Best of Greetings Week!


Best of Greetings class projects-2

It’s the Best of Greetings week here at inkingoutofthebox!  All week, I’ll be sharing the 8 cards I’ve made for next week’s Best of Greetings stamp class.  Today, you get TWO samples!

The Happy Day birthday card has a background of Whisper White, Basic Gray and Bermuda Bay DSP.  I then stamped the greeting as well as a few balloons onto a piece of Soft Sky.  I stamped an equal amount of balloons onto scrap paper such as:  Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple, Crisp Canteloupe and Bermuda Bay.  These all got paper-pieced onto the cardfront and then got a few dots of dazzling details for some sparkle.

The 3 x 3 size friend card is classy and simple.  I punched a large oval from a piece of Soft Sky and then ran it through the Big Shot with the small oval embossing folder.  I tied around a piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8″taffeta ribbon and attached to the white cardfront with dimensionals.  I then simply stamped the greeting inside the oval space.

Guess what else is going to be all week???
