When Emma first suggested we design “no-stamping” projects for our next Super-Awesome Fun Time Card Kit, I was skeptical. How fun could these projects be? As I’ve been designing the projects, though, I’ve had loads of fun with the concept. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I made a no-stamping project to share with you today – lots of layers of gorgeous cardstock and Designer Series Paper but no stamping. Here’s my card:
How sweet is this bear?! If I ran across this guy in the woods, I’d definitely feel honored that he waved to me. I’d offer him a cup of tea, and we’d chat for hours on end. I cropped this bear from one of the pages in the Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper using a Stitched Rectangles Die – the leaves, the trees, the bear and the butterfly all come from one design in the paper. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper:
The bear and butterfly are found on the fifth page in the graphic above (he’s tucked in the bottom, left corner of that page. So cute! The 1/2″ So Saffron strips in the background are pulled from the other side of that same page of paper. Oh! But I didn’t stop there! I also snipped a tree from that page of paper and glued it inside the card with a fun sentiment that celebrates the waving bear. Here’s a look at the inside of my card:
The happy “HEY” inside the card is an extension of the waving bear on the outside. I heat embossed this sentiment from Amazing Phrasing with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cropped it with one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies.
Amazing Phrasing is a super-fun photopolymer stamp set that’s available with a $100 order during Sale-a-Bration in July and August. Here’s a look at this amazing stamp set:
I love the warm colors in this pack of papers. The pieces I chose feature a lot of the beautiful browns and yellows in the paper. If you like this mix of Sahara Sand, So Saffron and Soft Suede as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
