Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March Blog Hop Day 2: Borders and Backgrounds

Welcome to Day 2 of March Blog Hops. Today we are featuring Borders and Backgrounds Stamps and coordinated dies.
 



  • Stamp set includes 5 images
  • Set measures approximately 6" x 4"
  • Images measure approximately 5.5" wide
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland

This is the project I have for you today. When I first saw this set, I thought it could be great for masculine designs, I don't why, just my silly brain and ideas. Anyway, I tried this combo I have never done "Dark Gray + Gold" and then I thought it could be great for "Graduation".  What do you think?

Here are the details:
  • Cut a piece of Dark Gray cardstock: 7" x 8", folded in half to get a 7" x 4" card.
  • Cut a piece Gold Cardstock 6.75" x 3.75". Center the die and die-cut.
  • Stamp coordinated image on front card in Versamark ink, add gold embossing powder and heat set.
  • Stamp sentiment from Flower Blocks 1 on Ivory Cardstock in Coffee Archival Ink, add it to die-cut piece and add stitches.
  • Add die-cut window piece to card with dimensionals.
  • Add a couple of black of rhinestones to sentiment.

  2. Very pretty. I'll have to remember this technique when I get my set of dies and stamps. It would be very versatile - make it fun and crazy or elegant like you did with your card - depending on the paper you put behind the cut. thanks for the idea.
