Hello and HI, Everyone! I have two fun cards to share today using some goodies from The Stamp Market. I know I have been sharing quite a bit from them lately. It’s mainly because I bought some stuff from them a month or so ago, and it’s been sitting on my desk on the top of my unused stash. Or at least that stack of unused stash – there’s a lot of it all over the place. But I always hope that I’ll randomly see something laying around and have some sudden inspiration. The Stamp Market also just came out with a new release that looks really amazing. The Rainbow Surprise Die looks sooo fun.

The Stamp Market – Floral Layering Stencil (see note below)
Making the First Card
This card was super easy and quick to make. But first – the stencil. This layering stencil was a freebie with my last order. It may have been a special they were having for Mother’s Day. I looked on their site, and I don’t see this specific layering stencil for sale. But they do have a lot of other floral layering stencils, and this design most certainly would work with anything. I used Distress Inks to ink blend this design. Once I was finished, I trimmed the panel down, mounted it onto a white A2 card base, and then glued the Big Hi outline that I had cut from turquoise card stock. This outline is layered on top of 3 layers of white outlines that I had also cut out. The Big Hi Die cuts both the solid Hi and the outline at once, which offers a great two-for-one opportunity. I finished the card with some jewels in the center of the flowers.

Making the Second Card
My second card actually started several weeks ago when I had a little hot foiling session with this Plaid plate and several other plates in my stash. The results have been laying around since then, but this panel finally got used! When I ordered this plate, I saw the plaid stencil that they sell with it, but I thought I was really smart (AKA frugal) by not ordering it. I figured I could just use some washi tape to create some lines and ink blend my stripes that way. Of course, after the order, I realized that you can’t put tape on a hot foiled panel, or it will pull up the foil! I solved it by making my own “stencil” using some vellum and really long sentiment strip dies from my stash. This definitely worked! I used the same yellow, pink, and green Distress Inks that I used on my first card.
Once I was done inking up more of a plaid design, I remembered that I have these strip dies in my stash, so I thought I would add more texture and more plaid! All that was missing was a huge HI, which is the other part of what I had created from the first card. The first card has the outline – this one has the solid part. And again, the turquoise is layered on top of 3 white layers for dimension. I finished the card by scattering some clear sequins around the design.
That’s it for my cards today. Thank you so much for visiting! Leave a comment to let me know which card you like the best.
