Holiday Card Using Non-Traditional Stamps

By | Cards | No Comments

Hi All,

Welcome back! Today I’d like to share a card I made for OCC Merry Making. This card was inspired by a card demonstration in the class that used non-traditional images to create a holiday card. The demonstration used some non-traditional colors as the card base and I wanted to give that a try as well.

For this card, I used images from 3 different stamps sets. The gold floral embossed image is from Inkadinkado Flowers stamp set. The background tone-on-tone images are from Altenew Vintage Roses and the sentiment is from Little Yellow Bicycle Faith (CSS-104).

I love adding extra embellishments with white gel pen and typically do so by just creating lines or faux stitching. This time I took a note to try some scattered dots similar to the card demo as well. I think using the white is a simple and easy way to bring in some nice contrast.

Here’s a closer look.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon with another project.

Boxed Mini Cards featuring Altenew Stamp Layering

Hi all,

I recently purchased a beautiful set of stamps from Altenew. I am in love with this company for the reason that many of their stamp sets are layering stamps. When you add various hues together, you achieve these beautiful dimensional images!

Here’s a quick glance a boxed set I created. I made 10 mini cards and 10 envelopes to match (they are under the stack in the box).

The sentiment is a mini stamp from a Simon Says Stamp collection.

Regal Royal Blue Wedding Card

By | Cards | No Comments

Hi all,

Quite a while back I purchased this Imperial Jewel rubber cling stamp from Stampendous and absolutely loved how massive of a stamp it is. It’s easily a stamp that can be used to create a big ornate background, or an image that can be stamped and colored in (like a coloring book of sorts).

I decided to give it a more regal look by using Glam Gold embossing powder on a navy blue background. It looks so classy!

I then used a ‘hand written’ sentiment by Altenew and finished off the card.

Just look at all that detail in this card. It measures a bit larger than a standard size at 5.5in by 5.5in.
