Up first is this card that uses a technique I like to call "stamp dissection". The technique is exactly what the name implies... I cut apart my stamp (in this case, into three sections) for easier inking and interesting color combinations. You can piece it together on your block if you want to stamp a solid color.
The three "stamps" I created are:
- make a
- teeny candle flame (that dots the i in wish)
- wish (minus the candle flame dot of course)
I stamped the Mod Borders triangle stamp in Lemon Drop ink, and the birthday sentiment in a combination of Lemon Drop, Razzle Berry, and Black Licorice inks. It was all stamped on the new Smooth White Card Stock, which is PERFECT for solid stamps. Love it!
I popped up the front white panel to add a little dimension.
Up next is another card that embraces the use of white space. Once again, I used Mod Borders and stamped it along 3 Smooth White panels, in three different colors; Blu Raspberry, Grape Jelly, and Razzle Berry. I lined them up precisely so the top of each panel always started with a full "open triangle".
The sentiment is from Birthday Sentiments, and I stamped the two stamps in two colors; Razzle Berry and Black Licorice. I accented the card with the color-matched buttons and added a circle of card stock beneath each one in the matching color. This prevented too much of the white from showing behind the button holes and offered a more solid accent. Each one was stitched on with a needle and thread.
