I’m over at the Neat & Tangled blog today to share a card that uses the whimsical images from a couple of stamp sets combined with the versatile sentiments from another. This is such a fun way to truly stretch your stamps!
I began by stamping the macarons and the teacups from Paris with a pale blue pigment ink straight onto a white card base. I then stamped the Eiffel Tower image and some of the smaller images from Dala Horse with black dye ink for a bit of contrast.
I also flicked some Tarnished Brass Distress Stain over the card base for some interest.
I die-cut the embroidery hoops using the Hoop die first from some dark brown pattern paper, and then from some kraft cardstock for stability. I adhered the two pieces together to create a thicker embellishment and then adhered that onto the card front around the Eiffel Tower, trimming off the excess.
For the sentiment, I turned to another versatile stamp set – Winter Wishes. I partially stamped a sentiment with black dye ink onto some scrap pattern paper and then trimmed into two strips before foam mounting to the card.
To finish, I embellished with a few sequins from the Mermaid Tail mix.
I hope you’ll have a go at combining stamp sets that you own to see how far you can stretch them!
Thanks for stopping by 😉
