Today’s sample is from the holiday swap cards, and features the Rooted In Nature stamp set from the annual catalog. This card features a repeated image to create the scene for our focal point. It also follows one of my stamping rules. Keep the your cards simple with a trio of colors, and you will find stamping success.
Card Sample by Marie Weaver
Marie Weaver created this card. She is a Stampin’ Up! Ind. Demo from Flint, MI. Here repeated trees are lovely, and the added sprig and leaf punches from the coordinating cardstock and vellum are a very nice embellishment. The Lovely Lipstick ribbon matches the color of ink for the sentiment. This is a Season’s Greetings card, but it would make a lovely winter birthday card as well.
Repeat Stamping Technique
- Choose your stamp, the evergreen tree for this sample.
- Start with the lightest color of ink.
- Stamp the image with full ink, and then stamp again without inking. (stamp and stamp off)
- Repeat step 3, leaving space between your images.
- Then with the darker ink, stamp the image again, overlapping with your first round of tree images.
