Have you ever just loved something because it's so versatile? You can do one thing with it, leave it alone and then come back to it later, and do something completely different? That's how I feel about stamping. You can use stamps to make something, and then come back later and make something new and fresh.
Today I am designing with stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop's February release. Most of my stamps feature Color Wheel, Baby Love and Sweet Victoria, but I also used some older sets for my last card, and for the exclusive card I am featuring on Facebook. I am a fan of combining sets, and using stamps in new ways, so I was excited to use a little bit of all my favorite sets.Color Wheel set with it. I stamped the Color Wheel on the back of the patterned paper, and trimmed out only one row. I then combined all the stamped and trimmed images into a color wheel, using foam tape to create some dimension. Try looking at your stamps differently, because it's okay to trim an image.
Sweet Victoria is my favorite Sweet Stamp Shop. I love the frame, the flowers and the vintage feel. For this card I was totally inspired by the frame. The frame stamp comes as half a frame, so you can combine two halves of the frame, or use one half and have the image going off the page, like I did.
Try stamping with a limited color scheme. I stayed with gray and yellow, but added pops of color with the red lace paper, and gold glitter letter stickers and sequins.
I love combining stamps and letter stickers to create new sentiments. Script and san serif font combinations are my favorite. The love sentiment is from the Baby Love set, and these glitter stickers are new from American Crafts.
Finally, I am fan of combining stamp sets. I'm a little weird and don't like being restricted to using just one set when I stamp. So, I love combining products that seem unrelated into a cohesive design that works perfectly. Ohh La La is a older set that features this adorable high heel and sentiment. I placed it inside an apothecary jar from the Jar of Sweets set. I can't tell you how much I love love love apothecary jars, I use them in my home decor, so I was beyond thrilled to receive this set.
Shoe shopping is a delectable treat for most women, at least that's how I look at it. I don't get many opportunities to buy shoes, so when I do buy them, it's like dessert, but without the calories. So, it seemed only fitting to place this adorable high heel in the apothecary jar.
