One of my favorite tasks at Club Scrap is to create cards for monthly unmounted stamp spoiler email.
Let's peek at my Adirondacks card-making adventures...
Cut three 2" Ivory squares, stamp with images and sentiments from the sheet, allowing them to "fall off" the edges. Color the images, mat with Kraft and layer onto a Blue stamped panel.
Brayer a sunset background onto a sheet of white coated paper with Earth, Topaz, Carnation and Sapphire inks.
Back in the pre-GPS "olden days," we commonly used folded maps on our travel and hiking adventures. Re-create your own folded map with the trail map image. Fold a stamped panel, and apply Earth ink directly to the raised creases.
Stamp the mallard onto a sheet of Ivory, shade with colored pencils, and cut around the image with scissors. Layer onto the stamped panel with foam adhesive.
ART NOUVEAU UM
Stamp the fireflies within and outside of the jar, tint with a yellow pencil, and top with glitter glue.
Stamp the jar and lid onto a separate sheet of Kraft paper and trim with scissors. Add a double thickness of foam adhesive circles to the center of the jar and apply bookbinding glue to the outside edges to shape the element into a gentle curve.
Fold a sheet of Ivory paper and stamp the jar onto the edge of the crease. Cut through both layers with sharp scissors, leaving the fold in tact. Add a jute bow to the lid and use as an adorable gift greeting!
Stamp the miniature jar onto the lower center of an Ivory panel. Carefully cut around the rim of the jar with a craft knife, and slide Mint handmade stems into the jar. Top the stems with punched flowers, add a waxed linen bow, and finish with a stamped "jar of hugs" label.
Cut the UM arrow image into two pieces, and stamp the individual parts of the arrow around the words of a sentiment in a contrasting color.
"Canoe see" the cute little images on this sheet? Less is more, in this case. Simply stamp the image next to a sentiment and add a bit of blended watercolor.
