It is so much fun to create 2 different projects when using the same supplies. I placed assorted acrylic paints from Prima Marketing on a craft mat and then dragged white cardstock through the paint. This method provides some very different backgrounds for your cards.
I embossed the panels with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder, then lightly inked over the embossed portions with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The ink really highlighted the embossing. I matted the panel with Bazzill Whirlypop cardstock, then wrapped May Arts ribbon around the panel and inserted a Tim Holtz Memo Pin in the knot. A sentiment from Stamping Bella - Lolly and her Brolly - was added.
I used the same Crafter's Companion embossing folder for my second card and also lightly inked over the embossed portions with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I matted the panel with Bazzill Whirlypop cardstock. To create a vertical card, I wrapped May Arts ribbon vertically, then inserted a Tim Holtz Memo Pin in the ribbon. I used a sentiment from another Stamping Bella stamp set - Abigail the Artist, adding it to a Tim Holtz memo Pin.
Why not try this technique? It opens us so many possibilities.
