Retired but too beautiful to be redundant - part 2 by Zoe

Good morning Lovelies and welcome to my second post this month featuring the wonderful retired stamps from last months shows.
I hope you managed to some bargains.

I have paper pads in my stash that I’ve had for years, I just never use them, I like creating my own backgrounds usually but I thought it was about time I gave them an airing. 

These stamps are so beautiful and versatile that even using pre-printed paper pads for the backgrounds did not detract from the detail on the stamps.

First 2 cards, I stamped using Versafine Claire Nocturne and heat embossed using a clear sparkle embossing powder.

Third card I stamped using a pink Distress Oxide ink pad and heat embossed with clear EP on the background paper, then white EP on Velum and an MDF heart which I gessoed then coloured using the same Oxide ink pad and used an Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) and whilst molten inked the stamp with black ink and stamped onto the heart.

Love doing Eclipse cards and of course I always love doing Envelopes so why not do matching? 
It does actually say “Mother” but it doesn’t all stand out as much.

Thank you once again for visiting.
Have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
