Today’s birthday card is from the new, Game On Stamp Set. This idea has been “rolling” around in my head, since first seeing the set in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.
Without a bit of layering it is #simplestamping, meaning just stamps ink and paper, which is quick and easy, and great for beginners.
Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.
You can simply stamp on the card base or…
Use an Ornate Layers Die to cut a layer from regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock. You could also use a 2 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock without the detailed, die-cut edge.
Choose five colors of ink to stamp the rainbow of die (not to be confused with cutting dies).
I used Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie, which are in my Product List below. Stamp the first time in full strength, and a second time without re-inking. This is called “stamping off.”
Stamp the sentiment, “It’s your day. Roll with it” in Memento Black Ink. I used my Stamparatus to insure it stamped properly, but not necessary.
TIP: You can stamp on a piece of scrap paper before stamping on your project to ward off errors. Also, before stamping, look at the inked stamp to make sure there is full coverage, without ink on the edge where it’s unwanted.
Cut a piece of regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″.
Glue the stamped strip at an angle, and trim the four corners.
Glue this layer to the card base, and you’re done.
My layout was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch.
