Hi everyone! Happy Satur-YAY! It's Carissa with you here today. I'm so glad you've stopped by today. I'm celebrating the weekend by getting my craft on. I have a project featuring lots of layers and the beautiful new Stitched Together United We Flourish stamp set from Waffle Flower and Essentials By Ellen.
It was my goal to create a lovely layered effect, without my card getting too bulky for mailing. I did this by layering directly on my card base. I also combined stamping and patterned papers in to my layering, which are great ways to add layers and not increase the bulk of your card.
The Stitched Together Stamp Set is a stamp layering stamp set. There are several stamps that, when layered together, give you a beautiful stitched floral globe image. I love that these stamps are easy to line up. In fact, I didn't even have a layering guide when I stamped this and I was able to nestle these stamps right in to each other and create a beautiful layered stamped image.
I did add some dimension to my card by stacking up several plain white die cuts behind my stamped globe image. This is a great way to add dimension and give your stamped piece a very substantial feel on the front of your card.
Be sure to check out today's video tutorial below. I'll be walking you through the creation of this card and give you some tips and tricks along the way.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you've enjoyed this project and I hope it has inspired you to create something handmade on this beautiful Satur-YAY! If you make something today, be sure to tag us and use #EllenHutsonSaturYAY so we can see what you're up to.
Until next time, I hope you have a fabulous day!
