Shadow Stamping Backgrounds Card Technique

Treasures of Life Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Have you ever tried Shadow Stamping Backgrounds on Cards?  It's such a fun technique!  It's well worth trying!  For today's card,  I used the Treasures of Life stamp set by Stampin' Up!.  I stamped the images using Granny Apple Green ink.  Then I stamped the verses using Whisper White Craft Ink.  Hint:  To get a  heavy layer of Craft ink, I stamped it 2 or 3 times using my Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool so that they are perfectly lined up each time.


Treasures of Life Stampin' Up!

The "Love" was created using two dies from the Always Die Set.

Woodland Wonder TriFold Card

Woodland Wonder Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

When I saw the Trifold Card made with Woodland Wonder stamp set found on page 53 of the January-June 2021 Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog I just knew that I was going to make these cards.  I love the fun foldout with cute animals and signs inside.  Adorable! The Woodland Wonder stamp set will also be a great set for making Slimline Cards.  Fun, Fun, Fun!

I did run into one little snag.  The measurements on page 53 didn't work for me.  After a few trials and errors, these are the measurements that I used.

Snail Mail Perky Valentines

Snailed It Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Yesterday's Hot Dog card was all about the stamping.  Let's swing things the other way.  Today's card is all about the tools (lots of fun happy tools) with just a smidgen of stamping.  Tools like the Snail dies which go way beyond snail dies.  Did you notice the adorable teeny tiny envelope?  Yep, that's a die from the Snail dies.  And that's just for starters!  There are also mushrooms, bitty hearts, mail, a word bubble, a framed square, and yes....snails!

Snailed It Stampin' Up!

Creating the "Happy Mail Enclosed " stamps was a 3 step process

Step one, using Bermuda Bay Ink and the Snailed It stamp set I stamped "Happy Mail Enclosed".

Step two, I lightly brushed over my stamping with Bermuda Bay Ink and the fabulous new Blending Brushes.  Yes, I admit that I am slightly obsessed with the Blending Brushes.  I love the effect and they are so easy to use!

Step three, I punched out my postage stamps using the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.

Snailed It Stampin' Up!

Believe it or not, other than the light brushing on the Postage Stamps there was no coloring on this card.  That's because the Snail Dies coordinated with images from the Snail Mail Designer Paper!  Love, love, love the fast and easy results!
