2-Step Stamping

 I created this easy card & envelope today using the butterfly 2-Step Stamp. These stamps consist of two stamps, one being a solid stamp & the other an outline stamp. You get a beautiful effect by stamping the solid stamp in a lighter coloured ink & then stamping the outline in a darker coloured ink. You do not need to position the outline over the solid image perfectly, it only adds to the effect.

Kaszazz have a great selction of 2-Step stamps! The technique looks fantastic on cards & scrapbooking layouts. Check out the full range of designs in the 2-Step Stamps on page 168 - 172 of the current Kaszazz Catalogue. Link to the right of screen.

Personalised Kids Birthday Cards

 This weekend I have two kids birthday parties to attend. I created these cards for each child. My niece is turning 5 & a friends son is turning 14. These cards were very quick & easy to create. I have used our Carnival Letter Stamp Set - stamped their names on the bottom of the cards with perfect medium & embossed with clear embossing powder. I found the letters didn't show up on the yellow as they have on the blue, so I  shaded Pearlescent Chalk over the top of the letters, it gives the letters a lovely shimmer too, perfect for a little girl. As Dieter & Taliah, have unusual names, I'm sure they will love their personalised cards. All products, except for the ribbons are Kaszazz Products, please contact me if you would like to order any of these products used today.

Cheers, Tina
