Hello and welcome! I’m stamping up some cute designs exclusive to the Not 2 Shabby Shop today. For my first card I used the set called “You, Me and Pumpkin Spice.” I love the little squirrels in this set as well as all the fabulous fall images. On my second card I used “Fall Gnomes.” It includes two of the cutes gnome images I’ve ever seen.
Card #1: Stamped Pattern Paper Card
One of my all time favorite techniques is stamping out my own pattern paper. Not only is it fun, but it allows you to use all of the images from your set on one card. I stamped my images onto a piece of kraft cardstock using Fallen Leaves brown ink. This is a pigment ink, so you almost always get a crisp stamping without the use of the stamp positioner. I wanted my squirrels to really stand out from the kraft cardstock, so I stamped them onto a piece of white cardstock and colored them in with colored pencils.
Card #2: Row Stamping Slimline Card
For my slimline card I pulled out my stamp positioner to stamp out the gnome several times. I used the same Fallen Leaves brown ink, and I stamped it onto a piece of light brown cardstock. I cut out this panel using a slimline die set from Trinity Stamps. I stamped the gnome in the middle first, so I could make sure he was centered, and then I shifted my paper along the bottom edge of my stamp positioner 1 1/4 inches on each side and stamped 4 more gnomes.
For the gnome that I colored in, I stamped him onto a piece of white cardstock. I used more colored pencils and fussy cut him out. I popped him up with foam adhesive as well as the sentiment. This slimline card measures 8 1/2 by 3 1/2.
Here is my process video. You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.
