Today I am sharing a few cards from this week’s Facebook Live, where I made Thank you cards. From Art Gallery to Snowflake Wishes, I created them all using the Stamparatus.
This week’s Facebook Live had me share the creation of my Thank you cards. I like to make a batch using Stampin’ Up!’s Image positioning tool, the Stamparatus. This tool is your best friend when making a batch of cards up using a repeated layout.
I showed how to set the rotating plates up, two plates, four sides, ink and use second generation stamping. These were the cards that I created on mass using Snowflake Wishes … a gorgeous stamp set.
The sentiment was stamped using Night of Navy but the rest wss stamped using Seaside Spray. By using second generation stamping, I was able to create snowflakes of the same colour, in different depths of that colour.
By setting up a template of where to stamp the sentiment, I was able to punch this out and raise it up on Dimensionals. This took an otherwise flat card, into something offering more interest. The shimmer from the ribbon added some subtle glimmer and the Winter Snow embossing fold, greater texture.
This sentiment is a fabulous play on words and made me smile.
Moving away from Christmas, I decided to break into something new. Art Gallery is a wonderful stamp set from the new, soon to launch, Mini Catalogue. This launches on 4th January and has some gorgeous new product in. If you’d like to see a copy of this catalogue, then do get in contact with me.
I inked these images up using our Stampin’ Write Markers. This allowed me to use multi colours for the flowers, colouring in the leaves green and the flowers in other shades. The Subtle Embossing Folder added texture that resembles a fabric kind of feel.
Spritzing the image with water, helps to create a subtle watercolour feel. By rotating the cardstock, I repeated the stamping and added a sentiment to the middle with some twine.
The Poppy Parade ink really added a pop of colour to these cards. Not used anywhere else in these cards, it really helped it to stand out.
I made a few other cards during this Live broadcast but I felt I’d share just these with you here. If you’d like to see the recording, you can still find it over on my Facebook Page HERE.
