Simple stamping

February 1, 2022

I belong to a great Facebook page called World Card Making Group. The group recently ran an all day session of videos showing different ideas for creating cards using supplies from the January to June Mini Catalogue as well as the Sale-a-Bration catalogue. The presentations were made by demonstrators from Australia and overseas and was such fun. One idea shared by Monica Formosa was to use three pieces of cardstock or designer series paper which you stamp on and then cut to create three cards. Today I thought I would share my creations with you.

I used a piece each of So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Balmy Blue card. I stamped each panel with a different leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set using the matching ink for each panel. I cut the panels into three using Monica’s instructions and then I sponged ink onto the outer edges of each panel using the matching ink. I attached three different panels to Basic White card for each card front.

The Basic White panels are attached to either So Saffron, Blushing Bride or Balmy Blue card bases. I die cut the large leaf from Basic White card using the Forever Flourishing Die and attached one to each card front. I stamped the greeting from the Quiet Meadow stamp set onto Basic White card, once using So Saffron ink, once using Blushing Bride ink and once using Balmy Blue ink. I cut out the images using the Beautiful Trees Dies banner die. I dipped the edges of each banner into the co-ordinating ink before attaching them to the card fronts using dimensionals. When you are creating your panels, they are slightly larger than you need so I used each of the left over pieces on the inside of the cards, matching the colour to the card base. I love how they turned out. Monica made one set of cards using cardstock and one set of cards using designer series paper. I think I might have to try this using designer series paper as well.

One of the great things about the World Card Making Group is that instructional videos and the pdf cutting instructions never go away, so you can pop back any time and have a look. Pop over to Facebook and join up you will not be sorry.

Bye for now,

Kris
