Social Stamping - Get Better Soon


Joining the Social Stamping monthly blog hop with Kelly Kent and friends and our theme this month is 'Get Better Soon'! 

I've seen some fun cards recently using Stampin' Blends and Window Sheet (credit to Michelle Jutrisa). However, I've done things a little differently. Anybody else like me and still have a stash of Glossy cardstock? 

I added scribbles of Stampin' Blends onto Window Sheet and spritzed with isopropyl alcohol then turned the sheet over and pressed it onto the glossy card. I added colour as I saw fit and when it was a little wet from the alcohol you could smoosh it around and watch the image alter.I was rushing a little so decided to go with what I had, and because it came together so quickly, I've used them all. 

I set my Stamparatus up with an image and greeting from Dandelion Wishes. I love this set for resist embossing, but decided to have a change today. I've inked two with Bermuda Ink, the greeting didn't come out as well I'd like, but when I used Misty Moonlight for the other two, it must be that there wasn't quite enough ink as it really grabbed, although I think some of the little seeds may have not inked, but I was still happy with the result. I did have to set these aside while I made a cuppa just to make sure the ink had dried. I could have sped it up with the heat gun but didn't want to risk warping the lovely smooth card.

I've used mats of Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz and mounted all onto thick Whisper White card bases using Stampin' Dimensionals

The greeting is perfect to send someone who's feeling a bit under the weather, although it lends itself to a wider audience as well.

I've used three Stampin' Blends colours per card, although sometimes where the colour merged it looked like another colour had been brought in. I think I like this last one the most;
