I was going to do a card using one of my new Cover-a-Card™ stamps, but thought what you might like best is to get to know more about the stamp and what you can do with the results. The Cover-a-Card™ stamp used for all of the techniques is CC024 Tapestry.
I did four backgrounds using 4 quick different quick techniques and here they are:
A. VersaMark Resist -
- The stamp was inked with VersaMark on Glossy White cardstock.
- A sponge brayer was inked with a Pink Dye ink and rolled across the card. You can let it dry on its own.
- I stamp on a stack of used computer paper, so I turned it over to blot it just in case it wasn't all dry. Dye ink dries very quickly, but my pad was inked well and I wanted the ink area even. (Clicking on the photo gives you a much better idea of the coverage and image.
- White cardstock was stamped with the VersaMarked Cover-a-Card™.
- It was embossed with White Pearl Embossing Powder. I like this for a Wedding or Engagement card. It looks lovely on Vanilla or Ivory cardstock for Anniversaries too. Again, you need to click on it to appreciate how really elegant it can be.
- I brayered White cardstock with a Caramel colored Dye Ink.
- Sponged with an Orange dye ink here and there.
- Stamped with Tapestry stamp inked with VersaMark.
- Embossed with Ivory Pearl Embossing Powder.
Take a look at those Fall colors and the leaves and hearts that show up. Great for a touch of Fall or a male card really. Click on it and you will see all of the details.
D. Sponged Dy Ink and Glitzy Emboss -
- Sponged White cardstock with a light, medium, and dark Olive dye ink.
- Inked stamp with VersaMark.
- Embossed with Egyptian Gold Embossing Powder.
It can be used:
- inside the card and on the lower left side of the envelope.
- to punch leaves, etc. for the same purpose.
- with other pieces to create interest on the background of your card.
- to make a Bargello card similar to this one HERE.
- to weave a decorative mat for your card like HERE.
