I've seen many gorgeous cards created with this technique all over the web and they all look so different! I've wanted to try it for quite some time now and finally made one thanks to a fellow Demo, Laurie Reaume, who I had the pleasure of meeting at the Hamilton Regionals. She swapped with me and her swap used this technique. You can check out her card here.
|Paper: Lucky Limeade, Whisper White|
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Perfect Plum, Riding Hood Red, Lucky Limeade, Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Quint-Essential Flower
Accessories: Button, Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon, Jewels
Unlike other cards I've seen with this technique, I wanted some more dimension, so I decided to pop-up and layer my focal image and then add a button to the center. The Quint-Essential Flower Á La Carte Stamp was the perfect choice to accomplish this. Many of SU! punches coordinate perfectly with this stamp so that you can do as much, or as little layering as you please.
The following SU! punches work with this stamp set:
- 2-3/8" Scallop Circle
- 1-3/4" Scallop Circle
- 1" Circle
- 3/4" Circle
- 1/2" Circle
What do you think?
Until next time, stay crafty!
