together. Or in cardmaking terms, when a design works ! 

I also love giving new life to old stamps by mixing the old and the new and trying to think outside the box 😊

she believed that she could so she did

she believed that she could so she did

she believed that she could so she did

I used :

  • Feather stamp set - Hero Arts (retired)
  • Sentiment - Hero Arts/Studio Calico borders set (retired)
  • Altenew inks
  • Versafine black ink
  • Altenew Dainty Swiss Dots background stamp
  • Misti
  • Craft foam for dimension 

I included a few shots of the process to get the sentiment curved and following the line of the feather.

  1. In the first photo I closed the lid of the misti, and used washi tape to mark the line on the outside where I wanted to place the sentiment.
  2. I then opened the lid and curved and placed the sentiment according to the marked line.
  3. Finally inked and stamped it .

Just make sure the dye ink is completely dry before you stamp the black ink over it. I was so exited to see the end result , I had to throw the first attempt away because the black ink bled into the pink 😆

I just had to stop by to see your cards up close and read about them... so glad I did! Genius method for perfect placement of the sentiment! I haven't talked myself into getting a MISTI yet. I know, I'm the world's last hold out. I love the pretty design of your CAS card!

Using washi tape on your Misti to help with placement of your stamp is brilliant! Thanks so much for sharing this tip. Your sentiment stamped perfectly.

This is such a terrific card in SOOOO many ways! Love the ombre feather, the curved sentiment (of course), and a powerful sentiment too!

Very nice card. It is great when everything works out the way we envisioned.

sidan said...

Perfect. The feather seems to say: take it easyer, as you feel. A well-defined card to time out.
