Hello! It’s Kelly here with another Tuesday Ideas post! It seems like I’ve been away for a while since the Blog Hop and new release! Today my card uses the newly released Little Things stamp set paired with the Fall Colors stamp set. I thought it would be fun to combine the two for a summer look, rather than fall, and I love how it turned out!
To begin, I stamped the three different leaf images using three different green inks here and there. I tried my best to create visual balance between the colors and shapes. I also added the little “splatter” images using grey ink around the leaves to add some detail.
I also stamped the grid image and sentiment border in gray ink as well. I wanted those elements to be soft. The “hi there” sentiment is stamped in black, and is from the Fall Colors set. The cute circle that says “favorite” and the “You’re a fantastic friend” sentiment is from the new “Little Things” and those are both stamped in black.
I added a few Seaside Buttons for some extra color and detail. I cut this panel slightly, because I wanted to add the polka dot detail to the right corner. I used my MISTI stamping tool and stamped it a few times for nice saturation onto a Kraft cardbase. I love how this card turned out! I hope you will try using some seasonal stamps in an unexpected way!
