Trav's Card Style #2 (breaking the rules) with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:} 

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I'm sharing another quick start-to-finish card with you!! Since I'm still over in Israel, I needed something quick to make! Trav's Card Style is the perfect design for this quick video:) 


I have to be honest... I do NOT like Trav's Card Style-- it's sooooooooo boring! There's nothing to it! SOOOOO plain! So I kind of broke the rules (i.e. "stamp ribbon done") for this creation! LOL! 

Here's the video:

Trav's Card Style with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:} 

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I'm sharing a quick start-to-finish card with you!! This card and video are quick today because...

  1. Trav and I leave for a trip to Israel in less than 24 hours!!!!! HOOOOORAY:)
  2. I ran out of time!
  3. Trav kind of challenged me in our interview video (HERE)-- he said if I ever tried "his" card style/design than the video would be quick! That's exactly what I needed since I haven't even packed for our trip yet!!! LOL!  
So I tried Trav's Card Style-- also known as "Stamp Ribbon Done". I think this card turned out super cute.... but I want to add sooooooooo much more! LOL! 

I actually think that I might start a NEW feature here on the VS blog using Trav's Card Style as my inspiration/design! LOL! 

Here's the video:

Combining Flirty Frames with Duo Die 1, Duo Die 2 and Frame 1


Hi, it's Emily Leiphart here and today I'm sharing two cards using the Flirty Frames stamp set! I'm combining the first one with the Duo Die 1 and Frame 1 dies. For both of my cards, I use the emboss resist technique with distress inks. The balloons are first- and second-generation stamped on the Frame 1 die.


My second card uses the other frame stamp that coordinates with the Duo Die 2 die. I heat embossed this with gold embossing powder and sponged darker distress inks using the emboss resist technique.


I used water to mist the distress inks on this card, creating a beautiful, blended watercolour look.


See how both of these cards came together:



Thanks so much for stopping by!
