Tone on Tone Stamping with Inspired By Stamping

Hello!
I am so excited as today, I have my first post as a guest designer for Inspired By Stamping! For today’s card, I’ll be using the Big Thanks stamp set [pictured below] which has gorgeous fonts and adorable tagline sentiments that I will definitely be using in the future! I found that this stamp set had everything I needed to create this card as I did some tone on tone stamping with the cute flower and leaf images provided.

I have a video where you can see the entire process of how I created the card.

I began by die cutting the label from Inspired By Stamping’s Fancy Labels 3 set and stamped the “Thank You” from the Big Thanks stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black Ink. As I planned to do some in laid die cutting, I placed the oval die down when I was positioning my stamps with my MISTI tool; if you don’t have a MISTI, you could lay down the die and line up an acrylic block with an element on your card or the edge of your paper.

I blended Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Rusty Hinge and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks onto the label; the latter of the two were just on the edges to help give an aged, antique look. I cut the oval and then held the two pieces together with micropore. I used the flower images from the Big Thanks stamp set to do some tone on tone stamping with Peacock Feather and Broken China Distress Ink – I created a couple of masks with a post it note for the flower which is just an outline image, I felt the complete images didn’t need masks as I was going to be stamping in the same colour. You can see the entire build up of the stamping in the video.

I cut two holes in the sides of the label with a craft knife and thread some crochet ribbon from Inspired By Stamping’s Christmas Ribbon set. I put some black foam on the back of the oval and label before adhering them together; it was quite easy to line the pieces up as I could match the flowers and part of the “K” up. I added some vellum and mounted the entire panel onto an A2 size Kraft card base. I adhered the ribbon down with some double sided sellotape; I placed it along the length of ribbon that would be on the back of the card for extra security.

And that is the card finished! For more pictures, head over to the Inspired By Stamping blog. I hope you have enjoyed the video and reading about my card. I can’t wait for you to see my second post!
