Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – Lots and Lots of Layered Cards
A couple of weeks ago, I had an hour or so free one evening, but wasn’t sure what to craft or make. So I decided to break out my Petal Garden DSP stack and just play.
This was the result of an hour’s work!
First, I selected the papers I wanted to use. I went for those that were Rich Razzleberry dominant because that’s the cardstock I wanted to use. These kinds of layered cards work best with deep dark colours as their base. So RR was the right one for me.
Once I’d decided the papers, I chose 10 different ones to work as the main background, got them cut and set to one side.
After that, it was simply chop and slice and dice. I don’t really have any particular technique, and I don’t follow sketches (I feel like I’m doing it ‘wrong’ for some reason!). But I do sort of hover the pieces of paper over the cardblank to see if I like the size of them.
Basically I chop up rectangles and squares and run with it!
So these are 5 different layouts, with 2 of each, and I love them!
Oh and the stamping? I had all the cards made before I decided on the stamps and felt that Thankful Thoughts was a great set to use. The sizes were about right and they made a great batch of cards to have on hand ready.
Hope you like them!
