#SimpleStamping Saturday with Be Dazzling Nothing’s Better Than. It’s Saturday morning again already, so it is time for #SimpleStamping Saturday and I have some really fun projects to share with you today. I have used the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set as the main focus, but I have added some surprises along the way too.
My first version is very simple stamping, following a Rainbow for my colour choices, sticking with the Brights Colour Family, other than the pink, which is Magenta Madness from the 2020 – 2022 InColors. For the words I used ink pads, but for the colours on the cocktail I decided to use Stampin’ Write Markers.
As you can see, using the markers gives more texture to the colour as it is less thick. This was the look I was hoping for, but if you want a more ‘solid’ finish, you may be better off using ink pads.
First Stepped Up Version
As in previous weeks, I have added full sheets of card to this version, as well as using Stampin’ Blends for the colouring. I added a line of Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend around the image, which helps to trick the brain into thinking that it is popped up.
You probably noticed that the main addition for this version is the Be Dazzling paper from the Sale-a-Bration brochure. Of course this means that it is FREE, which is my favourite price! I will let you in on a secret though….I die cut the Stitched So Sweetly layer for the next card from the middle of the mat on the card! Waste not want not!!!
Second Stepped Up Version
Which brings us nicely to the final version and the aforementioned Sweetly Stitched die cut. I added a second die cut from a piece of Basic White with some Magenta Madness added using a Blending Brush and one of the Plenty of Patterns Masks.
I coloured some of the Be Dazzling paper, being careful not to damage the brush tip, before die cutting the words from it using the Love You More Than Dies, which I also used for the cocktail glass and shaded the edge with Light Smoky Slate again. The words are all added flat to the ‘pretty’ elements, so I have popped up the ‘pretty’ elements for more impact.
On the inside of both stepped up versions, I have added more Be Dazzling, with added rainbow!
