One of my favorite things to do with stamp sets that I love is to randomly stamp images from stamp sets to create my own unique background paper. That’s exactly what I did for today’s post. I used most of the images from the now retired Nailed It stamp set to create the background. I colored all the images with my Copic markers and then added the washer and sentiment using the coordinating Builder Framelits (also retired) from Stampin Up. The best part about doing a card this way is no two are alike!!
I brought the look of the outdoors inside with these natural, rustic patterns in the Wood Textures DSP papet stack from Stampin Up #144177. So many designs, so many colors, so many uses. Fronts and backs are similar grains and colors for ideal use in die cutting. I combined 2 patterns for todays card and embossed the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons #143726 stampset to create the sign.
Today’s post is another all purpose card using the Stampin Up High Tide #143006 stamp set. This card is gorgeous and one of Cammies exclusive brayered designs and a tribute card to her retirement in Galveston TX from Tulsa. I think she will get used to her new way of life!
It has been a long time since I created a single layer card with nothing but stamping and ink. No embellishments and no framelits just back to the basics for me. To complete the task, I used the High Tide #143006 stamp set to make cards for my son to have on hand. Completing this card reminded me of why I took up stamping to begin with! Beautiful images can be created with just stamps and ink. I was so happy with how it turned out that I have made so many other cards with this set that will post in the days to come.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads. To commemorate the day, I made a masculine card for my son to give to his dad. Really it was an excuse to by this adorable Nailed It stamp set and coordinating Build It Framelits from Stampin Up that are no longer available from Stampin Up. The background paper is from the Warmth and Cheer DSP collection that is also retired.
Today’s post features some retired Stampin Up products including the Maritime DSP, the Open Sea stamp set and the Advemture Awaits stamp set.
