Slate Cardstock: My New Favorite

I'm obsessed with CTMH's new Slate color.   I love pairing it with White Daisy pigment ink.   My pigment inks sit on the shelf for months, because they are kind of messy.   If you stamp several cards at a time, however, you can let the ink dry on some while finishing the others.   Here are several Christmas cards I made with Slate cs and White Daisy pigment ink.
All of the cards in this post use the flourish stamp from CTMH's "Love Life" set.  The snowflakes are punches highlighted with CTMH's Stardust Glitz.  The blue embellishments are adhesive bling, but all the pearl dots are Liquid Pearls, another new obsession.  I'm too cheap to use that many little pearl embellishments to one card, but I have a whole bottle full of them in Liquid Pearls.  I love the look of the White Daisy ink for the flourish.  The trick is not to use too much ink.   If the ink still doesn't dry fast enough for you, just use your heat tool to speed it up.
Same idea here, except I added a stamp from the "Pear & Partridge" WOTG.  Another note about pigment ink:  I never  mess up my stamp cleaning pads with them.   I wipe off the excess ink with a paper towel, and then take the stamps straight to the sink to rinse off the rest.
The snowman and sentiment on this card are from a new CTMH stamp set "Flakey Friends."  I colored the snowman with copic markers and added some Stardust Glitz and matching baker's twine.  Every shade of blue looks great with the grey and white combo.
I think this is my favorite of all the cards.  It's pretty much the same as the first card above, but has the added punch and sentiment.  The sentiment is from the "Pear & Partridge" WOTG.  I love that set!  You can order all the stamps, cardstock, Stardust Glitz, White Daisy pigment ink, and baker's twine used for these cards any time from my website:  http://mollyrawls.ctmh.com


  1. Love these cards! I agree with you-my fav is the last one! Great balance between color and white images! Very pretty and nice to see how those flourishes and some cuts can really make a card!
    Thank you so much!
