It's Simone here and today I thought I'd share with you a couple of cards I made in practice for the upcoming Stretch Your Stamps online card class.
To "stretch" my stamps I decided to use the same stamp set to create two different cards. One a masculine card, and the other a feminine card. Here is what I came up with:
For my masculine card I chose to use the thanks flower stamp from the Untitled Love stamp set by Hero Arts. I love there new Art of the Card line. Such gorgeous designs.
To create this card I simply stamped the thanks stamp a number of time onto some snow layering paper using three different mid-tone shadow ink colours, Stone Wash, Cup O' Joe and Pool. I then cut the images out and adhered them in a pyramid style to my card base, using adhesive foam only on my very last (top) piece. To finish off the card I added some Hero Arts Hero Hues Dots for embellishment.
Next up, I used some other stamps in the same set and some different coloured shadow inks to create a whole new look, and something more girly :)
To create this card I stamped the Hello and Love stamps using the Butter Bar and Bubble Gum mid-tone shadow inks, directly onto my card base. I then added some Hero Hues Dots again as well as some yellow designer twine.
These stamp sets are so versatile and fun to play with, you can create many different looks with them. I could even swap the colours around of both and have a feminine Thanks card and a cute Hello Love card perfect for a guy!
I hope this inspires you to use your stamp sets in more ways than one?! I can't wait for the fun online card class to start. For more information, click here.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day :)
