StampinByHannah Make it Monday | 2 Step Stampin’ with Good Tidings from Stampin’ Up!
Welcome to Make It Monday! I have two blog posts coming to you today… because I have a fabulous club launching this afternoon (and this project is quite a big sneaky peak!).
I have been playing around with the Good Tidings stamp set for ages! You guys know I’m such a sucker for a technique, and 2 step stampin is certainly one of my favourites. I just love being about to create a fun, detailed, multi-coloured image quickly and easily…. and for that, this stamp set is Perfect!
This card uses an unusual colour combination… and not one that you might think of when making your Christmas projects! But I really LOVE the effect when the colours are layered together.
The leaves and berries both use 2 stamps to create this image, and while they are detailed they are easy enough to line up… and even if you’re a little off, it still looks pretty! The trick is to find parts of the two stamps that line up and match exactly. One the leaf stamps its the insides of the images, where there is a cut out for the berries. You could use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure perfect placement, but because these are photopolymer stamps and are therefore see-through it is not necessary.
The sentiment is also taken from the Good Tidings stamp set. Stamped and heat embossed in White onto a Basic Black die cut stitched circle. I did try something on the original card that I didn’t do in the video… and that was to add a hint of Whisper White craft ink with a sponge dauber for a chalkboard effect… I kinda like it! What do you think?
Because this card is on a Basic Black card base, I also created an inside layer to give you somewhere to write. The inside layer simply features a single holly leaf using the same colour combination as the front. I did make another card using Good Tidings a few weeks ago, which you can find HERE!
The card is finished with a trio of the Black Rhinestone Jewels… I cannot get enough of these! They are just so pretty.
