Hi, everyone! And welcome back. It’s Cassie here again to share a card I’ve made for the Whimsy Stamps blog. My mind has been torn between how I don’t want summer to end, but also how I can’t wait to dive into fall! Is anyone else struggling with this?? To combat that feeling, today I’m taking a stamp that I thought was so cute from Whimsy and making it into two completely different scenes. Let’s take a look!
As you can see, I took the Fairy and Puppy rubber cling stamp and stamped it out twice onto some 110 lb white, Copic friendly card stock. To make two completely different cards I went with two completely different color combos. The Halloween scheme used purples, oranges and a lot of dark grays, whereas the summery one was all about light pink and aqua with light grays. Each image was fussy cut out and I added some adorable white gel pen accents to them for a little interest.
I took two pieces of white card stock that were cut down to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 and used a cloud stencil to create a puffy cloud background. For the summery card I went with a whimsical pink, and for the Halloween card I used purple and orange for a darker look. Both pieces were spritzed with water to get the great effects of Distress Oxides going.
I also die cut a grass border with the Wavy Edgers Dies. I love the versatility of this die set! Last week I used it for waves, and this week grass. It’s a great set to have. I adhered the grass pieces down to each card base, which were both ink blended with Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide ink, and adhered the girl and her puppy over that.
I chose a sentiment for both cards that I thought suited them. For the summery card I used a sentiment from Bold Statements set and heat embossed it in gold in the sky. For the Halloween card I used a sentiment from Boo to You which was heat embossed with white embossing powder.
And that was it for my cards today! I hope you enjoyed this post showing how to use a stamp set and get two different results. Thank you so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!
