How the heck are ya? Really good from what I'm seeing. . .you look totally awesome!
I'm sorry I copped out of last week's post, but I just wasn't there and I know you know how that is. But I'm here now and with a ton to show you. I've decided to scrap the video blog posts for now until I can get a "real" video camera to do it properly so I'm back to the blah blah post for awhile. I'm looking at the Sony "Bloggie". Does anyone know about it? It is on sale right now at Costco for a great price, so if you have something to tell me about it, I'd love to know. . .I'm getting mixed reviews on the web about it.
OK, enough of soliciting your help, here are my cards for tonight's post:
My friend Mark at DEADBEAT DESIGNS has been doing some great stuff with a stamp he calls a "Shadow Stamp". You can go HERE and see his great video using it. Well it inspired me to say the least, and I wanted to give it a try. There was also a challenge going on at SCS to do CAS cards that sort of used this technique. So I plunged right in and made this set of 4 note cards:
These aren't "pure" CAS cards, but they are close for me anyway. I used his "Shadow Stamp" for the square elements inked with combos of Distress Inks. Two of the images are by Inque and two by Stampabilities. I do love how this set turned out and I am loving his Shadow Stamp. I've got more ideas on using it, and if you visit his blog on the links above, you'll see how he uses it to create backgrounds too. Thanks Mark for your wonderful inspiration and for this wonderful stamp!
And while we are on the subject of Mark's stamps, the next card uses one of my favorite sentiment stamps of his:
The last card I wanted to share (yep lots of cards to make up for not being here last week) is here:
