Kath brings us a feminine theme this week. This theme is one that lends itself well to going all out with all kinds of girly things, which can be a lot of fun.
Or, it can be done with simplicity, such as a one-layer card. Like this one:
Not only is this a somewhat minimalist design, but I further simplified things by using one of Stampin' Up's pre-cut and pre-scored 3x5 Whisper White note cards. Perfect for when you need to do a quick card.
The background from Bokeh Dots is the perfect size for the note cards. And using the Stamparatus meant I could easily do a lot of cards with this same design in a short time.
Because the Stamparatus has two plates, I was able to set up the Bokeh Dots stamp on one plate and the image from Dandelion Wishes with the sentiment from Wood Words on the other plate.
Using a sponge brayer, I inked up the Bokeh Dots stamp with Coastal Cabana - one of the returning colours. I did have to ink and stamp a few times to get the result I wanted. Love the Stamparatus!
To get the dandelion image in two colours, I used Post It notes to mask off the sides of the bokeh image, and inked the dandelion image with Tranquil Tide. After removing the side masks, I then masked the stamped portion, again lining up the mask with the sides, and inked the stamp with Coastal Cabana and stamped again.
I inked the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped at the same time as doing the sides of the dandelion. Did I mention I love the Stamparatus? It took no time at all to stamp a whole stack of these.
Now check out Watercooler Wednesday to see what the rest of the talented Watercooler Artists have done.
