Cutting Your Stamped Images to Create Different Looks | Jenny Colacicco

Hello there all, it's Jenny here!  Today I'm using some of the products from the recent October 2020 Slimline release, and I'll show you how to get two different looks from the same stamp set. - I'm featuring the You Are My Favorite stamp, stencil and coordinating die!

To create my card, I stamped the You Are My Favorite stamp three times on a panel of white cardstock in black ink using my Memory MISTI.   I then used the You Are My Favorite Stencil to color in each arrangement in different coordinating colors with Pinkfresh Studio inks and blending.  For the first image I used Peach Fuzz and Clementine inks, for the second I used Sunshine and Lemon Whip inks, and for the third I used Sparkling Rose and Ballet Slipper inks.  For all of the leaves on each image I used Mint.

I should note the stencil is designed to be a little whimsical in its alignment as you can see from this close up. I love the shading you can achieve  with it!  I die cut all three of the arrangements out with the coordinating You Are My Favorite die.  

For my background I used the Inverted Diamond stencil. I ink blended it with Mint ink and went around the edges with Aquamarine ink, blending about half way towards the centre. I then trimmed it out to create a 9.25 " x 4.25" card panel.

To arrange my florals, I took each die cut and adhered it to my card panel with a layer or two of foam squares, trimming off the excess each time and then keeping it to one side.   I finished with a white heat embossed sentiment and scattered a few crystals to finish, then added to a notecard. 

I  had a lot of the offcuts left from my first card, and decided to use them to create a second card! 

For the background, I used the Simple Plaid Layering stencil.  The inks I used were Doe and Passion Fruit for something a little more 'vintage'.  I die cut the panel out with the Slim Diagonal Stitch Rectangles.  I also used these to create a slime line frame with mirror gold cardstock which I adhered over the top.

I adhered the floral off cuts to the panel with foam layers as before, trimming off some of the excess, and letting other parts hang off the edge.  I then mounted the panel to a white notecard. 

The sentiment is Hey Gorgeous from an earlier release, which I die cut from white cardstock and gold mirror, then layered together before popping into the centre on foam squares. I just love this font with these florals! And, of course I added a few more jewels to finish.

I hope this gives you some inspiration on how you can cut up your larger stamps to create different looks and arrangements.  Have a wonderful day.

Jenny
