Cardmaker Collection Inspiration with Marie Heiderscheit
Hey, friends! It’s Marie here from Marie Nicole Designs. I am excited to be sharing three new cards I created using the NEW Cardmaker collection from Spellbinders.
There are so many great stamp images in this collection and they can be used in so many ways! I’ve created three very simple cards to get your creativity started. I can’t wait to see what you create with these stamps!
Stamp, Color, Cut!
For my first card, I stamped out the little images from the camping animals set. So many cute little images to color on this set! I used some black hybrid ink to stamp with and then colored in the images with some alcohol markers.
After coloring, I fussy cut the images.
I wanted to create a background of light colors, so I used a light grey, a light kraft, and then a bold navy color. After adding strips of navy and kraft to my grey background, I used a circle die to cut the circle from the front of the card, just a little offset so that it ends up going off the page.
I then stamped and embossed the sentiment, and I also stamped some stars on the top of the card using light grey ink. It’s hard to see in the photos, but definitely, a cute touch if you see it up close!
To finish the card I added my colored images using some foam adhesive for dimension. Simple and cute!
For my next card, I used one image to create a repeating pattern on my background. I chose the potted plant and stamped it using two different hues of green. I also varied the direction of the plant so that it gave a little variety to the background.
Once the background was done, I stamped the sentiment with some black ink. Then, I mounted the front panel onto a kraft cardstock base with foam adhesive.
I added the little bird on a piece of foam adhesive right above the sentiment and I think he looks so cute there!
This last card is again a super simple one that would be easy to recreate on your own! I used the heart image that looks like a circuit design and stamped that with embossing ink. I then embossed the image with white embossing powder on white cardstock. It was hard to see at first with it being white-on-white, but the magic happens when you add some ink!
I took a few colors of ink and started lightly blending it on over the embossed image. The image resists the ink, making it show up more against the color that is being applied to the background! This creates such a fun look that is simple to do. After I had my ink on, I added some splatters with a sparkle pen.
I then stamped the sentiment in some bold black ink and mounted the front panel to the background using foam tape. This would be a simple and fun card to create for Valentine’s Day!
That’s all I have for you today. Thanks for stopping by!
