Wednesday Card Day – Wishing You Love and Laughter

Hi everyone!

Wednesday Card Day Intro


Today’s card is an inspiration I got from a card shared by Christina Kowalczyk from My Paper Secret at the Clean and Simple Online Card Class – One Layer Cards. She did the same sharp color blocking technique but used embossing powder instead. I was inspired by that and decided to use a stamp rather than embossing powder.

Here is my card —

Wishing You Love and Laughter

On a standard size card, I masked off an area at the center to fit my sentiment. Then around it, with 5/8 inch strips of masking paper, I started creating my blocked abstract pattern. I used the swirly stamp from Simon Says Stamp Life is a Journey set. That set is one of my favorites from SSS. I stamped the swirl image in each blocked area with different inks. (See supply list below with all the colors I used)

For the sentiment, I used the Truly Appreciated set from Hero Arts. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
