Make It Monday #256 - Spritzed Stamps

Hello friends.  Melissa Phillips shares her tips on this weeks Make It Monday video on how to get a water colored look with spritzing your stamps with water.  This has been a favorite technique of mine for some time now, but if you've never tried it, you definitely need to check Melissa's video and beautiful cards out!

I used Maile Belle's  Splits: Just A Note stamp set and came up with a set of 4 note cards in a very short time.  Take a look:




I used Hibiscus Burst and Orange Zest inks and then embossed the sentiments in black.  (I did use the "thank you" from one of the other Splits stamp set)  Then I simply layered each panel with a piece of Hibiscus Burst and Orange Zest card stock, and then mounted that to a white card base.  A few enamel dots finished off each of these CAS cards, and that quickly I now have a nice little set of note cards to give one of my girlfriends next month for her birthday!  :0)

Still time to play along, so check out Melissa's video and beautiful cards right HERE and play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)

  6. What friend wouldn't love this set of darling notecards, Marcia? Love all the white space with your pops of color. Hibiscus Burst and Orange Zest worked very well for this technique. Now I "need" some Splits, too!
