Hi, today’s post features another of the free stamp sets which you can earn with a qualifying order and it is another one which I love! It is called Amazing You. There are so many different ways you can use it and I love that most of the words are separate so you can make them say whatever you would like. This stamp set coordinates with the die set Celebrate You (which can also be earned with a qualifying order) and I have used both on this card.
I know that sometimes solid stamps can be a little confusing for new stampers to use, especially for images like the flower below where you don’t want it to be black, or all pink, or all green, for example. There are a couple of different ways you can add colour and I’m going to show you one which is super easy but I think looks quite dramatic too.
Here’s the card…
I stamped the image in Basic Black and then overstamped it with Versamark ink as I wanted to emboss it with clear embossing powder. You don’t have to do this step. I was after a glossy finish. (This is going to be SO easy to do when the Stamparatus is released)! Using sponge daubers (or stamping sponges), I added a touch of Melon Mambo ink to the centre of the flower before blending it out with Pink Pirouette ink. I love the dimension it creates. For the leaf area, I used Lemon Lime Twist. Even though the leaves are black, they do look green. So easy!
I die cut the sentiment three times as I really wanted it to pop up. (You could use Mini Stampin’ Dimesionals but they can be a bit fiddly). I often use the same colour cardstock as the top layer but for this card, I used Basic Black and Melon Mambo cardstock as well. It adds an ever so slightly different look to the card when you see it in real life – although you need to angle the card to really see the colours. It’s just a bit of fun!
You can see I used vellum so that the sentiment and flowers would stand out against the busy grey background. I simply cut it so that I could fold it over each edge of the panel and then taped it down. Easy! Then I simply positioned the flowers and sentiment as I liked.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
