OK I admit it, my last couple of projects have been quite involved. So today I want to scale things back quite a bit. After all you really don’t need lots of fancy tools or difficult techniques to create lovely projects. The images on today’s card might look fancy, but honestly the stamp does all the work. The All The Good Things Stamp Set is one of the new DistINKtive range from Stampin’ Up! Tap the rubber stamp onto an ink pad then stamp, and the detailed image magically appears.
I began my project by assembling my simple layers.
For the card base I chose Bermuda Bay Card, cut and scored using my Stampin’ Trimmer. Then I folded the card along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder.
Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow), I then added a layer of Rich Razzleberry Card to the front.
ALL THE GOOD THINGS
Then I was ready to do some stamping.
I began with the largest image, the fish with the attached good fortune sentiment. I inked up the image with Rich Razzleberry ink and stamped it onto a layer of Whisper White Card.
Then I inked up the smaller fish image with Bermuda Bay ink and stamped that on the left of the sentiment. This layer was added to the front of the card with more liquid glue.
Next I stamped the large fish again onto Whisper White Card. This time I cut around the fish with Paper Snips leaving a small white edge around the image. Once that was done I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to mount the fish on top of the one on the card front.
On another layer of Whisper White Card I stamped the smaller fish in the top right-hand corner with Bermuda Bay ink. Then I added the ‘Hoping you find all the good things’ sentiment in the centre. This piece was fixed inside the card with liquid glue.
The Whisper White Medium Envelope came next. Here I stamped the smaller fish on the front in the top left and bottom right corners.
All that was left was to add a few bubbles to the front of the card in the form of three small Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels
In no time at all the card was finished, and probably the most difficult part was cutting out the fish.
I must say that I love this new range of DistINKtive stamp sets, and will be using them in each of my classes. After all, it would only be fair to share all the good things Stampin’ Up! has to offer.
