Stamping & Card making, Stamping & Scrapbooking, what's your hot button? Which came first card making or scrapbooking? As you can see cards and scrapbooks have similar elements: Title (Greeting), Pictures or focal point, accessories or embellishments, journaling or verse.
The handsome color combination of Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Whisper White along with the Eastern Bloom stamp set (retiring June 30) make both a great card and a great scrapbook page.
My dear and Wonderful Friend is from the Retiring stamp set All Holidays. The Print was colored with a Night of Navy marker and the script was color with a Marina Mist Marker. Huff, then stamp.
Doesn't the stamped area look like Designer Paper? The "film strip band was created By stamping a band of flowers, then layering with a darker strip of card stock punched with the Spiral Punch (Retiring, while supplies last).
Love the coordinating Satin Ribbon. My dear Kind & Wonderful friend card has a touch of Marina Mist Satin Ribbon and the Time Scrapbook Page ruffles a length of Night of Navy Satin Ribbon.
Robin's Stamping Tip
- When random stamping also start with the largest image first (in the sample the largest image is the large Night of Navy flower) and then fill in with the smaller images.
- Be sure to stamp off the edge of your paper leaving partial images. Stamping just whole images inside the edges looks contrived.
