Here we go, I decided to take pictures of the whole process of the assembly of an invitation!
These are the stacks of papers cut to size
This is the black piece. It is cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
This is the Ivory piece, cut to 4" x 5 1/4" and sprayed with glitter spritz spray.
This is the first start with stamping, I used a light pink firstfor the first dimension of the
flower for the top and bottom corners. This is a 2-step stamping set. I
always start with a light color and add a dark one on top for the dimension
This is a picture of the next layer of the 2-step stamping adventure. This is the darker color on
top to give it the shading on a cherry blossom.
I love the look that it gives it, but we are not done yet!
This picture shows a technique called "ghosting". You use post
-it notes and stamp up near
the adhesive part of the note.
Cut around the image and cover the corresponding image on the
This pictures shows what you do when you ghost! Stamp over the post it and it protects what has
already been stamped!
This is what it looks like when the post-it ghosts are taken off.
Here is the piece with the sentiment stamped on it! Only one more step to go!!
Here is the finished product with the layer of black behind the ivory! It's complete!
