Stamp-a-Stack #1

We had a really nice day on Saturday at my annual Spring Stamp-a-Stack. I created 10 card designs and then you can make 10, 20 or 30 of these all occasion cards in one day. I wanted to share a few of my designs here this week.

This one, I think, was every one's favorite!! It is one of my favorite sets from TAC called, 'Beautiful Day'. I used the Scor-pal to make a gate card on Matchmakers white core paper. It is so easy .... just line the card up on the left fence and score at the two dots! Now how easy is that. It meets perfectly in the center of the card when folded every time! Then on the inside front of the card I put the crease from the gate card on 3 5/8", which is the first arrow, and scored at the 4, 4 1/4 and 4 1/2" lines. I did this on both sides and then sanded it from the front side to make the lines pop. I added stamped flowers from the set, colored with watercolor crayons and mounted them on pink Matchmaker paper. Then we glued the top and bottom one on the left side of the card and the middle one on the right to make the cute closing.

On the inside we stamped the birds at the bottom and colored them with watercolor crayons also. I love all of the words from this set and how you can stamp the accent word in a different color so easily! I added grass to them by using little lines of two or three colors of green under them. The words on the front and the back are stamped in Burnt Umber with the scripted word in Claret for accent. Sorry the last picture is a little blurry.

Thanks for stopping by and Be blessed today!!
