Same Layout, Two Different Looks

January 20, 2012

Earlier this week I held  a class with some very lovely ladies, who have been coming to classes since I first joined Stampin’ Up! back in May 2007.  The really nice thing about doing a class with these ladies is that I get to visit with my Mum and Dad.

Anyway, we made 3 cards last night and I shared the tutorial instructions with the ladies which gives all the cutting dimensions etc. and I wanted to show them that they could take this information and make a completely different card.

They made this very masculine card to the left (although I forgot the stampset and had to improvise, sorry again ladies) and I made this very feminine card to the right using the same sizes for the cut pieces.

I started with a base card of Basic Black and attached a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I matted two different pieces of Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper onto Basic Black and attached them to the card front.  I cut one of the Melon Mambo doily shapes from the paper which also comes in the Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper and attached it to the card front.  I stamped the flower from the Creative Elements stamp set onto Whisper White card stock three times using Wisteria Wonder ink, cut out one full flower and two smaller sections of flower, attached them using dimensionals and then added it to the centre of the doily.  I stamped the butterfly from the same stamp set onto Whisper White card, cut it out and attached it to the card front using a Mini Glue dot behind the body and half a dimensional behind each wing.

I believe I showed them how simple it is to take one layout and change it to look completely different while still using the same sized components.

The instructions for the male card will be available for purchase on my tutorials page next month after I have held my Stamp-A-Stack which also includes this card.  I will let you know when it is available, or you could keep watching  my classes and workshops page and attend in person, then you get the instructions free.

I’d love to hear what you think of my two different cards using the same layout.

Bye for now, Kris.
