Faded Jeans

I was looking through People magazine and saw that denim is used in addition to jeans for items such as bags, shoes and other accessories. With that in mind, I started using my Faded Jeans Ranger Ink. For this card I used SU stamp from the SU 24-7 Set and inked it in Faded Jeans. I then took the corners and cut it with the new corner punch that was in the mini catalog. I needed to pull in a little more color so I sponged Faded Jeans ink on a slightly larger rectangle. I wasn't sure if I should use an additional color but went for it with Ranger Ink Aged Mahogany. I liked the way everything look but wanted to try the Distressed Stickles so I added some Faded Jean Stickles to the blue paper and Aged Mahogany Stickles to the heart. I am very happy with the way this card turned out.

Sometimes I like to just sit and stamp with no real thought or direction. Today I stamped two of SU 24-7 stamps in Watermark Resist Ink and then sponged it in Faded Jeans ink. I was very happy with the results from that project and decided to cut the paper in half and make two cards out of it. I then stamped the bird again in Faded Jeans ink and cut it out. I then highlighted part of the bird with Faded Jeans Distressed Stickles. I took a sponge to a 1 inch strip of paper and added Stained Walnut Ranger Distressed Ink and then cut it with the Eyelet Punch from Stampin' Up. In addition I stained another small piece of paper in Faded Jeans and Stamped Happy Birthday in Walnut Stain ink. For my last card I punched out one of the corners and stained the edges with Walnut Stained Ranger Distressed Ink. I took the Walnut Stained ink and punched out an oval scallop shape and stained it. Finally with Faded Jeans I sponged an oval shape and stamped Thank You in Walnut Stain ink.
These two cards (Happy Birthday and Thank You) are now listed at my on-line store http://www.lindascozycraftcorne.etsy.com/.
