#SimpleStamping Saturday – So Hoppy Together. Welcome to the next in my series of #simplestamping projects. Today I am using the really cute So Hoppy Together stamps from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure. I can’t believe I have not inked this set up much yet, it is such fun.
My #simplestamping version uses just one ink pad (Memento Tuxedo Black) and some Stampin’ Write Markers (all from the Brights Collection). It is just a fun little note card that would be perfect to send to anyone. I have not added a sentiment on the inside, but could when I send it. I often leave the inside of my cards blank. This means I can add an appropriate sentiment depending on the occasion I am using it for when I send it. As ever, although I call this my #simplestamping version, it is also my Quick version.
The Casual version of the card adds coloured card, a punch and some Glitter Enamel Dots, but the rest of the card is exactly the same. I did add some additional stamping to place the punched image on. There was no additional ink pad, I just used the side of the brush end of the Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up the stamp. You do know you can do that, don’t you? Just make sure to only use the side of the marker to protect the tip. Using your markers to ink up your stamps is a great way to extend the colours you can stamp with.
The Avid version of the card adds some Designer Series Paper and die cuts. I also fussy cut the frogs and changed one for a mirror image of the other. I have posted and had a video about this in my Top Tip Tuesday series. In the previous post on this I used the Stamparatus. This time I just stamped (carefully) on a slick surface and then lay the card over the image and rubbed gently. The key is to ink your stamp well, move fast and don’t smudge the image. The die cut and paper come from the Tropical Chic Suite in the Annual Catalogue.
BUT, next month you will be able to buy dies that match the So Hoppy Together stamp set, so no more fussy cutting of frogs! One of the dies is a lily pad, and was the inspiration for the leaf I used. I added the classic label punch for the ‘Hey…’, but you could cut this by hand. This time I used Stampin’ Blends for the colouring.
Oh, and in case you are wondering, the pink in the cardstock pack I have chosen is Blushing Bride. I know I have used Flirty Flamingo for the butterfly, but there is so little of it I am happy it works. Using Flirty Flamingo meant that I restricted the Stampin’ Write Markers to just one Family.
