It's my day to share a Project of the Week here on the Repeat Impressions Blog, The House that Stamps Built. I'm going to share a super easy, clean and simple card, that you can create
for any occasion! Since it's still winter, and we're expecting sleet and snow this weekend, I decided to use the Repeat Impressions 'Let it Snow' 2006-H, and 'Snowflakes' 8805-K.
To begin, cut panel to desired size. Place a straight edge across your panel,
and lightly draw a pencil line on each side of your straight edge.
It will look like this:
Next, trim some post it notes, or masking material of your choice, and mask off
the section that you just created (sorry, this photo appears to be upside down!)
Using stamps and inks of your choosing, stamp randomly over the white space,
being sure to overlap your mask now and then.
Remove the mask, and it should look like this:
Gently erase your pencil lines, once your ink is dry.
I have to get a bit excited here - my BEAUTIFUL eraser was part
of my Christmas present from my bestie, Shirley! Isn't she
I use a Stamp-a-ma-jig when I want to get a perfect placement, so
that was my next step. I stamped Let it Snow on the plastic sheet....
It will look like this:
I removed the plastic sheet, and replaced it with the stamp, and stamped onto the
white space on the card panel with gray ink.
Here's what it looked like:
I decided that it looked a bit 'blah', so I lined up the plastic sheet once again,
moved it a bit to the left, and stamped again, using pink ink. Much better, right???
At this point, you can do nothing, you can draw a border line, cut a cardstock borderline,
OR add some glitter! Since I love, love, love glitter, I added a couple strips of
double sided adhesive, and.....
sprinkled with beautiful, sparkly, snowy, glitter!
For the last step, I used my Perfect Papercrafting Mini Rulers (see sidebar to find out how you can get a free cutting mat) and cutting mat, and put a pretty pink mat behind the focal panel,
and mounted that on a gray card base.
So, what do you think? Imagine wee bugs, with a fun sentiment, or flowers, with a birthday sentiment - you can see that the possibilities are endless!
