Ikat Notecard

Hey everyone! Happy Monday!

If you’re looking for it, the info post on StampSpotlight will be going live at 2pm EST today – make sure you tune in!

So, after a really hectic weekend of crafting (I created something like 10 projects at least, ack!), I had to create a quick card for today’s post. Irresistibly Ikat to the rescue! I wonder if this is going to become a go-to set for me!

I decided to create a little notecard, and here’s what I ended up with:

A much more ‘traditional’ formation for my pattern this time, but still rocking the same colour combo as before – I guess I’m crushin’ on it a little!

I stamped my patterns onto my Rustic White card base using A:Muse Burano and Versafine Onyx Black inks. I actually kept my stamp dirty in between sometimes to end up with a two-tone effect, and sometimes just a little overstamping too. Really pleased with how this turned out – though my inkpad needed a good clean after and didn’t thank me for it! My notecard is little indeed – 2 1/8″ x 5.5″ (aka I used the supplies I had to hand – there was a standard A2 sized piece of cardstock lying about and I scored it to make a base. Why not, eh?).

Same method as before with the sentiment strip – strip of cardstock, Versamark ink, heat emboss with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale Super Fine embossing powder (God that’s a mouthful, lol!). I then stamped the sentiment in Versafine and Versamark and heat embossed with Filigree Clear embossing powder. I did try Stazon at first but it didn’t work (as expected, Stazon is rubbish!).

Anyway, that was all there was too it! Very quick and simple, this came together in no time at all!

Well, I would love to know what you think of this notecard! Please let me know! And *do* tune back in later on for the details on StampSpotlight – it’s going to be SO exciting!! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. LOVE the effect of the remaining black on your stamping. I'm sure your ink pad hated your guts after this session! Love that you did it anyway for your craft, that's so YOU : ) Also like the narrow format so there's just one column of ikat. Makes you really focus on it. Well done!
