Going Monochrome with the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

If you’ve just started on your cardmaking journey, it may be that you have a limited choice of supplies.

My cards today show that you can still create beautiful card designs with just a couple of inks.

I used the Free Textures & Frames stamp set, with a favourite set of mine from the annual catalogue…. Positive Thoughts.

I decided to use Very Vanilla cardstock for a vintage look. I think it looks great with both the Merry Merlot and Night of Navy variations.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

I love how these cards turned out…. Do you have a favourite?

Here’s a close up of the original sample!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Shaded Summer Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

We are into the last few days of Sale-a-bration so I wanted to use the Summer Shadows dies again.

This time I’m using them alongside the metallic speciality papers and the Encircled in Beauty dies.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…..

The coloured embossing worked out so well. It really helped to keep the coordinated look of the original black and gold design.

The different colour ways give the cards a completely different feel!

The black and gold is very striking and the gold shimmer ribbon looks fabulous!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

This is an interesting combination and yellow isn’t a colour I use a lot.

I picked out the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set and teamed that with a sentiment from the In Symmetry stamp set.

Customising your white ribbons by colouring them with Stampin’ Blends or Classic ink extends there flexibility.

Some Wink of Stella adds some subtle shimmer to the project too!

Creating with the Textures and Frames Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

I’m finally inking up this stamp set today…. You can choose this as a free item during the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration promotion that runs until 30th September!

This set is right up my street, simple to use background builders are always high on my list to add to my stash! Doesn’t go well with the Biggest Wish set (another favourite of mine).

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The sentiment combination was changed around in the two samples to give a different look…

The Subtles are in use with this sample which makes the black sentiment pop. The matte black dots tie the design together…

I hope you enjoyed this project.

I have chosen to work with the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper. This is one of the fabulous papers you can earn during Sale-a-bration! This coordinates with the Hand Penned Petals Suite in the Annual Catalogue too!

I put this with the Biggest Wish stamp set which is great versatile set for beginner cardmakers!

You can see how I made these cards in my video tutorial….

I picked out three different ribbons to compliment the cards. Of course you don’t NEED to use all three, but this shows you some options. I kept it simple by tying knots rather than bows.

Whilst the black and white, monochromatic look suits the paper, just look what happens when you introduce a coloured card base!

This is Melon Mambo….

And these are Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green. All are in the Brights colour family.

Here are the cards I make in my video ….
