Versatile Stamp Set!
What makes a versatile stamp set? For me, a stamp set is versatile if it can be used for a variety of occasions. The new Sprinkles of Life is one of those stamp sets – VERY versatile!
The base of this card is the new Mint Macaron which is one of the new 2015-2017 In Colors – isn’t it pretty? The ice cream scoops and cone are stamped on Shimmer White cardstock (watercolor paper would work too) in Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Chocolate Chip and Watermelon Wonder. I then used an Aquapainter to add more of the same color. This method will slightly lighten and blue the outlines but I like that effect for this card. I used Crystal Effects to add some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the ice cream scoops which are punched out with the coordinating Tree Builder Punch. You have to trim the cone with scissors but it’s a pretty easy trim. I layered all the pieces with Glue Dots to Shimmery White cardstock and then added to Chocolate Chip cardstock. Dimensionals are used to layer to the front of the card. The greeting was stamped with Chocolate Chip on Mint Macaron cardstock and die-cut with the Banners Framelits.
This card used the same ice cream scoop image to create clouds! I stamped them in Versamark on Shimmery White cardstock (yes, it’s my favorite!) and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. The raindrops are punched from colored cardstock: Pacific Point, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Real Red. I added them to the Shimmery White cardstock with Glue Dots and then added Crystal Effects on top to give them the look of raindrops. Crystal Effects will take 20-30 minutes to dry so be sure to set aside someplace safe (coming from someone with 2 nosy cats!).
Here’s a picture of this versatile stamp set and coordinating punch, both available June 2nd!
Just look at all the different images and greetings – 22 stamps for only $21!!! Here’s one more card that was a make-n-take at my team meeting this month:
The background is Watermelon Wonder cardstock embossed with the new Boho Chic Embossing Folder. The paper banners are from the new “Cherry on Top” Designer Series Paper Stack and the notches on the end are created with the new Triple Banner Punch. I stamped the cupcake pieces in Crushed Curry and Tempting Turquoise on Whisper White cardstock and then sponed with the same colors.
