Thank you again for all your warm and happy comments! I am thrilled that you are enjoying the sneak peaks. It's always fun to come up with new designs and ways to use a stamp set.
The first card up today uses a technique I learned many years ago. The 3-d effect. Every once in a while you will see it pop up on my blog. To create this effect all you need is white ink along with a colour ink. Always start with the white and stamp the colour over the top to create a pop. So simple and yet so striking.
Step 1: Create a base and layers. Use scor-pal to create vertical and horizontal line groupings on top layer.
Step 2: Create a die cut and paper square. Create edges using scor-pal. Stamp bird image using 3-d effect outlined above. Stamp sentiment and mini flower stamp.
Step 3: Attach ribbon.
Step 4: Adhere layers.

I am not sure about you, I am often grabbing the same types of cards to give to friends and family and suddenly my supply runs out. I like creating a go to card. One that won't take all day long to make and can be easily recreated.
I created three cards using three colours and three different images and sentiments from Take Three: Summer. Hmmm there is a three theme going on here... While I added stickles to the images they look just as good without.
Step 1: Create a base. Stamp polka dot strip.
Step 2: Stamp image, punch, and create a square die cut.
Step 3: Stamp sentiment, adhere layers and apply stickles.
