While I'm away having a fun weekend with my daughter, I thought I'd share a few more examples from the card classes I took from the owner/designer of Savvy Stamps.
Here's a new idea I learned. Instead of adhering the stamped frame, we punched the frame and the card base and then tied it on with Baker's Twine. I think this is a fun, interesting twist.
Both cards are stamped with a striped background stamp. As you can see, I haven't masters the inking or the positioning of this large stamp. Hmmmmm, must be why I love patterned paper so much! I learned another technique with the banner on this second card. It's called "kissing." We inked up the banner stamp (yes, it is a stamp, not just cut paper) and then pressed the tree stamp onto the inked banner stamp thus removing some of the ink and leaving the tree image. Then the banner stamp, with the kissed image, was stamped on the cardstock. I love the way this looks.
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. You can bet I'm enjoying my time with my daughter.
Hugs and Happy Crafting,
