Hi crafty friends, Jenny here, and today, I have two card projects to share that feature the super fun Stamp Camp Collection by Jane Davenport for Spellbinders. This stamp collection features Jane’s sketchy and sassy style, just perfect for fresh and fun card projects for your friends!
Speak Fluent Fantastic
My first card features the Glorious Mermaid for the main image. I just love mermaid themed images, and this one is so fun – I love how the tail loops around, I just had to make a circle card!
I first stamped the mermaid, using Bristol Smooth cardstock and FSJ Black Licorice ink. I colored in the mermaid with brush markers, using a waterbrush to pull out the color. I added lots of paint splatters when done, and a little sparkle shimmer spritz for some glitz. I also colored in the tail and hair of the mermaid with a shimmer pen.
The sentiment is from the Fluent Fantastic stamp set from the same collection, stamped in dark blue pigment ink to co-ordinate.
I die-cut the entire image using a circle die from the Nestabilities Essential Circles die set. I also die-cut a border from holographic cardstock using the Picot Petite Circles, then adhered them together on another circle, slightly larger than the first to act as the base. To enable the card to stand up, I trimmed a strip of cardstock slightly narrower than the circle and folded it in half and adhered to the back.
For a little bit of fun, I stamped the image again on vellum in green mixed media ink, and then heat embossed it with sparkling clear embossing powder. I trimmed out the tail fin and adhered it on the base of the tail at the top, curling up the tail. I finished with some large gems from my stash.
Queen of Everything
My second card features the elegant ballet dancer from the Beautiful Dreamer stamp set which I stamped and colored in the same way as for the mermaid.
I also stamped the ballet shoes separately in pink mixed media ink and heat embossed it with clear sparkling embossing powder, and heat embossed the crown in gold embossing powder, then trimmed them out. I adhered them directly onto the colored dancer image with liquid glue. I added a few splatters with a dark marker and water, and some rose metallic spray.
The sentiment is stamped in pink mixed media ink and is from the Fluent Fantastic stamp set.
I trimmed out the image using a rectangle die from the Essential Rectangle Nestabilities die set. I created a coordinating border using the Picot Petite Rectangles with pink glitter cardstock and adhered it around the edge.
To create the skirt, I stamped the skirt onto vellum using the same pink mixed media ink and heat embossed with the sparkling embossing powder again. I then fussy cut it out and adhered it to the dancer with liquid glue just at the top of the skirt, folding it up to add some dimension. I just love the way you can see the dancer’s legs through the skirt almost like a real tutu! I mounted the entire card onto a white notecard, and added some embellishments from my stash as before.
