Stampin’ Up! Inspiration Saturday!

Stampin’ Up! Inspiration Saturday!

Hello SCT friends! I’m Jessica Winter, Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team member and excited to share some new projects with you!

I paired the Tropical Chic Bundle with the Fabulous Flamingo Photopolymer Stamp Set to make a set of five thank you cards. These products are perfect for beautiful tropical summer cards.

I love to create my projects on a white background with soft stamped images so the colors can really pop.

For the different colored leaves and flowers I used three different color combinations—Soft Sea Foam and Granny Apple Green; Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce; Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo. Here are the steps I took when applying the ink colors.

  1. Press the stamp into the lighter ink pad as usual.
  2. Dab the darker onto the stamp with a Sponge Dauber.
  3. Stamp the image

For the finishing touches I added Faceted Dots and 5/8” Burlap Ribbon. I used Linen Thread and tucked a bundle of it behind my layers or tied a loop and decorated it with a button

You can see how the possibilities for different combinations are endless with these stamps and dies. They make layering so easy and fun! I hope you love my projects as much as I do.

~ Jessica Winter, Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team
