This will be the first of several posts sharing some projects I’ve made using some of the brand new Stampin’ Up products, I hope they inspire you!
For my first card (shown above) is used the adorable Life in the Forest stamp set, I love woodland animals so this is one of my favorite sets! On blue cardstock I randomly stamped the stars from the Project Life Point and Click clear stamp set and layered it onto rust cardstock on a teal card base. I stamped the trees onto one of the pattern papers from the All Abloom paper set and cut out the tops, layering them onto brown cardstock for the trunks. I also used the same pattern paper for my hills, cutting a wave shaped and adhering them all to the star paper. On white cardstock I used black Memento Ink and stamped the fox and hedgehog stamps, coloring them with the new Blendabilities alcohol based markers. To give some “texture” to the colored hedgehog I used the Color Lifter marker to lighten and remove some of the marker color.
For my next card I used the fun new Circle Card Die which makes a neat fold out card that flips in the center. I die cut the base in white and also again in two pattern papers from the All Abloom pattern papers, adhering those to the front of the card. I die cut the scalloped circle using another All Abloom paper, adding that to the center circle of the card. I stamped the cupcake base, top and candle from the Cupcake Party stamp set in different inks colors, cut and layered them in the center with foam dots. Then I stamped the sentiment in black ink on the front. It’s such a cool dimensional card!
For my last card I used the new Traveler stamp set, which is perfect for masculine cards! On a red cardstock based I layered a piece of pattern paper from the Maritime paper set and then I stamped the boat in blue ink on white cardstock and layered it onto a piece of red and adhered that to the front of my card, adding a metal paper clip from the Everyday Adventure Project Life Accessory Pack. Then I stamped the trunk and passport in red, cut them out and adhered them to my card with foam dots.
