Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Favorite Retiring

May 12, 2019 6 Comments

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. And today, I’m sharing creations with Calligraphy Essential for the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Favorite Retiring. It’s been one of my favorite sentiment sets and now it’s time bid farewell.

 

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Header

 

  • beginner/simple stamping: quick, easy projects needing limited supplies; clean and simple cards;
  • casual stamping: takes a little more time, uses some tools, more embellishments, creations for an occasion;
  • avid stamping: more time, techniques, tools, whatever it is, I want to do it!

Beginner Card

Do you ever have so much fun with a technique or stamp set

that you just can’t put it down?

That’s been me with the Sponge Brayer this week!

It makes perfect no layer cards with a good sentiment set.

One of my favorites is Calligraphy Essentials (retiring).

HERE’s a video for the brayer technique.

Use your brayer to ink the Whisper White panel with

Soft Sea Foam and Mint Macaron.

Stamp the sentiment in Basic Gray.

To go from no layer to layers:

add a Basic Gray mat 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″

Mint Macaron card base 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

    These are lovely Sara! I hadn’t given this set a second look…until now.

      Thanks, Ashley! Glad to “make you look”.

  • tamihewlett May 12, 2019 at 9:27 am

    Sara, all your cards are fantastic! Love the idea of stepping up a single layer card for each one, and the layered backgrounds are gorgeous!

    • Sara Levin May 12, 2019 at 10:23 am

      Thanks, Tami! I was working with the “sometimes it’s just the little things” design plan 😉
