Creating Motion using Layers & the Greatest Journey Bundle

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I can’t wait for you to see this card, I absolutely love the way it turned out!! Today I have a video … the replay of my Facebook LIVE where I shared two cards the featured the Greatest Journey bundle. I will show you how to create “motion” by using several of the same dies and a slight change of color, then you will see a simple card with a fun pop of color made mostly of scraps!

Join me for a bit and watch the video, after which I will share any dimensions needed for our cards…

So … I didn’t actually start my kitchen on fire, but a little fire inside one of my pans, easily taken care of, but not the way one would like to start their day! lol OK … back to our cards. I wanted to create the appearance of motion with my card, and since there is no coordinating stamp, I could not do the dragging technique (which smears the ink and makes it look like it’s moving).

I thought the layering technique worked well ….

The great part of this is you are using up your scraps! Anything big enough to fit your images on. The colors for my layers are: Basic Black, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, and Basic White … which is amazingly visible on the card. My Basic Black card base is the standard A2 size: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored and folded at 4-1/4. The Basic White Front is 5-1/4″ x 4″. Keepin’ it easy.

The next card was just an easy pop of color and was also done mostly with scraps!

While I was preparing my photos for the blog, I realized that instead of die cutting my runners out of black … I could have die cut the image “out of” the color blocks and let the black show through! Another way to create dimension …. WOW! The possibilities never end.

The color blocks are die cut from the Stylish Shapes dies (as is the banner) the black mat behind it measures 3″ x 4-3/4″ and the Starry Sky piece is 3-1/4″ x 5″ … the Basic Black card base is the standard A2 size: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored and folded at 4-1/4.

I hope you enjoyed today’s adventure into creating “motion” on your cards and give it a try. If you are interesting in purchasing this bundle, I have the links below.
