I am going to share with you some of the cards that I made during this afternoon’s Stamp-a-Stack, featuring the Fox and Friends stamp set from the current mini catalogue. But before I get on to those, I thought you might like to see another card that I made which was inspired by one of the lovely ladies who was at the stamp-a-stack, Alison. Alison used this gorgeous ribbon from my stash (ie not Stampin’ Up!) on one of her cards and I just had to make one with it as well, the colour goes just beautifully with the Rich Razzleberry cardstock! Although the photo doesn’t do it justice, the ribbon has a beautiful pink tinge to it in real life.
I have used Rich Razzleberry cardstock and Whisper White which I have run through the Big Shot with an embossing folder to create that gorgeous but subtle background. The image is from the Asian Artistry Hostess set from the current mini catalogue, stamped in Stazon ink and then coloured using a blender pen in Kiwi Kiss, Rich Razzlebery with a touch of Melon Mambo. The flower has then been cut out with paper snips and glued on.
Now for the stamp-a-stack. I allowed the ladies to have a bit of freedom with the cards today, so they made a few different cards, but here are a couple that I made.
The first one uses the whale from Fox and Friends, stamped in Tempting Turquoise and Brilliant Blue.
The greeting is from a previous mini, so not currently available, but I thought it was just right for this card.
The next card uses those cheeky monkeys, and colours Soft Suede and Riding Hood Red.
I have done some faux stitching on this one, using my paper piercing tool and mat pack, and white gel pen. And also the Spiral punch down one side of the whisper white cardstock.
And lastly, another card using a non Stampin’ Up! embossing folder in the Big Shot. I really hope we get more of these when the new catalogue comes out in September, they really make it easy to create a lovely background and are just so easy to use.
The cardstock I have used for this one is Certainly Celery and Whisper White, the turtles are inked in Certainly Celery and then “thumped” using an Almost Artichoke marker for the dark spots. The ribbon is also from my own stash.
Well, I hope you get some inspiration from something here and have a lovely long weekend full of craft and stamping time!
