CARDS - New Crafty Individuals stamps (1)


I can finally share with you the brand new Crafty Individuals stamps which just got released first on Hochanda, and then, in a couple of weeks, you will be able to get them on the Crafty Individuals website.

I will start with CI-518, Butterfly Morning, which I must admit is probably my favourite out of the four new stamps. On this first card, I used it with their glossy card, which I love as the details just stamp beautifully on it. 


As it is a glossy card, not every ink/medium will come out well. I definitely did not use any alcohol inks as I don't have any (and don't like them). So I used a different technique, which I will hopefully share with you very soon (health and energy permitting)

I made a grey blueish background on this one and stamped the image with Versafine ink.
I stamped it again on white card, and cut out the butterfly, clock, big letter, some of the circles which I then glued to the card to make them stand out.

 I also embossed the stars using a Versamark pen and silver embossing powder

Added a touch of glitter glue on the wings of the butterfly ... et voilĂ  :)


For the second card, I only used the big butterfly from CI-518 (stamped on the glossy card again with Versafine), alongside some smaller butterflies from CI-231

The background is very simple. Flourishes from CI-235 (Floral Flourishes and Swirls) stamped with Distress oxide inks and embossed with clear (or glitter? can't remember) embossing powder.

The "Fragile, handle with care" is from another new stamp plate which I will show you very soon

Will come back soon for more :)
