SYS2.Day 2

Hello! Here we are at Day 2 for Stretch Your Stamps 2 with Online Card Classes. What fun! Today we extended on what we learned yesterday with background stamps.

This card uses the same background stamp (Hero Arts--thank you, Lisa K!) I had yesterday but today's use was totally different. Jennifer McGuire provided a video that taught us this technique, so I gave it a try.

I inked my stamp with Perfect Medium and stamped it onto white cardstock. Then I used Perfect Pearls to get the color and the shimmer. The ribbon was from my stash, and the sentiment is from Stephanie Barnard's Stamps of Life.

I think this made a perfect Sympathy card with its peaceful shimmer. So glad I had a piece of ribbon to match!

Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again soon ~


  1. This is lovely! I'm on vacation and haven't even watched the videos, yet! You're motivating me to get myself in the game!

  2. Lovely card. The stamp is Hero Arts. I'll go look later for the exact name.

  3. Super cool cards. Now tell me, can you take this class any time, with just the live feed a time certain? I love the look of your cards and would like to learn how, but don't want to be tied down to a specific day. You are really nailing these techniques. Love your eye for color and design!!!!

  4. This is just so beautiful! Been a long time since I pulled out my Perfect Pearls. I love that look.


I'd love to read your comments!
