Weekend Card – What a pear

The first weekend video of 2011 is here. I made a card which can be used as a Valentine’s or anniversary or wedding card.

and a closer look to that cute little heart with glossy accent

I get a lot of questions about distress inks and how I use them on clear stamps. Distress ink is for distressed look, so don’t expect perfect impressions. If you are looking for a clean and perfect look then you should use dye or chalk inks on clear stamps. You can see the sentiment here as an example.

  2. So great you’re back! Loved the card and love the way you distressed it! Really brought the pears to life and added the deep color along the outer edge just gave it so much pop! Great job.

    Lovely distressing to color the pears! I bought the Ranger craft sheet (the large size) and I wouldn’t craft without it anymore. I distress, paint, emboss, use my glue gun, and color with my copics on it and it takes it all! (Just don’t cut on it ;D)

    Loved the video and the card. So charming and beautiful. I have been wanting to add green inks to my Ranger distress inks because I only have peeled paint, and I have just learned from your card/film that I need both crushed olive and forest moss! Thanks!

    Beautiful card. Tried to find the stamp sets you used when i followed your links however after going through 30 pages of store items – no luck! Do they still carry them? Help!
    Thanks!

      The stamp sets I used for that cards were: “What a pear” by BasicGrey and “Simply the best” by Hero Arts. I am sure I was linking directly to those products but now I guess they are out of stock. Now you know the names of the stamps maybe you can find them somewhere else. Thank you so much for visiting and I hope I’ve helped.
