From the moment I first saw Big On You, a photopolymer stamp set in the Occasions Catalog, I knew I loved these sayings with big fonts. I could easily create a project around “I Do Love You,” “It’s Your Day,” and “So Very Kind of You,” but when would I ever be able to use “I Think You’re Pretty Swell”? Well, today’s the day! Here’s a quick card I made with this awesome set:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Sweet and Flirty. How often do you receive a card that says “I think you’re pretty”? What a super-sweet, super-flirty thing to say! The combination of colors is sweet (Basic Gray, Whisper White and Blushing Bride) is sweet, and I added three flowers from Something to Say (heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Blushing Bride cardstock and punched with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack). I colored the pearls with the darkest shade of Smoky Slate Blendabilities marker – I can’t sell them anymore, but I sure can use the ones I have, right?
- Masking Technique. I love to create the exact sentiment or image I want – that sometimes means that some of the image must be masked out. I’ve shared the masking technique several times before – covering part of the image when inking so that only part of the image transfers to the paper (see my video here). Because this sentiment is so large and see-through (it’s photopolymer), I simply inked up the stamp on the words I wanted inked – no masking necessary.
- Luscious Vellum. Stampin’ Up! introduced four new Sale-a-Bration items in March (see all four of them here). I’ve been playing around with the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack a lot lately. On this card, the scalloped piece of vellum adds a unique backdrop to this fun card. The stack comes with 24 sheets (2 each of 12 Basic Gray designs). These are a must have. You’re welcome!
