Double Carves at Double Dutch Press!

Earlier this year I took a two color stamp carving class at Double Dutch Press and created these wonderful rubber stamps.  The design I chose is from Geninne Zlatkis' book and I am psyched about how they turned out.  The card is on the left and the envelope is on the right.  The background stamp is on the top and the detail stamp is on the bottom...

Pattidee Returns

Wow!  I can't believe how long it has been since I posted.  I have been dabbling in some new mediums and have quite a few exciting things to post around the holidays (starting with Halloween).  In the mean time, let me catch up.  Here is my Easter card.

The frame on the outside is intended to look like tarnished silver.  I created it by heat embossing the die cut frame in silver and then heat embossing again with UTEE.  To get the tarnished effect you just dab on the UTEE sparingly - only where you want the piece to be tarnished.  I was going for a shabby chic vibe withe floral paper and I even went so far as to sand the paper here and there.  I love these little birds on a branch!
