I set myself a challenge – use one stamp set from Hero Arts, to make 3 wedding cards in different styles, all on a white card base. I wanted to start out slightly complicated, and gradually CASify!!
My task was made a little easier, because I had a heap of goodies from Gossamer Blue’s Main Kit for March, as well as their March Life Pages kit to play with! I also used this gorgeous stamp set from Hero Arts:
With this card, I tried to use more product but keep it looking not too busy. I used 2 stamps, 2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments and some Copic Markers. I think it looks interesting without being overdone.
(OK, I’ll ‘fess up. I had originally made another card where I took the
idea “more is more” and ran with it – I ended up with a hot mess.
Seriously bad. I mean SERIOUSLY BAAAAAD. I was going to post it, but
the more I looked at it, the more horrified I was with it. I had to bin it. And before you say, “it can’t have been THAT bad”, yes, yes, it could.)
I wanted to go a bit more subtle and quiet for my next card. I used a few journalling cards from the Gossamer Blue Life Pages kit, as well as some stickers and that oh-so-cool ampersand paper clip. 1 stamp, 1 embellishment, 2 patterned papers and some stickers.
I selectively inked up the “MR. AND MRS.” stamp from Hero Arts’ “Best Wishes” clear set to avoid getting ink on the word “and”.
For my last card, I wanted to go very CAS. I like this one the best (by a long shot!) – in my opinion, less is definitely more 🙂 1 patterned paper, 1 stamp, 1 embellishment hanging from gold and white twine.
