Cheerful Get Well
This is another commissioned card for my client. She wanted an assortment of bright, cheery get well cards, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try out the Versa Shadow Technique. It's a quick technique that can turn an ordinary card into a WOW card!
It works best on medium- to deep-colored cardstock. Stamp and heat emboss the image with light-colored embossing powder and a heat tool. (Don't forget to use an embossing buddy first to eliminate static!) Then take a VersaMark pen, and trace around the image to make the "shadow". Easy-peasy!
Actually, there are two techniques on this card. I did the "rock & roll" technique on the flower.
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Mixed Bunch
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Old Olive
Ink: VersaMark pad, VersaMark pen, Peach Parfait Classic, Pumpkin Pie Classic, Basic Black Classic
Accessories: White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Blossom Punch, Oval Punch, Paper Crimper, Summer Sun Corduroy Button Brad (retired), Lucky Limeade 1/8" Organza Ribbon (retired)

Great tip and a fantastic card! I've never seen that technique before. Thanks for sharing it!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous card! I love that technique, it looks amazing! I really need to try it!ReplyDelete
Lovely card! I finally got my punch and stamp set ordered, so it should be here wed or thurs! Yea! I just tried this technique last week, and I used baroque motifs also, but mine didn't turn out as nicely as yours.ReplyDelete
Oh WOW, Cindy! So beautiful! I've not seen this technique before. I can't wait to give it a try! Your client is very smart to have chosen you!ReplyDelete
Wowwww so beautiful.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful card! And THANK YOU so much on the tip with the marker!! I had seen something similar but it involved stamping the image again with Versamark. The marker will be so much better than trying to line it up "just so" to restamp.ReplyDelete
Great card and fabulous tip about the marker. I will be trying this with my technique club soon!ReplyDelete
What a great tip! Thanks so much... this card is stunning!ReplyDelete
This will work much better than stamping with white craft ink! TFS! I'm off to try this approach!ReplyDelete
TFS! This should work much better for me than stamping with white craft ink and then outlining with Versamark.ReplyDelete
This is a stunning card - thanks for sharing the technique, I'll have to try that!!ReplyDelete
