Enjoy Creativity

Now that it’s a new year, hopefully we can all spend a little more time doing what we love: stamping! Whether you want to keep your projects simple or step them up, here are three cards created using the Sale-A-Bration Thanks a Bunch Stamp Set will help you get back into the stamping spirit.

CASUAL
Keep it casual by simply stamping some carrots and leaves on a piece of white cardstock.  Add a few polka dots and accent with a die cut sentiment.

AVID
Take the card up a level by stamping and cutting out some carrots and leaves.  Then stamp and heat boss some polka dots.  You can either do that with the carrots stuck down, or, why not stamp and emboss and then using some  Stampin’ Dimensionals pop up the carrots, being sure to line them up with the dots. For some added effect, add a few Classic Matte Dots as a simple embellishment.

ARTFULLY AVID
Step it up even more with the third card. First, blend the Dots & Spots panel with Calypso Coral ink and splattered that and the carrots with water to give them a watercolour look. Then instead of stamping out the accents on the carrots, heat embossed them with gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder for an extra shine. Next, stamp out the carrot leaves, stamping them off a few times to make a few leaves a bit lighter. Fussy cut the leaves and crumpled them a bit before attaching them to the carrots. To finish off, untwist some gold Simply Elegant Trim, and using the frayed pieces tie a few bows before adhering them to the tops of the carrots.

 

Now, do you see what I see?

Thank you for visiting, and if you have shopped with me, I really do appreciate it.

Best wishes & happy creating
