Stamping: One Technique – 2 Cards

Hey everyone, it’s Raquel back here with you today sharing 2 cards that I have created featuring the technique of stamping. Of course I had to use the new Turn the Page collection and the layering stamps that are part of it. My intention and purpose for these cards today were to create a best wishes/good luck style card. They could be given to someone who was starting something new in their life; whether it was a new job, travel, a new house etc. Here are the cards that I created:

For my stamping today I decided to use the same technique for both cards, however, use the stamped images a different way on each. To create the stamped floral images I first selected the base flower and stamped that with the lightest colour ink. I then stamped the accented floral with a darker complementary colour. This makes the finished product look quite dimensional and gives it a nice depth.

I love the Turn the Page stamp set as it has a lot of different options of icons that could be layered, there are florals, like the image below, butterflies, hearts, stars, and even leaves. So much variety in a small set!

Here is the process video for how these two cards came together:

For the first card I decided to use the above technique of layering the floral stamps to create a background paper. I chose three sets of colour combinations and randomly stamped them onto a piece of white cardstock. There were some gaps that looked a little too bare on my handmade patterned paper so I added in some soft grey accents of leaves throughout. I love how this softened the bold pattern a little.

Once I had my base complete I added a small strip of Paper 18 and the title fussy cut from Paper 21. All of the sentiments on Paper 21 are the perfect size for cards. I added some fussy cut butterflies from Paper 04 to the page to give the card a multi dimensional look.

It has been awhile since I have added ribbon to a paper crafting project. The machine stitching to the edge of the paper and the small banner of mint ribbon from the ribbon pack was the perfect finishing touch. It added a beautiful textural element to the card.

For my second card I wanted to use the same technique of stamping the layered florals, but this time I wanted to fussy cut them out and use them as an embellishment. When I make sets of cards using Pink Paislee products I love to keep the cards coordinating by using the same colour palette and repeat the style of embellishments. In this card I used Paper 18 as the base. And topped that with a die cut frame and floral from the ephemera pack. Of course I had to layer a doily underneath this too!

To embellish the card I layered the stamped florals on either side of the central embellishment cluster. The green and yellow images I adhered directly to the page and the pink one was adhered with thin foam tape. I love the multi-dimensional look this gives.

This card shows how much I love to add a bit of dimension under my embellishments. It helps give the card so much more detail and definition. I added again some textural pieces to the card; machine stitching and the fishtail banners made from the mint ribbon from the ribbon pack.
