Now that it’s a new year, hopefully we can all spend a little more time doing what we love: stamping! Whether you want to keep your projects simple or step them up, these designs we made using the Sale-A-Bration Thanks a Bunch Stamp Set will help you get back into the stamping spirit.
We kept it casual with this card. All we did was stamp out the carrots and leaves, then add a few polka dot accents and a die-cut sentiment.
We took our second card to the next level. Once we fussy cut the carrots, we temporarily placed them on the card front, then stamped and heat embossed the dots over the top. We used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the carrots, being sure to line them up with the dots. We finished with few Classic Matte Dots as a simple embellishment.
We really stepped up our game with our third card. First, we blended the Dots & Spots panel with Calypso Coral ink and splattered that and the carrots with water to give them a watercolor look. Then instead of stamping out the accents on the carrots, we heat embossed them with gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder for an extra shine. Next, we stamped out the carrot leaves, and stamped off a few times to make a few leaves a bit lighter. We fussy cut the leaves and crumpled them a bit before attaching them to the carrots. We finished by untwisting gold Simply Elegant Trim, and using the frayed pieces to tie a few bows before adhering them to the tops of the carrots.
