Thanks for stopping by today! If you've come from Catherine's blog, you're in the right place!
Are you totally counting the hours until this SOA release? Cause if you're not....you totally need to be. Folks, if you purchase this SOA collection, you will never need another birthday or party stamp set ever again. Get on the waitlist here.
So let's get right to the cards cause I'm sure you're already chomping at the bit to get the collection and you just want to see the cards!
The first card today incorporates a favorite technique of mine--foiling! I used a CP stencil and applied transfer gel with a palette knife before running it through my laminator to create the colorful background. And I then used some surprise items from the collection along with some CP inks and and created the card panel by using the sentiments from Woo Hoo! stamp set in the SOA collection. I also filled in the background with smaller images. You can use these images in lots of different ways to fit whatever occasion you're needing a card for! You can trim down any stamped panel and put it on a background to kick things up a notch.
This stamp set is so versatile with all the different color schemes you can incorporate. I stamped out the images and then die cut them and set them aside. I cut a 4.25 in. 5.5 in. card panel and used a 2nd generation stamping technique to create the background. I then used the Bordering Sweet die to cut several layers of white cardstock and then adhered that on to the bottom of the card. To finish off the card, I put my teapot and teacup images on to the card by adhering foam tape on to the back of them, and that will help you make the image pop off the card!
