Stamper’s First Aid

Hey Everyone! I’m back with a few projects and a video to share on ways to add a little something to designs you may think need a little more. I chose Magdalene Yeo’s beautiful card because I was inspired by her layout and color choices. Thanks so much for submitting your card for this challenge.

Here are the three cards I made using three techniques Magdalene or others can use to add just a little something.

  1. Pop it out
  2. Flatten it out
  3. Go all out

To pop it out, I used lots of foam adhesive to pop those die cuts off the card front to give them lots of height and dimension. I also used Copic markers to add shading to the stamped flowers.

For this card, I “flattened it out.” I wanted to share how you can create a one-layer card using the same supplies. The Copic marker shading really did the trick with this design I think.

For my last card, I went all out by adding more stamped images to the overal design. I still used all the same supplies that I know Magdalene has, but just used more of them.

Thanks so much for joining me for Papertrey Ink’s Stamp-a-Faire. It would not be the same without your participation, enthusiasm, and interaction, so THANK YOU!
