I’m using Stampin’ Up!’s Secret Garden again – I just love this stamp set! This time I used the silhouette stamps with the ghost stamping technique. I saw it on Jennifer Maguire’s blog recently and thought it was very cool! It involves white ink and colored ink on kraft (I used SU crumb cake) cardstock, and it’s not very hard to do.
You see the mess-up at the top of the card? Yes, I laid a baby wipe a little too close to the edge of the card while it was on my table and the black started bleeding everywhere. I tried to fix it with a sanding block and a white gel pen! Ugh.
This card is a lot easier when your stamp clings to the block. If it falls off, you have to reset your stamp-a-ma-jig. If you haven’t already seen this post on how to make Stampin’ Up! stamps cling to the blocks, check it out.
Here are the measurements for the different segments:
Crumb Cake: 3 5/8″ x 1 1/4″, 2 5/8″ x 1 1/4″, and 2″ x 1 1/4″
Black: 3 7/8″ x 1 1/2″, 2 7/8″ x 1 1/2″, and 2 1/4″ x 1 1/2″
