My Friend…

***This is my second post today! To see my Festive Friday post, please scroll down!***

Hey guys! I am here to share a couple of cards that I made for this week’s technique challenge for Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday.

This week the technique was shared by Betsy Veldman, who is a huge inspiration for me… she can do pure magic with stamps and ink, I tell you!! This is called “Ghost Masking” and it is really cool! If you want to see for yourself, click here for the video!

First, I created a card for our friends who just welcomed their twins. You might remember I shared the cards that I made for the babies here.

This is pretty low profile for me, but I kept the recipients in mind – they are more clean and simple.

Next, I created a card for a friend of mine who made a pretty big move recently, both physically, but also personally. I’ve been thinking lots about her, and wanted her to know she’s on my mind.

This time, I switched things up a bit, and took a dimensional approach with the frame and die cut. Here is a close up of the label:

I had so much fun with this one… you might see it again from me!

Have I mentioned yet that I have a Giveaway for you to enter? *wink*

    I saw Betsy's video. I also just LOVE her stuff. I really like the effect you got by raising the label with some dimensional adhesive on the second card. The floral stamps were also really pretty. Thank you for a lovely card.

    Meredith, this technique was made for you! What gorgeous cards you have made, but…my favourite has to be your raised up shadow stamped label, it's gorgeous! Your friend will surely appreciate your thoughts, and beautiful card.

    They're show-stoppers Meredith! I saw Betsy's video in my feed, but haven't had chance to take a look how the technique works… now I see I really *need* to pay attention! Rx
