Svitlana is here. Today, I will be sharing cards featuring the new Warm Hugs Stamp Set.
I made three clean and simple cards using the set.
For my first card, I treated the biggest stamp from the set as a small background and applied a background technique to it.
I stamped it in the middle of a white panel using Teal Cave, Aqualicious, Sicilian Amber and Yellow Ochre Dye Inks, one transitioning into another. I used my mini MISTI for stamping to be able to stamp at the same spot several times.
I was applying ink onto a part of the stamp, blotting off the edge with a towel (to not have sharp edges from an ink pad) and then stamping. I did it for all four colors.
After that, I stamped the outline image for this design in black using a stamp from the Rose Blossom Stamp Set.
Next, I stamped a sentiment from the set using Obsidian Pigment Ink. Lastly, I foam mounted the panel onto a teal card base.
You know when you die cut a stamped image using the matching dies you get this white border around? Well, I wanted to replicate this look only with a black outline.
After that, I fussy cut all three stamped leaving a black border around.
My last card is also quite simple, design-wise. This stamp set reminded me of images from a vintage botanical book, so I wanted to replicate it.
First, I stamped the biggest stamp from the set onto white cardstock using the Sand Dunes Dye Ink. When I was stamping, after applying the ink, I removed it with a paper towel from the top and bottom edges. This was to avoid sharp lines there.
Next, I blended the Rocky Shore Dye Ink around the image, extending this way the background. It was the reason why I was removing inks from the top and bottom parts – to achieve the “longer” continuing background.
Next, I trimmed the image along its left and right sides and sprinkled with water. After that, I die cut the Creative Edges: Notebook Die on the top and tore the bottom edge. Then, I tied a natural twine around the bottom part of this piece.
I made a panel out of a Moonrock Cardstock and adhered it onto a Parchment card base. Next, I popped up the panel onto the card. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment along the panel side using Mocha Dye Ink.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you were inspired to create with the NEW Warm Hugs Stamp Set!
