The part about designing that I love the most is getting to ‘play’ with stamp sets to see just what I can do with them. These two lovely cards didn’t make the cut as a make-n-take at my Open House. Although I really like them, I really wanted to use some of the new ruffled ribbon on the make-n-take. My order with the ribbon hadn’t arrived at my door yet. I’ll post the end result in a few days. :)
On both of these cards, I ran a layer of Lucky Limeade through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing folder. On a Whisper White layer, I randomly stamped the outline of the flower images from the Two-Step stamping Hostess set, Simply Soft, in Jet Black StazOn. Then, I went back over the random stampings with the ‘filler’ image (one using Calypso Coral and the other Daffodil Delight). The sentiments are from the Swirls & Curls Verses set (another lovely Hostess set – which I think I will use quite often). I finished by sponging some Lucky Limeade ink in a circular motion over top of the image. It just gives it a nice background for the image to ‘sit’ on.
These Two-step stamp sets are so easy to use. I have something in mind for another time already. Gotta love it! I hope you found some inspiration today. Give a two-step stamp a second look :) Thanks for stopping by today.
