If you watched my Meet the Stamparatus Stamp Positioner video, you saw me stamp a few different images with that amazing new tool. Well, I finally finished a couple cards with those. Since I’m always curious about how stampers use the images I see them stamp in videos, I figured you might be, too. So here they are!
Card 1 – Graduation Card
For this first card, I combined the suitcase stack image (Going Far) and ‘Hinge Stamping’ border (Bubble Over) to make a graduation card. Since my daughter and her friends graduate in June, I figured I’d better start their cards and gifts now. Life can get unexpectedly crazy around here sometimes, so better safe than sorry, right?
To start, I layered the border onto a piece of confetti paper from the Picture Perfect Party stack (Occasions 2018). Although I didn’t have this paper in mind when stamping the images, it’s a perfect match!
Next, I ‘fussy cut’ the suitcase stack image, and colored it with blender pens and ink pads to match the colors in the border (Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist).Then I attached it to the paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Although it’s a little hard to see in the photo, I also drew a half shadow along the left side of each “Yay!” stamp, with a Pool Party marker.
To finish this card, I layered the image / patterned paper panel onto Basic Black cardstock, and then onto a Berry Burst card base. The little ribbon accent is just scraps from other projects, folded in half and topped with a Berry Burst glitter enamel dot.
Card 2 – Thank You Card
With the two-step sunflower image and sentiment (Painted Harvest), I made this simple thank you card. As you can see, I added some leaves to the sunflower, after masking it off. My husband may love my purple sunflowers, but I’m more fond of these, made with Pink Pirouette, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, and Garden Green inks.
To make this card, I backed the image piece with gold foil paper, and then layered it onto a Pink Pirouette card base. Then I just added a slim gold banner to accent the sentiment, and a few glitter enamel dots to tie it all together.
Here are links to all of the current Stampin’ Up! products that I used to make these two cards, excluding the Stamparatus, which will be available starting June 1, 2018.
