Graffiti Stamping

Clean & Simple One Layer Cards 3 started at onlinecardclasses.com on March 10, but I haven’t posted any of my homework until now. This card was inspired by Shari Carroll’s Graffiti Stamping card on Day 5 — I just loved her design! I stamped the sentiments on a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and adhered the panel to a Pool Party card base.

Featured Stamper: Mynnette Kitchen

Browsing through Featured Stamper stamping_mynn‘s gallery on SCS last Sunday, my eye fell on her striking Girl Hexies card. Since I had some new stamping supplies that included hexagons, my choice was made! I don’t think I did Mynnette’s card justice with my CASE, but I had fun making it. And that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?

Lots of Lovely Layers

I had fun using the Triple Stamping technique with oval layers that fit nicely inside the A2 Filigree Delight die-cut. Because this birthday card was created for a friend called Rose, I decided to pull out my retired Wild Rose stamp set, and stamp the images with current Stampin’ Up! colors for a fresh, updated look.

As Seen on StampTV
The Stenciled Color Blocking video on StampTV inspired this (early) Christmas card. In fact, I made four cards, each with a different color card base. This one was made with Soft Sky card stock, but the others look great as well, if I say so myself.

This card was inspired by Featured Stamper Kathleen Curry‘s Call me card. I loved Kathy’s color combination, so I kept that the same, but I used different stamps and added a text bubble instead of a banner. I stamped the camera image on the back of the On Film die cut, with the help of my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, and used a silver brad for the lens.

My dad, who is an avid photograhper, will hopefully have received this birthday card in the mail by now. Today is his birthday!
