Hi Crafty Friends! This is Melody Rupple on the blog today to share a few projects I created using the new Cardmaker Collection. There are six stamp sets in the collection. I am going to share four of them with you.
Fabulous Friends Card
My first project features the Fabulous Friend Clear Stamp Set from the Cardmaker Collection. I stamped the image in black ink and then colored it with Copic Markers. I think this will be a perfect card for one of my girlfriends! Next, I cut a piece of cardstock to fit the card front and die cut a rectangle directly into the card front with the Precision Layering A2 A Etched Dies from the Precision Layering Basics Collection. Then I cut a second, smaller rectangle from black cardstock to add the inside matting.
I embossed the front panel with the Diamond Plaid Embossing Folder and finished the card with a sentiment from the stamp set.
Graceful Blooms Card
Next up is a look at the Graceful Blooms Clear Stamp Set from the Cardmaker Collection. This is a pretty floral set that can be used in a number of different ways. For my card, I chose to stamp and loosely color with Copic Markers. But you could just stamp for a beautiful background, watercolor, emboss with embossing powder, or stamp and then blend with ink.
I stamped two extra flowers and hand-cut them out. The Hello Sentiment is included in the Graceful Blooms Clear Stamp Set and the Friend Sentiment is from the Fabulous Friend Clear Stamp Set. I also added a few Crystal Mix Color Essentials Gems.
Bubble Over Card
My last card features the fun Bubble Over Clear Stamp & Die Set from the Cardmaker Collection and the Simple Stripes Clear Stamp Set from the Cardmaker Collection. To create my can of soda I stamped the can once on green cardstock and then on pale grey cardstock. I cut the top of the can from the grey cardstock and attached it to the top of the green can. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.
The Simple Stripes Clear Stamp Set is perfect for building backgrounds. I die cut with the Fizz Die directly into the card front and then added die cut bubbles and a few Crystal Mix Color Essentials Gems.
