Two Step Stamping: Card Instructions

You can make this card in 10 mins or less!
  1. Card base is Whisper White, vertical card layout, scored on the left.
  2. Stamp the floral center in Pool Party.
  3. Then use the floral outline stamp in Basic Black and stamp on top of the Pool Party images.
  4. Then stamp the small outline flower image.
  5. In Peekaboo Peach, stamp the smaller solid floral image on the inside of all those images.
  6. Then I stamped the greeting and the speckles from the Birthday Blooms stamp set, in Basic Black ink.
  7. Open the card and stamp the floral/grunge image vertically on the right side.
  8. Then tear the card front so it then shows that image.

NOTE: It's OK if they do NOT line up perfectly...mine don't!  But I still think it looks pretty...don't you?

Totally Techniques: Spotlight


Good morning stampers!  This month's technique is called Spotlight. Wait until you see the Totally Techniques Design Team in action this week --- Ah-MAZING!!!!! WOW!



Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms

My card this week features the Birthday Blooms stamp set by Stampin' Up!  Believe it or not, this card is LOADED with different products from the Textured Impressions Folder to Washi Tape to Dazzling Details to water coloring and the SpotLight technique!



Spotlight Technique

In short, the Spotlight Technique is where you only color part(s) of a stamped image, essentially highlighting certain "spots" of your card.  There are different variations and all fun and I'm sure you'll see many today during the hop!

Quick Steps On Making This Card

  • 5" Square card in Peekaboo Peach.
  • Bottom 1/2 is embossed with the Lovely Lace embossing folder.
  • Then a black/vanilla piece of Playful Palette DSP adhered across the center (1-3/4 x 5).
  • Stamp the floral image in StazOn.
  • Sponge Soft Sky around the floral image.
  • Watercolor with Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo on the petals, the center is Daffodil Delight.  Then sprinkle the center with Dazzling Details.
  • Adhere Washi Tape to the left side of the focal panel, two strips.
  • Tear right top edge.
  • Adhere focal panel to Basic Black mat.
  • Tear right top edge of mat.
  • Adhere focal panel using Stampin' Dimensionals.
