Hello, it's Debby here. Today I have a video (see below) showing how to create a retro stamped look using the Simple Flowers set and then a second example with the Coffee Love set.

Starting out with my first card using the Simple Flowers set, I masked off three squares on a panel of white card. I then stamped images from the Simple Flowers set on post it notes, trimmed these out and laid these masks within the squares.

With all the masking now in place I blended inks in to the background of each square, from left to right, Evening Gray, Blush and Warm Sunshine. I then removed the masks and stamped the Simple Flowers images in Mountain Mist, Caramel Toffee, Frayed Leaf and Evening Gray.

I stamped the lovely large Beautiful sentiment from the set spanning the bottom of the right two squares. Finally I blended Mountain Mist in to a scrap of card and stamped and white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment before trimming out and adding with foam adhesive.

For my second Coffee Love example, I set out the card in the same way by masking three rectangles. I then stamped images from the Coffee Love set within the rectangles. I used the matching dies to cut masks from post it notes and then blended the backgrounds to the rectangles in Blush, Evening Gray and Warm Sunshine. I stamped a sentiment from Coffee Love spanning across the top of the right two rectangles.

Finally I added some very simple Copic coloring to the images.

I didn't add any shading as I thought the flat look went well with the retro style.

Here's the two cards together. I really like the simple retro style with the pop of color.

Fabulous cards, Debby – I love being reminded that cards shouldn’t always be A2 size! The longer size allows for more beautiful stamping. Thanks for inspiring me.

I love making a card to fit the stamping rather than the other way around. I make my own envelopes so I’m not constrained by having cards that fit standard sizes :D

The blending and stamping techniques are not too tricky so it’s just a case of laying everything out neatly. Hope you give it a go :D
