#SimpleStamping Saturday Featuring Be Jolly. Here is today’s #SimpleStamping Saturday trio of projects. Today I am featuring the Be Jolly Stamp Set. It is just so cute, I couldn’t stop myself.
Today I am starting with a Basic White Note Card and Envelope. I have stamped the images in Tuxedo Black Ink, some of them ‘hanging’ off the left edge of the Note Card. So I didn’t stamp on the back of the Note Card, I simply masked it with a Sticky Note.
I coloured the images using both sets of Watercolour Pencils and then moved the pigment around using one of the Blender Pens. These are amazing, and seem to last for ever!
How could you resist that face! Oh, and of course, I stamped the little robin on the front of the envelope too. No naked envelopes here!
Stepped Up Version
For my first stepped up version I stamped the same images, but this time on a separate piece of Basic White Card. I coloured them in the same basic colours as before, but this time using Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut each of the images with no white margin.
The snow bank is simply a piece of Snowy White paper, which has that wonderful flocked texture, with the curves hand cut. I layered this on a piece of Misty Moonlight, before adding that to a Thick Basic White card base.
I didn’t feel this needed anything more, so it is actually quite a simple card to replicate, assuming you enjoy fussy cutting !
Further Stepped Up Version
My final version has a piece of basic white in place of the Misty Moonlight card from the previous version. The obvious difference is that I have used my Blending Brushes to build up colour. My plan was that this should end up looking like the Aurora Borealis.
I did rather over do the flecks of water, which are there to represent stars, but I still like it. I think it gives the look I was after, which was to CASE one of the projects in the Mini Catalogue.
To add a little sparkle, I did add a few flecks of Clear Wink of Stella. It is the perfect addition to any Christmas project, and that is why it is my Ordering Special this month.
Of course I now need to know which your favourite of these projects is. Please let me know in the comments at the bottom of this page.
