Card Making

Little One

For the past few weeks I have slowly been playing with the Little One stamp set. I somehow managed to order all my new stamp sets in wood, which I never do, so it’s been really good to play with them and compare to the clear and photopolymer sets.  I have enjoyed not having to mount them onto blocks, but I have realised how much I need a StampaMaJig to line everything up.

 

I started by simply stamping the tipi image onto some plain Whisper White card. The image is so beautiful I felt it really didn’t need much adding to it, other than a hint of colour. I chose Crushed Curry yellow, as I don’t really like gender specific colours.  I love how the yellow and black worked together, and after much procraftinating (this consisted of days of turmoil staring at it pinned on my wall) I decided to leave it as it was and simply mount onto a card, stamping the phrase Welcome Little One on the inside.

Little One Cloud Baby Cards

My next two cards were inspired by Tanya Rose over at Tinkering with Ink. After trawling for some much needed Pinspiration, I stumbled across her video of these cards, and immediately ordered everything (this doesn’t happen to me often).  I love how ‘non baby’ these cards are, and also the gender neutral aspect.  The rustic background of the Wood Textures Paper Stack is right up my Scandi Vibes street.  I borrowed the Pattern Party decorative mask off my lovely friend, Kate, and had much fun pasting the embossing paste on with the palette knives I ordered.  At first I wasn’t sure how much to spread on, then my rationing brain switched on, and I started pasting much more thinly.  I thought it would be quite a messy project, but it really wasn’t, and after closing the tub, and washing the knife and mask quickly all I had to do was leave it to dry.

Embossing Paste

The next day, I came back and quickly stamped the Welcome Little One phrase from the stamp set with VersaMark onto vellum, and embossed using copper powder.  I cut a small circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits, and embossed little stars using clear powder in the background (which you probably can’t see). Once that was done, I simply stuck down some of the new Stars & Hearts Wooden Elements.
