How Versatile Can One Stamp Set Be???

Hi there and a very Happy New Year to you all!

Over the next week while I am still on holidays from work I am hoping to post quite a few new things for you – particularly a few scrapbook layouts that I have had so much fun creating recently! Stamping really does open up a whole new world of handmade embellishments – no need to stop by the craft shop every two seconds when you have a few simple supplies on hand!

I created these cards and scrapbook pages for a December Workshop and I think they really highlight how versatile one stamp set (life’s a breeze) can be with a little change of colour and stamp choice…

It all started with a 12 x 12 layout set around some gorgeous photos of Laurenz I have been itching to scrap…

 

Pacific Point, Summer Sun and Whisper White

 

My scrapping style is definitely “simple with clean lines” – It think this is probably a result of mostly scrapping pictures of my two boys – I love the shabby and antique looks that are so popular but when I combine these with pictures of the bruisers, it just doesn’s add up!

After completing this layout, I went ahead to create a 9 x 9 layout to demo at my workshop, along with a boys birthday card…

Using the same colour combo as the 12 x 12 layout, I’ve played around with placement of the images, and added a little Pacific Point DSP to the scrapbook layout as added interest…

For my birthday card, I’ve used the Schoolbook Serif Alphabet Stamp Set with the sentiment from the bottom of one of the Fun and Fast Notes Stamps (stamped on the edge of the stamp pad so that only the sentiment is inked)… The effect is a card wishing “Six happy birthdya wishes) – I now have a template to use for any age – and as you can see below – girl or boy!

For my girls card, I have used a colour combo of Pretty in Pink, Whisper White and Riding Hood Red on the Kraft Card Base.  I’ve girlied the sentiment up a little by stamping on the edge of the Life’s a Breeze sentiment to only ink the scroll and of course chosen a different combination of images.

Basically what I have here is a template for my kids birthday cards this year – mixing colours and possibly stamp sets to come up with any age or sex – as I play with my template I will post each new combo for you…
