White berry collagePosted: September 28, 2013 Filed under: Background Stamps, Berry Branch, CAS, Lace Trims, Winter Berries | Tags: CAS, Penny Black stamps, Tsukineko Memento inks 23 Comments
I made this one layer card weeks ago so I am no longer sure of my order of stamping. This is what I might have done:
- position a post-it note mask
- emboss winter berries in white
- sponge grey ink from bottom left hand corner and teal ink from top right hand corner but keep a centre strip paler to create a highlight area
- stamp letter background stamp in grey and lace border stamp in teal (lace stamp is probably patchy because I may have wiped some of the ink off on purpose.)
- stamp the word ‘smile’ and the berry branch in teal
I vaguely remember dropping a stamp on the panel at some point which almost made me toss the card. Sorry I can’t be more precise; I guess it really makes sense to write about the cards as soon as I make them!
I just realized that I can add this to Karen’s One Layer Wednesday challenge this week. It is a free for all so go and check it out

Magee – It’s reading about the techniques that have such an impact upon me when I turn to create my own cards and images. Thank you for sharing and being a great inspiration. 🙂
This is beautiful.
Thanks very much, Heather, for sharing this. The card is absolutely beautiful – cool and sophisticated – yet you make it sound as if any of us could create it. Many thanks for sharing your stylish cards and your great tips.
So beautiful and calming. Love the highlighted white berry branch against the gray and teal.
LOVELY! I so enjoy how you use that type of foliage stamps!
So pretty. Glad I’m not the only one that goes to write about a card and has trouble reconstructing the process. 😉 I need to work harder at leaving that less-inked highlight in a sponged panel — it adds so much to the overall effect.
BEAUTIFUL card, Heather. The shades of blue w/the white emb berries in the foreground look so pretty. 🙂
