Hi There. I’m back again with a few more cards I made with another stamp set from Spellbinders. This stamp set is called “Just For You” but you will notice that some of the sentiments are from “Floral Love” since I loved the other stamp set so much. These cards use a few different techniques and Spellbinders dies. I hope you enjoy the ideas.
My first card is a repeat background stamping technique with ombre inks. I simply took the leafy flower stamp and stamped it in different directions all over the card stock and then trimmed the card stock to fit a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card. I trimmed the sides a little bit so the green card stock would show on the edges. The green card stock in the background is “Asparagus” by Gina K.
For the sentiment I stamped the Just For You sentiment and die cut with a circle die. Then adhered it with foam squares for a little dimension.
For my second card, I used the same image as before and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder for a subtle background. Then I die cut white flowers and green leaves with the Shapeabilities Woodland Wreath Etched dies. I layered them and colored the flowers with my copies.
For my third card, I looked at my stash of stencils and picked something with lines, so the card would come nicely together. If you didn’t have a stencil, you could cut small strips of masking paper and adhere them in different directions on your card stock and then blend ink ontop of that. Then you remove the mask and you’re done.
After blending my background with Catherine Pooler Inks, I stamped out my arrows and my hearts. For the background I used the Shapeabilities Symmetry in Space Kaleidoscope by Lene Lok Etched Die.
My next card was very simple. I stamped the heart four times and fussy cut it. Then I stamped the heart a couple of more times in green. After fussy cutting that, I cut the hearts in half.
After looking thru my stash of dies, I die cut another background with the Shapeabilities Decagon View Kaleidoscope by Lene Lok Etched dies.
I decided to keep the middle part of the die cut but prop it up with foam squares and put my sentiment on it. Then I adhered the hearts in the form of a flower and used the half hearts as leaves for my flower. I wanted the card to have a lot of white to give it a simple but geometric feel.
Now to my last and probably most simple card. I decided to repeat stamp the feather on my background but use some of my favorite ink colors by Catherine Pooler.(Affiliated link at NO additional cost to you). After wetting my stamp with the lightest color first, I touched the side of the stamp in a darker shade of the same color to give it these dark edges. I used the sentiment from the Floral Love stamp set that I wrote about yesterday. If you missed that post, you can get to it from here.
I hope you enjoyed these ideas and can apply them to some of the stamps you already own. By the way, these stamps are at a great price point if you are interested in purchasing any of them. Here is where you can check them out.
