Moving Along …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I picked today’s stamp set as a reflection of how our summers “used to be” and hoping we kick this virus and can travel again! I’m sharing several different layouts … Now you can wish your friends happy travels with this whimsical, transportation-themed stamp set. Great for children or adults.

Helicopter Card
No trimming needed! Stamp on the Whisper White Cardstock, use Stampin’ Seal to adhere the Designer Series Paper to the Smoky Slate card base, then attach the stamped cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Car Card
Cut the Whisper White Cardstock into four squares measuring 1-7/8″ x 1-7/8″ (4.8 x 4.8 cm) and stamp. Attach the Designer Series Paper to the Smoky Slate card base with Stampin’ Seal, then adhere the squares to the Designer Series Paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Train Card
Trim the Whisper White Cardstock into three strips measuring 3-3/4″ x 1-1/4″ (9.5 x 3.2 cm) and stamp. Attach the Designer Series Paper to the Smoky Slate cardstock with Stampin’ Seal, then adhere the stamped strips to the Designer Series Paper using Dimensionals.

The three simple layouts give you the perfect way to change things up when using the same stamp set!

Feel the need for speed? Step it up by creating depth and dimension with your images using Two-Step Stampin’, stamp the silhouette image in the lightest color of ink. Then stamp the detailed images in darker colors.

Now we have a lot of dimension by creating a background and tucking it behind your card front. You’re creating “windows” to the world by using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Cutting out your images and mounting them to the cardfront gives you the 3-D effect.

Have fun playing with these simple layouts and get as creative as you want.

Thank you for joining me today. Hope you day is filled with fun and sunshine.

Just for you ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday I shared a sneak peak at one of our Halloween stamp sets and one of the things I spoke of was the “layout” of the card.

Here is the card I shared with you yesterday …

Here is today’s card with the same layout, just a new designer paper and stamp set!

I chose Pretty Petals designer series paper stack and teamed it up with the “Watercolor Words” stamp set. I stamped the greeting in Old Olive on Very Vanilla and punched it out using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch. I followed up by punching out an Old Olive circle with the 1-3/4″ punch.

Then I highlighted the flowers by punching them out and adding a Calypso Coral mat behind it.  The layout is so fun and easy to use … think kids cards, Christmas, Birthday … anything really!

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

 

 

Simply Sunday: Howl-o-ween Sneak Peak!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday I told you that I would share a cute card created with the Howl-o-ween stamp set that I won at Convention. It is a quick and easy card and they layout works for anything!

I started with my Howl-o-ween stamp set and teamed it up with the “Cherry on Top” designer series paper stack. I chose the little candies … how appropriate

for Trick-or-Treat! I simply stamped the greeting on Crushed Curry and punched it out using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch. I followed up by punching out a black circle with the 1-3/4″ punch.

For the highlight … I punched out a piece of the designer paper and covered it with Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds!! It just adds a sweet touch of sparkle to the card.

Just think of all the different type of cards you can create using this layout… three simple punches, some pretty paper and a greeting!
