Hello Everyone!!! I am so excited to be sharing not one, but two cards with you today!! On both cards I have incorporated some new release products from Inspired by Stamping as well as a few older products that you may already have in your stash. I would HIGHLY suggest taking a peek over on the IBS Website, there are so many fabulous stamp sets at incredible prices. Best of all, if you spend over $50 you not only get free shipping, but a free set too!! But first, be sure and watch the video tutorial below of how I put together the layered flip flop shaker card and then read below to see a few pictures and details on my second sepia inspired card!
For the full details on the layered flip flop card be sure and watch the video tutorial above. Here are a few photos of the card. I have to say that I love the way it turned out, but on another note, can you spot the flip flop I forgot to layer LOL!!!
There are so many ways to use the new stamp & die sets from IBS’s July Release. Today, I used the new Happy Stamp & Die Set on both cards! The first card was a more fun and bright, while the second (which you will see in a moment), is more classic. On a side note, I also used the same “Summer Fun” on another card for the new release which you can find HERE!
For the next card, I brought out the brand new “Summer Bouquet” stamp set. If I have to say flower bouquets are a specialty of the Inspired by Stamping sets! This set is absolutely gorgeous and I wanted to try and use my Prismacolor Colored Pencils to create a sepia toned bouquet. I also did my heat embossing with the Liquid Platinum embossing power for Ranger for a more vintage look!
The coloring did take quite awhile, so I sat and colored in front of a movie, which is why I don’t have a video tutorial for this card, but I do want to video this coloring technique because I LOVE the way it turned out. I used a lot of the French & Warm Grays from my Prismacolors as well as quite a few browns. Also, I did colored on a piece of cream cardstock that I had die cut beforehand for a more vintage look. If you wanted to take this coloring one step further, you could distress the edges as well!
To complete the card I used the same Happy Stamp and Die Set that was just released this month. I die cut the Happy die several times from black card stock and also from cream. After layering them up and adhereing them together to create a chipboard effect I die cut a piece of black card stock with the Fancy Labels 3 Die Set which I stamped the word “Wedding” onto from the Happy Stamp Set. I did use Versamark Ink and heat embossed in the same Liquid Platinum embossing powder. After adhereing a piece of patterned paper in a wonky fashion onto a cream card A2 top folding card base I adhered the die cut panel in the center with fun foam and double sided adhesive.
I hope you all enjoyed todays video tutorial and the second bonus card as well! They were both so much to create and I always love mixing and matching different stamp and die sets to create two completely different cards with two different esthetics! It truly shows how versatile any stamps & dies can be!!
