Quiet Reflection

Do you like simple stamping? Or stepping your project up with a quick and simple technique? The Quiet Reflection stamp set (162689) gives you all of these options, plus it has some great sentiments too!

This first card uses a simple technique of stamping, crumpling the paper and adding some sponging to the crinkles.

Two Classic Inks were used to ink up the image, Pean Pie and a bit of Mossy Meadow on the top image which gives it a cool effect. The sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow and the Pecan Pie 1/2″ Bordered Ribbon (161634) adds a bit more texture to the project.

This next project uses the same two color ink technique for the image but this time it is Mossy Meadow and Pretty Peacock.

The card has been stepped up with our dies the Deckled Rectangle Dies (159173) which have been used to cut out the image. Texture has been added with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (156505) to the Lost Lagoon layer and a few of the Pretty Peacock sequins from the Adhesive Backed Sequins Trio Pack (161206). And this last card uses a fun technique too.

The image was stamped in our Pebbled Path, if you haven’t added this color to your ink collection you’ll want to since it is a lovely warm gray. Then some color was added to the stamped panel in Balmy Blue and Blueberry Bushel with our Blending Brushes (153611). Add a bit of Linen Thread (104199) as your horizon. Finally our Christmas Pinecones Dies (1569309) were used in a non traditional manner to emboss the Pebbled Path card stock layer. Simply turn the dies over so that it doesn’t cut your card stock and run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss. It will emboss your card stock this way rather than cut the pinecones out. A great way to add texture and a fun technique that packs a wow factor.

More Detailed Dogwood

Here is North Georgia spring is always heralded in with our Dogwood trees that dot the landscapes and woods. They never fail to impress either and so I expect that if you love them too you’ll enjoy creating with the Detailed Dogwood (Sale-a-bration 162953).

Once again this stamp set is an image only set so that you can team it up with your favorite sentiment as you create. Here are a couple of cards that use this lovely set. This first card uses the soft Bubble Bath and have teamed it up with Lemon Lime Twist. The Watercolor Painted was used to color the images to create a quick and easy wash of color.

And if you don’t recognize the sentiment it is from our Quiet Reflection (162689) that you can find in our January – April Mini Catalog. For a bolder look this next gift card holder uses the Moody Mauve, Mossy Meadow, and the Forever Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (162573) with it’s lovely foiling.

The background uses the Notes of Nature stamp set (163203) and the dogwoods have some Clear Wink of Stella (141897) to add a bit of shimmer. Sponging and a bit of wash gives the card a softer feel. Open it and you have a spot for a gift card

Don’t you love how color impacts our creations? Something as simple as a color choice makes a project feel so different even when you use the same stamp sets allowing you to make it your own.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some cards using the Notes of Nature stamp set with you.
