We are revealing 6 more very unique and fabulous stamp sets and 5 Coordinating Dies today!
These sets are so versatile, you could use them for masculine cards, father’s day cards, for people in armed forces, for surfers or beach lover people, beer lovers, etc! I see myself creating many cards for my friends and family with these sets, including some pun intended cards using the witty sentiments! I created 4 cards today and I’m super excited to share them with you! 🙂
Here’s the first card! I created this card using our new Beer 6×8 clear stamp set and I just think it’s absolutely a fun and unique set! 🙂
I stamped all the layer stamps from our new Beer stamp set on a A2 sized white smooth cardstock. The inks I used are: Beach Blondie, Amber Citrine, Spiced Chai, Crystal Pewter, Smoky Quartz, and Vanilla Cupcake Dye ink. It was very easy to layer them. I stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye ink. I think the sentiment is hilarious and couldn’t resist to use it on this project! Then I trimmed the side of the panel with the trimmer and heat embossed the edges in gold to add interest.
I created the background panel with the Minor Stripes Background Cling stamp on black cardstock. I stamped in Versamark, heat embossed in gold, and die cut using the largest layer from the (Large) Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the background panel on a A2 black card base and popped up the main panel on top with the black fun foam. I finished the card by adding some Matte Gold, Shotgun Gray sequins, and some from the Black Tie Affair Couture Mix.
For the second card for today, I combined our new Eagle 4×6 clear and Mountains 6×8 clear stamp sets in one card. These sets go perfectly together or individually. They are also very versatile and could be used for many different occasions.
I started the card by layer stamping the eagle image from our new Eagle image on a smooth white cardstock. The ink colors I used are: Found Topaz/Aspen Cocoa/Dark Roast (for the body), Crystal Pewter/Beach Blondie/Noir (for the head), Crystal Pewter/Smoky Quartz (for the tail), and Amber Citrine/Found Topaz/Noir (for the foot & claw). After I was done with all the stamping, I fussy cut the image. I didn’t have the Coordinating die at the moment, but it would’ve saved me a lot of time if I did!
Then I moved on the the background. I created this cool mountain background by stamping all the layers from our new Mointains stamp set in our Smoky Quartz, Aspen Cocoa, Dark Roast, and the Noir Dye ink. I also stamped the sentiment from the Eagle stamp set on the panel in Noir Dye ink. I adhered this panel on a white A2 cardbase.
I created a golden rectangle frame with the Glossy Fine Gold Adhesive paper and popped it up on the card with the foam tape. I also popped up the eagle on the card and finished the card by adding some sequins from the Black Tie Affair Couture Mix.
For the third project, I’m featuring our new Wave 6×8 clear stamp set. This set is undeniably unique and amazing! As you stamp the each layers, the incredible surf wave comes alive in front of your eyes! This card makes me miss the summer beach so much!
It was so easy, simple, and quick to make! I see myself mass producing this card using my MISTI tool in the near future. 🙂 I started the card by stamping each layer in our Couture Color Dye inks on a smooth white cardstock. The ink colors I used are: Cali Blue, Azurite, and True Navy Dye ink. After stamping all the layers of the wave, I stamped the sentiment (borrowed from our new Fresh Cut Anemone Coord. Outlines set – revealed on Day1) in our Noir Dye ink. Then I die cut the panel using the largest layer from the (Small) Double Stitch Rectangle Dies. I made a background panel using the Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive paper and the largest layer from the (Large) Double Stitch Rectangle Dies. I adhered the background panel on the A2 sized white card base then popped the main panel on the card using the white fun foam. I finished the card by adding some Glass Slippers sequins and the Mercedes Blue sequins.
Last project for Day 2! For this card, I used one of our incentive stamp set, the Watercolor Bouquet 3×4 clear stamp set. My attempt was to create a masculine card with a floral image, but I’ll let you be the judge if I succeeded! 🙂
I started the card by stamping the image from the Watercolor Bouquet stamp set on a A2 sized smooth white cardstock in our Noir Dye ink. I quickly stamped the image repeatedly using the mini MISTI tool and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I colored the image with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in flicking motion. The Zig marker colors I used are: Blue 030, Cobalt Blue 031, Light Green 041, and Deep Green 044.
I stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye ink. Then I drew in the frame with journaling pen and T-ruler and colored around the frame with Gray Brown 094 Zig Marker to add the depth. When it was all good and dry, I splattered some blue ink all over the panel. I also smudged the silver ink around the panel. Right before I was about to adhere the panel on the card base, I realized that my panel was bit shorter than A2. So I added some Silver Burnished foil tape on the top & bottom of the white A2 card base and adhered the main panel. I adhered some Silver Dew Drops & Clear Mix Dew Drops and card was done!
