Indigo Blu

Good Morning 

Today I would like to share with you two cards I recently made on a Workshop at The Stamp Pad. The workshop was run by Julie Dawson design team member for Indigo Blu. In this workshop we used two of the Indigo Blu Christmas Stamp plate.

This first card is a 5x7" card blank. The white background was inked around the edges, leaving the middle white, with Peeled Paint distress ink. In the top right hand corner we used the wreath stamp inked with Forest Moss distress ink. The baubles were stamped in encore Gold ink.
The Bows were stamped onto white card with versamark and then covered with Frantage aged green embossing powder. They were then cut out and then the white areas inked with peeled paint ink. We then used some frantage embossing powder and used then encrusted jewel technique where we added mica flakes, glass glitter and other bits and pieces into the molten embossing powder. This is on the bottom left hand side of the card. We then put a Merry Christmas peel off on the green ribbon across the bottom of the card. These stamps were from the Wreathed in Smiles Stamp Plate from The Stamp Pad

For the next card I used a A5 landscape card blank. The mother and baby image on the right hand side is from Indigo Blu Joy to the World Stamp Plate. We stamped her with versamark onto cream card and then used Aged Bronze embossing enamel. Also on Cream card I stamped the verse from the Joy to the World set.Both these were then matted onto gold mirri card. The verse was then layered onto Black velvet paper which had been die cut using nestabilities Labels 22. The background card is a square of white card which has been randomly stamped with the pine branch from the Wreathed in Smiles stamp plate. The stamp was inked up with forest moss distress ink and then stamped a number of times without reinking in between each impression. This gives a fabby amount of  colour variation.
Both panels were then matted onto black mirri card and then attached to the card blank.

Thanks for stopping by. 
I appreciate all comments you may have on my cards.



  1. Beautiful cards. I really like Indigo Blu stamps but don't have any yet. Must change that!
