This week I want to share some cards and projects using our newest stamp sets that were released this year. The first one is Love Letters Vol 1 stamp set:
This collection is a combination of postcard and letter elements along with romantic vintage images. These stamps could be used for so many projects... from Valentine's Day cards, Wedding cards, Anniversary cards, and the images could also be used as a part of mixed media projects, vintage tags and more. Here's some ideas on how to use them:
For this card I've used Alcohol Inks for the background, then stamped the image over the top with Archival Jet Black inkpad. The quote was stamped and stapled to the torn tag and adhered to the card with foam adhesive. I've also used the postmark stamp on the actual folded card just to give it some extra detail.
Here's a card created by Godelieve using the 'Gent with Flowers' stamp:
How charming does this guy look! Godelieve has used the Roses Photostamp for a background and stamped the Post Card and Postmark stamp at the top. The Gent was then added, along with the little quote.
These images would also look fabulous coloured in with Marvy Le Plumes or Copics, or stamped on top of a Distress Ink Background. The people could also be cut out from their background and used alone or as another layer on top. Lots of different ideas!!
