Exquisite Celebrations (by Asha)

Good morning, fellow Chocoholics. It's my turn to show you the October release stamps in action. My projects today feature stamps from the Exquisite Edges A5 sheet.

First up is a Christmas card in silver and green. I inked the edges of the card with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink and stamped a border stamp from Exquisite Edges on opposite sides of the card. The focal image is the 3 bells from A Child Is Born. I added some glitter and bling to embellish the card-



My second card is an explosion of colour. This time I've gone for bold and sumptuous colours by  heat embossing a stamp from Exquisite Edges in gold. Then I blended several Distress Inks to create a rich and vibrant background. The peacock is from the Indian Textiles stamp set, coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos.



Thank you for taking a peek. The Design Team has loads more projects lined up for you. Don't forget to drop by again ... soon. As usual, more pictures and details of supplies used to make these projects are available over at my blog.

Have a beautiful day!

Beijinhos,
Asha

  2. Both cards are stunning but the first is my favourite. I've always loved those bells & they look gorgeous in this colourway and teamed with the beautiful edge.

  3. Wow Asha! What exquisite cards. Love the bells together with the edges but (for me) a little bit of Eastern promise has stolen the show.

  5. Two gorgeous and very different uses for these stamps Asha. I love the bells framed so prettily by the exquisite edges and the pretty green inking, and then the second card with that explosion of colour and the lovely blue for the peacock complements the orange tones perfectly. x

    1. Hi Michelle, On my first card I inked the stamp with VersaFine ink. It's my preferred ink for detailed stamping. Hope this helps. If you have more questions, feel free to send me an email: ashamartins@gmail.com
