Today was another fun face time crafting session with Peggy. My mood is lifting and I am more interested in cardmaking again. I think its the face time sessions and not feeling so isolated any longer. My local crafting group and I have been meeting via messenger video chats, but only 8 of our group of 10 can participate at any one time due to the limitations. Now there is a group chat for up to 50 so we are trying that out Friday night. I am looking forward to it.
So today I was scrolling through blogs, and I watched Jennifer McGuires video on splitting an image for two cards. The you tube video is here. While she used diecuts, I decided to try it with stamps.
I stamped my flowers several times from the Newton's Nook set Peony Blossoms, and colored using dark pink copic colors. After cutting the 8.5 by 5.5 stamped and colored piece in half at the 4.25 inch mark, I decided to flip one over so that both would be on the left side of the card. I added a bit of black to each card and a sentiment. Then mounted the panels onto a matching card base.
I will probably try this method again...I did enjoy getting two cards from it.
These cards are going to Just Add Ink, and Addicted to Stamps and More.
Thanks for visiting.
