Welcome, friends! Thank you for stopping by today! I’m here to share a card with you using some awesome stamps from the Inspired By Stamping online store! I went patriotic this time, and I’ve got a few tips on how to add texture to your creations, too! Take a peek at my creation…
These fun images from the Swirling Pinwheels stamp set were stamped in black onto some subtly patterned paper. I also stamped one in blue and red ink, then fussy cut it out to add for a POP of color. White enamel dots were added to the centers.
The sentiment, pieced together from the Big Wonderful stamp set, was heat embossed in two colors onto a strip of vellum. I decided to staple it to the card base instead of trying to hide any sort of adhesive.
Some baker’s twine helps to add texture to the top of the card. I added a bunch of little stamped elements using black and white inks and stamps from the Pretty Planners stamp set for even more interest. I love how these images look when stamped over each other in different inks!
I really like the way that this card turned out! I think that this card is just perfect for a very special friend, don’t you? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
Here’s the list of all the ways I added texture to my card~
*I stamped onto patterned paper.
*I heat embossed my sentiment.
*I used more than just cardstock paper to make my card.
*I stamped white ink over other stamped images.
*I added embellishments made from different materials.
*I used dimensional foam to add height to my focal image.
That’s all for me today, friends! I hope you come and join our current monthly inspiration challenge at Inspired By Stamping and that you grab these goodies from the Inspired By Stamping online store, too! Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! 🙂
