I used the 2019 Occasions Catalog stamp set called All That You Are to create these three gorgeous cards!!
The first card is a great design for multiple stamp sets and sentiments. I love that the bold outline stamp set does not necessarily have to be colored in to look good. I used the 2018-20 In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paper Pack and the color Lovely Lipstick with this particular card but I think it would be fun to create this same design in multiple colors. The layer that you see above the Basic Gray card base is a layer of our Card Stock Vellum. It adds a light and airy elegance to the card.
If you do want to add some color, but don’t really want to “color” try adding stripes of color with a textured stamp. This card was made with the lace stamp in the Annual Catalog called Touches of Texture. I layered up in generational stamping: Tranquil Tide, Balmy Blue and Fresh Fig. Really, this card goes together super fast. The very hardest part was tying on the Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon! But that bow sure turned out cute!! It’s a great birthday card and the Tailored Tag Punch just works so perfectly for the sentiments.
If however you do enjoy coloring . . . this might be a new technique for you. First, lightly dauber in the color. Then, go over various parts of the image with watercolor pencils to create a little more detail. It’s fairly quick and gives a rather stunning look to this card. The image almost seems to “glow!” Fussy cutting the thank you probably took about as look as it did to color!! haha!! Enjoy the Stamp and Chat with Kay Facebook Live rebroadcast.
