Simply Stamps | One Stamp 4 Ways | Part 2

Hi and welcome! Today I have a series post for SimplyStamps.com called One Stamp 4 ways in which I use one stamp set from the Simply Stamp site and use it in four different cards, with four different techniques. 

The stamp set I selected for today's series is called Happy Thanksgiving Daisies Craft Stamp.





This second project is simply stamping! With the use of 4 ink colors I used the smaller of the daisies to create a floral background. 



To start, trim your black card mat to fit over  your card base. Next trimming a white piece of card stock to be 1 cm smaller than the black mat. Proceed to stamp your flowers in each ink color. allowing for some time to dry in between 




Using a smaller piece of black cardstock heat emboss in white the sentiment. In this case, its the word "thanks" from a previous design your own stamp also from Simply Stamp.com 

To finish the card using foam adhesive place your sentiment in the center and voila!

I did create a video as I made this card. You can view it below. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

To create the focal point I used the Scallop Circles Dies The lilies are slightly colored using gold watercolors and splatters of the same on rest of the card. 
For my second project, I could not resist coloring the adorable bunny people from the Easter Friends Stamp Set!
Using the Stitched Notes Dies from the March release, I created my border and main background. With watercolors, I colored a Spring sky and very green grass. 
The little cuties are colored with Copics and placed on the base of the card with foam adhesive.

Simply Stamps | One Stamp 4 Ways| Part 1

Hi and welcome! Today I have a series post for SimplyStamps.com called One Stamp 4 ways in which I use one stamp set from the Simply Stamp site and use it in four different cards, with four different techniques. 

The stamp set I selected for today's series is called Happy Thanksgiving Daisies Craft Stamp.


I made this first card without a sentiment as I would like to make a set of them for gifts or to just add the appropriate sentiment at a later time.


To make this card, I started by first trimming my rubber stamp from the block and separating the two clumps of daisies. Next, with the Big Shot die cutting machine, I die cut a white piece of card stock to have the scalloped edging. Then using white embossing powder I stamped the images in embossing ink and heat set. Once that had cooled off, I used distress inks to color the background.

The white embossing resists the ink color and creates a fun effect. To finish off, I adhered the design to a white card base.  Now the card is ready for sentiment and/or embellishment.

I have created a video while making this card. Hope you enjoy!
