Hello stampers. Have you seen the new selection of freebies for our annual Saleabration event? There has been so much hype about the Painted Seasons bundle (with good cause) that All Adorned is waiting patiently in the shadows. This set was created specifically to work beautifully with the stamparatus. I chose to make my cards in night of navy and granny apple green. I absolutely love those two colours together. These cards came about because I was playing with the set before looking at anything online. I wanted to see what would happen when I used different sized squares. I started with a four inch square, then a 3 1/2″ square and finally a 3″ square. They all work great for different effects.
This was the last card I made but the first square I stamped. It is the four inch square. What is nice about this design is that it leaves a nice amount of white space in the middle that fits and image and a sentiment. I used Artfully Aware, the magnificent set designed by Janet Wakeland in honour of her mom who is struggling with Alzheimer’s. My four inch panel is mounted on a 4 1/4 inch granny apple green card.
This was the second square I made and it is 3 1/2″. The saying and the hearts are also from All Adorned. I also stamped the night of navy cardstock tone on tone for a subtle effect. With the stamparatus you can just turn your cardstock ninety degrees each time for perfect placement.
This card uses the last square I stamped, it is the three inch one. In this square all the stamped images touch each other. Don’t you just love the different looks? I can only imagine that it would look magnificent embossed in silver, gold, copper or black! I used the Blends to colour the clear epoxy droplet. The background is the beautiful new embossing folder Country Floral that you can also get for free with a $60 purchase in Canada until March 31, 2019. My picture isn’t as clear as I would like, but no time for a redo!! My eyes have definitely seen better days. Glasses are not too far off I think. Or maybe I shouldn’t be taking pictures before breakfast!!
This card uses the stamp set All Adorned in a different way. You simply stamp the image with the stamparatus in granny apple green, then stamp the coordinating image in night of navy and move the plate up the hinge two notches to stamp again. The small circle image connects that larger images and is also great for covering any smudges that may have happened from inky fingers!!
I hope you have enjoyed this sampling of cards using All Adorned. You can see what a beautiful crisp image it makes that can be easily repeated using the stamparatus.
