Lori: I love the versatility of this stamp, but wish it came with more than book related sentiments! I borrowed one from the Altenew Leaf Canopy set instead. Used two shades of gray and a black mat for this. On the lighter gray, I masked the stamp area, then stamped the background with Altenew Pinstripe background stamp. Then I stamped the Book Club stamp in the masked area in the same color – Altenew Charcoal Suit. I colored the flowers lightly with colored pencils and smoothed with gamsol.
Devyn: I’m still not comfortable with coloring big spaces, so I think when you need a really simple card, I feel heat embossing is the way to go. My cardstock base is Gina K Designs Kraft and I heat embossed it with Nuvo Glacier White Fine Detail. It was challenging to find a sentiment to fit in that circle, this ‘Thinking of you’ from Justrite Large Fancy Sentiments fit just right I stamped that in Jet Black Amalgam ink.
