it's a sunny, warm day in Germany and I'm here to share some warm and bright card with you, that our Guest Designer Julia Altermann from Just One More Card created.
Here's what she has for you:
I wanted to show that that sometimes the "accessory" stamps can be the star of the show.
- Stamp on a single piece of paper which is 4.25x5.5”.
- In order to line up your stamp each time perfectly, use a stamp press or put some grid paper underneath your card base – that will make it much easier. Don’t forget to clean your stamps really well so you won’t have residues of the previous color when you stamp again.
- To create the layered effect on the card front, leave 1/3 of the front intact and cut off the rest. Then adhere the stamped panel (4.25x5.5”) to the inside of the front panel – it looks like it’s one piece, but isn’t. ;)
- Stamp your sentiment on the top part of the card and then use embellishments to your heart’s content – I always use sequins by Pretty Pink Posh and this time, I even inlaid them with some seed beads.
If you want to create a rainbow or hombre effect with your stamp colors, take out all the ink pads you will need ahead of time and arrange them in the order you will need them. Ink swatches can be a huge help to find the correct colors. If you find that your card doesn't have enough contrast, try layering a strip of card stock that has a very intense color between the white and the colored part. And to balance out the card, little embellishments can go a long way.
