The cards I’ve been making with the SCT Sampler this September involve a lot of layering and a definite multi-media look, which were inspired by the products in the kit. Specifically, the Beautiful Things collection by BoBunny. You can see the products on the card in the image below. Also included in the kit are samples from the Simple Stories collection Let’s Go, which has a travel theme. I’ll save that for later. Keep in mind that the subscription to the SCT Sampler provides samples of items from the collections. Therefore, not everyone will get the exact same papers or ephemera. As far as I know, the stamps and dies are the same for everyone. It is a great way to build up your supplies if you are just starting out, but it’s also a wonderful way to get fresh inspiration each month regardless of where you are in this hobby.
Today, you can see I’m using pink and black as my main colors with splashes of green and tan. The paper is from the BoBunny collection mentioned above. It’s called, “Painterly,” and it’s a 12″ x 12″ sheet of paper. The front side features raspberries and the back side is the black and white pattern you see. I simply cut a 1.5″ x 5.5″ strip off of the sheet and flipped it over before adhering it to the 4.25″ by 5.5″ piece for the background.
I used some Versa Fine Onyx Black ink to stamp the butterfly using my Stamping Platform by We R Memory Keepers, which I love. It’s small enough to make it easy to work with and it has hinges that allow me to use clear or cling stamps without having to remove anything or switch anything around.
Next, I am adding some distress ink to the back of a piece of ephemera. I didn’t like the image of the insect on the front, so I repurposed it! This is the Spun Sugar. I’ll go around the edges with the Antique Linen.
Next, I’ll assemble the card by layering the pieces on top of each other in a visually appealing way.
Then, I’ll adhere everything down and add some of those little enamel dots.
I did choose to add some splashes of ink…a very light shade of pink and some pops of color in the shade of “Snowflake”.
Finally, it was time to adhere the card to the cardbase, which is 110lb cardstock by Neenah…the solar white.
I hope this post inspire you to create a beautiful thing!
