Handmade Collection Inspiration | Made with Love Card with Yana
Hello friends, this is Yana Smakula, Spellbinders in-house creative designer. We continue to share inspiration using one of our newest collections – Handmade by Stephanie Low. See Stephanie’s post introducing her collection here as well as inspiration posts here and here.
Like I mentioned in my previous post, I love to use my stamps to create the look of patterned paper. Yes, these days you can go and buy just about any patterned paper you want, but I enjoy the process of making my own design tremendously!
To create this Handmade with Love card I stamped the image repeatedly onto a white cardstock panel. I was going for a linear pattern this time (in other words my images aren’t stamped randomly), so I maintained some order to my stamping.
I used multiple colors of markers and colored some yellow, some blue and some images green. Once again I also used gray C1 marker to outline each stamped impression and create the illusion of a drop-shadow. This adds depth and dimension to the pattern, yet it still remains flat.
I also stamped my main image and colored it with markers, I cut it out using a coordinating die and foam mounted onto a blue cardstock rectangle which I foam mounted in the middle of my stamped pattern.
Have fun stamping!
