Some "Sweet" Cards for Your Tuesday

Authentique Paper and Sweet Stamp Shop are teaming up over the next week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Sweet Stamp Shop products!


After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

Shellye here with a couple of Sweet Stamp Shop
cards combining the Classique: Elegant and Anchored Collections!

First up, I have a rather masculine styled card:
I cut a portion of the Anchored Enhancement paper to use as the backdrop for my initial stamping.  From the "Anatomy of Love" Stamps,I used the cluster of rounded squares and stamped them haphazardly 
across the paper with a black Staz On ink.  

Next, I stamped the image onto several designs found in the Anchored 6X6 Paper Bundle. I hand-cut the small squares and then adhered them over the matching stamped images on the paper.  
For extra dimension, I hand stitched a few X's over the largest squares with a stormy blue thread.

For this next card, I combined two stamp sets
I used the Waterlily stamp and sentiment and then the leaves found in the "What's For Dinner" Set.  I used the neutral side of the Elegant Foundations 2 paper and stamped the lily image in both VersaMagic Midnight Black  and Sea Breeze. I hand-cut the images out and then arranged them over the  Elegant Journal Card.

The leaves were stamped with a VersaMagic Bamboo ink and then adhered. I also used the Midnight Black ink to add color to the wooden butterfly. Sweet Stamp Shop stamps give you a nice, clean image with a variety of ink types.
