Good morning! I’m back with another Stamp Study installment! I originally got the idea from the fabulous Virginia Lu and though I *ahem* go months between posts I truly love finding ways to use a single stamp set in many different ways. Sometimes a stamp set just grabs me and I can’t stop making cards! I literally had only 35 minutes to craft a few days ago or there would have been many, many more. So anyway, the set for this study is the new You’re My Person stamp set from Concord & 9th. I already have (and ADORE) the Wildflower set (see yesterday’s post…) which is like the big sister set to You’re My Person. But this tinier version is so cute! 4 CAS cards…who would have believed it! 😉
For the first card I simply stamped the floral outline on a piece of white cardstock and then used a variety of inks to stamp the solid image inside the outline. The solid images are super easy to line up within the outlined images. Once it was totally dry I stamped the sentiment with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. To finish the card I added a sprinkling of clear sequins. Isn’t that sentiment appropriate?! 😉
My next card was actually the last one I made. I stamped the flowers and intended to color all of them with copics but I ran out of time so I decided to selectively color just a few and add gems to the center of the largest flowers. I stamped the sentiment with versamark, heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder, fussy cut it, and adhered it with foam mounting tape. Another fantastic sentiment and much needed these days…
My next card was a bit of a mistake but I’m sharing it anyway. I stamped the flowers on watercolor paper and watercolored it with my Mission Gold watercolors. However I’ve been lazy and haven’t made a swatch chart yet so I mistook one of the colors and used that bright orange instead of the pink I thought I was reaching for. But it does look like my first attempt at gardening where I didn’t consider any of my color choices and it ended up kinda looking a hot mess! 😉 Anyway, once it was dry I die-cut the sentiment and mounted the watercolor panel on a black card panel so that the sentiment would stand out. I trimmed it down, added a few clear sequins, and adhered it to a white card base.
Finally, I had the die-cut letters from the previous card so I decided to use them! While they were still in the die I added glossy accents to the back and then flipped the die onto a piece of black cardstock and poked the cardstock through the holes in the die to encourage them to stick to the cardstock. I removed the die and made sure they were all lined up correctly. It looked a little plain so I took a piece of white cardstock and stamped the floral design all around the edge before adhering the black sentiment panel.
So there you have it! My first four cards using that stamp set fresh out of my mailbox! I’m sure you’ll see it again soon! 😉 Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful day!
