Today, I made a collage out of stamped and die cut images. I had fun arranging the pieces on the card. You can hardly go wrong! I stamped the lighthouse in Night of Navy Ink onto Very Vanilla Card Stock and cut it out with the matching Smooth Sailing Die. I stamped the anchor in Soft Suede Ink onto Soft Suede Card Stock and cut it out with its matching die. I stamped a sentiment in Soft Suede onto Very Vanilla and cut it out with the stitched label die. I also cut a Very Vanilla Stitched Nestled Label and I stamped the compass rose directly onto it in Night of Navy. I cut the ship's wheel from Sahara Sand Card Stock. Here's how it looks, all assembled.
Did you notice the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine? I tied that directly onto the label.
For the background, I adhered a 3-3/4" by 5" piece of striped Come Sail Away DSP to a 4" by 5-1/4" Night of Navy Card Stock panel, and then onto a Balmy Blue Card Stock card base.
Were you looking for the Tuesday Protip? Well, I used tons of Stampin' Dimensionals to build my collage. In fact, I nearly ran out of them on this sheet.
But wait! There are still some on there! I use every last bit of my Stampin' Dimensionals. I cut the hexagons into individual dimensionals and I save the sides for adhering odd-shaped pieces. Look!
Another supply-conserving Protip! You're welcome!
Tomorrow I'll be playing in a blog challenge. Come back and see what I've made!
And now a word from our sponsor. Stampin' Up has TWO amazing promotions going on right now. The first is July Bonus Days: for every $50 you spend before July 31 (before shipping and tax), you will earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that can be used August 1–31. How cool is that?
The second promotion gives you Extra, Extra Stampin' Up merchandise when you join my team during July or August. The cost of the new demonstrator starter kit is $99--but from now until August 31, new demonstrators will receive an additional $30--which means you can put $155 of any Stampin' Up merch you'd like in your new demonstrator starter kit. And the month after you sign up, you’ll receive a $10 coupon code to spend the following month.
Contact me today for details about either of these offers!
