Charmaine here with an effortless technique to make many cards with the same stamp set. Just change a few card elements to create unique and stunning masterpieces.
I am using the beautiful Happy Sentiments TCW 2207 designed by Valentina Harper 4 x 6 stamp set with gorgeous intricate flowers.
TCW provided me with some awesome goodies to play with, but the opinions and creations are my own.
All three cards started the same way; One stamp, Versamark Watermark stamp pad, embossing powder, and heavy cardstock. I played with “metals’ today: silver, gold, and copper embossing powders.
Next, I let each card have its own personality. The gold card was fun to make! I cut along the bottom flowers to create a border. Then I fussy cut the remaining flowers and placed double-sided foam under all of them. I used a pierced plate to create the pattern on the white base.
I finished the card by placing a “friend’ sentiment, created by a metal die and is three levels deep, across the flowers.
My next card is similar but has a circle element on the bottom. I used a circle die and then cut the leaves (that were cut out) and glued them over the existing leaves. The acetate underneath has silver lines that give the card extra shine.
The last card has a folksy vibe with the Kraft and Copper coloring.
I again use a pierced plate for the cris-cross pattern after I embossed the flowers. Next time I’ll stamp the sentiment before I use the plate for a better stamp impression. I added Liquid Pearls for the centers and colored the petals with a white Posca Pen.
I hope you liked today’s technique and will leave me a comment on the blog. I so appreciate your feedback!
Until next time,
