Hello, I hope you are well.
I’m using a brand new stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue that launches on 4 May 2021; it’s called Color & Contour.
It’s a beautiful floral set with gorgeous sentiments and here’s the result of my first play with it…
Aren’t these images pretty? This stamp set coordinates with a new set of dies called Scalloped Contours but I wanted to show you what you can do with just the stamps, 2 ink pads and some Basic White card.
To make this card I used the following
- Basic White thick card measuring 10.5 x 29 cm. scored and folded at 14.5 cm to create a tent fold card base
- Basic White card to measuring 9.5 x 13.5 cm, stamped randomly with the flower outline using Highland Heather ink and then the dots stamp with the same ink
- Basic White card measuring 5 x 9 cm, stamped with the floral stem image using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then with the infill stamp using Highland Heather ink
- Basic White card measuring 4 x 3 cm stamped with the sentiment using Memento ink
There a small bud stamp in the set and I actually added that to my stem too for a little extra detail.
I didn’t add any of the layers with dimensionals to keep it nice and simple…
I think it’s good to remind ourselves just what we can create with just card, stamps and ink. What simple stamping will you do today?
I’m now looking forward to using this set much more and stepping it up too. Watch this space.
