Repeat Stamping (by Debbie)

 
Good morning.
I've really had fun playing working with the Fleurs Nouveau stamps.
For my first card I had great fun colouring the flower with pencils and wanted to keep the colours soft as I used Memento London Fog for stamping as a change to using black ink.
I cut out the flowers with an oval die and blended with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
I stamped around the oval with words from the Amazing Birthday words. These are clear stamps and they will bend beautifully and you can see where you're stamping. The flower oval was attached with foam pads and I mounted onto a pale pink.
 
 
 
The mathematical side of my brain was very happy doing the repeat stamping for the background of this card. The stamp is from the Nouveau Lovebirds set. I love symmetrical things like fabrics and wall paper.
I stamped with a pale green and because there is a lot of detail in the background decided a sentiment on a label shape would be sufficient as a topper.
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by
Debbie

  1. Two beautifully stamped cards Debbie. I agree grey ink is a gentler option and your delicate colouring and ink shading is lovely. I am so impressed with your sentiment stamping around the oval, so perfectly spaced and placed. Your second card is great, again lovely placing and a great classy looking card. Elaine x

  7. Two quite unfussy but lovely cards. I love the flowers and the soft pink colour you have used on the first one, and the repeat stamping, and the sentiment label and that pretty white satin ribbon complement this card perfectly. x

  9. Such pretty cards! Fab use of colour and so very different from any of the other creations we have seen with these stamps. I love repeat stamping and don't do it as often as I should. Thank you for sharing Karen x

  10. The soft colours of the first are delightful especially when combined with the grey stamping & your soft pencil colouring. The green leaves really draw the eye & your sentiment oval repeat stamping is a lovely idea curving about the focal image. As for the second - just a really lovely piece - it ticks all my boxes in elegance & original design, the sentiment stamped in black over the partial image is a striking touch especially when combined with that lovely satin white ribbon.
