I spent some time this week reminiscing about some old favorites of mine – Flashback Designer Series Paper pairs perfectly with Snapshot, a single stamp in the Annual Catalog (even if you aren’t using the paper pattern with the cameras on it). Here’s a fun card I made when I paired these two oldies with So You, a goodie from the Occasions Catalog:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Black Inks. This card features images stamped with two different black inks. I love the option of both for very different reasons. The camera is stamped with Jet Black StazOn Ink (the best way to get a crisp, clean image on a piece of colored cardstock), while the sentiment is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (while it was originally introduced to work with Blendabilities, this ink still leaves a very crisp and rich image and is also perfect for photopolymer stamps). In the end, you really can’t tell the difference.
- A Lot of Work. A simple card can sometimes consume more time and energy than you’d ever plan – I’m sure you can relate. I knew what I wanted, but it took several iterations and changes before I landed on the project I was happy with. Several cameras were stamped and cropped, and many pieces of paper were trimmed and cut before I got where it where I wanted it. Here’s a quick shot of the “aftermath” of this card on the day I made it:
- Color Combination. This color combination might not be completely obvious from a quick glance at this card, but there are three colors that are taking a front seat in this card: Basic Black, Pool Party and Very Vanilla.
Stamp Sets: Snapshot, So You Papers: Pool Party, Flashback Designer Series Paper Inks: Tuxedo Black Memento Accessories: Stampin’ Dimensionals
There’s more! I liked this card so much that I created a video to share more about it. I’ll be sharing that video tomorrow. Please come back. 🙂
