How have you all been? Honestly, I am just waiting for everything to get back to normal.
But who knows, this may be the new normal! So, its best to take life as it comes and enjoy every moment doing what you love most.
The one thing which is keeping me sane is crafting.
I am experimenting with all kinds of mediums and arts but card-making will be my forever love. I am glad that it is not going to change ever!
Today, I am sharing two cards made with a single stamp set. They are perfect examples how you can use the same stamps and achieve different looks. I have used the ‘Postal Special’ stamp set.Let’s check out the first card.
I have used the same stamps to create the background border on the card, the envelope flap and to emboss on paper and used them as embellishments too.
I masked the bottom part of the card front and stamped different postal marks with Little Birdie Pigment Inks. I have used second generation stamping as I wanted a faded look for the background. Please check my previous post HERE to learn the technique and to know more about these inks.
I added a little bit of shading with Walnut Stain distress ink.
Check the deckled edge it created.
Next, I stamped with the same stamps with the same inks on a coloured card stock and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is stamped using Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.
Arranged them in a cluster and mounted them with foam tape to add dimension.
I also stamped on the envelop flap with Tea Dye distress ink and made an embossed seal using the ‘Handmade With Love’ stamp.
For the second card, I combined the set with various die cuts to create an effective design.
I used one of the stamps from the set with wings and embossed it twice on a beige cardstock. Fussy cut it to make wings beneath the heart. I used various postmark with a grey ink to stamp the background on a light grey card base. I also used various dies from my stash to complete the look. I used these wax beads and a heart stamp to create a seal on the envelope. Yes, you can use Little Birdie stamps to make your customized seals.
That is all for today! I hope you enjoyed the process. Thinking out side of the box is the key to unique creativity. Keep crafting and stay safe!
Have a great day! Hugs!
