Hello and welcome back! It’s Anna here and today I’ve got a couple of projects to share with you, highlighting the fabulous Handmade Collection by Stephanie Low. I had so much fun creating these cards: Stephanie’s new collection is just awesome and so inspiring!
Kitchen Handmade Card
My first card features the Kitchen Handmade set: its images are just perfect for homemade gifts from the kitchen.
I started working on this card by creating the background. I used one of the images from the Kitchen set and stamped a custom pattern in two colors on a white cardstock panel. Then, I cut the stamped panel in three parts and mounted them on a card base.
I stamped the main image with black dye ink and colored it with Copics. Once the coloring was complete, I added some Wink of Stella to the banner for shimmer and die-cut the image using the coordinating die. Next, I foam mounted the main image onto my card, adding a stripe of vellum behind it.
To finish, I added some sparkling clear sequins as embellishment.
Handcrafted Handmade Card – More Inspiration
This project features the Handcrafted Handmade set and is a colorful example of how small stamps can be stretched to create unique designs.
To create the background, I stamped the craft tools several times on a white cardstock panel using gray dye ink. Then, I added some yellow splatters on the stamped panel with the ink smooshing technique. It was so much fun!
Next, I stamped the main images with black dye ink and colored them with Copic markers. I fussy cut all of them and mounted them onto my card base. I made some elements pop out using foam tape to create dimension.
I also added a bit of shimmer on the sentiment using my Wink Of Stella clear brush.
Finally, I added a bunch of sparkling clear sequins to embellish my card.
