Hello, everyone! And welcome to STAMPtember(R)! Are you excited? I know I am! All the new dies, new stamps, new card blanks! Woot-woot! STAMPtember(R) is the most awesome time of the year. If this is your first time hearing about STAMPtember(R) here’s a little explanation from Simon: an event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Doesn’t this sound fun? Lets get inky!

I am so excited to join the celebration! I have been busy stamping and die cutting for the past couple of days and I have lots of cards to share with you over the next few weeks. Today I’d like to share a video using one of my favorite stamps from the STAMPtember(R) release – Basic Stripes.

CARD DETAILS

I didn’t want to mount the stripe stamp straight onto my clear block and ended up giving it a bit of a curve for a fun and unexpected look. Love the way it turned out. I used 3 colors of ink to do my stamping – Twirling Tutu (lightest color), Teeny Bikini (medium color) and Hollyhock (darkest color). I stamped each stripe twice for a more vibrant look and also to give it a bit of an imperfection, I didn’t use misti stamping tool, but eyeballed my stamping and therefore was able to have that a bit of an imperfect stamping. My stamped stripes look like they’ve actually been painted onto the front of my card.

I also used feather stamps and dies as well as the Smile sentiment from the My Friend stamp set to stamp a few additional elements for this card. I used Duckling, Catkin and Scuba colors as well as a very pretty Stone ink.

I also used a few self-adhesive sequins from the Crate Paper’s Wonder Collection and added those onto my card for a pop of gold. The sentiment and some of the feathers were foam mounted for a bit of dimension. I also rounded the two bottom corners of this card using my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.

    1. What a great idea to curve the stripes! And adhesive backed sequins??!! Awesome!

    1. Yana, great idea to use with hombre look. I still think you could have used the Misti and gotten similar results. Great looking cards.

    1. Genius design!! The stripe background is fabulous and the perfect background to showcase the pretty feathers. Absolutely love your choice in colors.

    1. Yana, please make a card with the Maple Leaf corner die…mI am very curious to see what you’d do with it… ☺️

    1. Beautiful colors. Hard to pick a favorite after seeing so many fabulous creations.
