Double Layer Stamping With Painted Seasons Stamp Set

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Painted Seasons Stamp Set double layer stamping technique, Coastal Cabana, Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron

Hello everyone! Long time no see, hey?

I’ve been MIA due to multiple sclerosis (that’s a surprise, right hahaha). I had a major MS relapse two months ago when I lost control over my body, or I should rather say over the right-hand side of my body. I couldn’t walk, write (I am right-handed) or brush my teeth. Thank God for hubby and electric toothbrushes! I didn’t even feel my right cheek, seriously.

After a few series of steroids (5 days) and time, time and more time, I can finally do most of the things on my own. Maybe except walking outside – still need hubby’s hand in that matter. But I can finally create! Woohoo! I so missed my inks and stamps. And I have some serious delays in sending customers ‘thank yous’. In sorting ATM!

There’s one thing that MS has thought me for sure: PATIENCE!

I know it’s with a slight delay, as Sale-a-bration just ended. But I really wanted to share with you these two beauties I created using a free stamp set from SAB exclusive Painted Seasons Bundle.

How cute are these, right? And so easy to make. Both are created with a double layer stamping technique and involved some fussy-cutting.

First, I prepared my Very Vanilla double layers and stamped them with my chosen ink pads: Poppy Parade with Pear Pizzazz for a floral card, and Coastal Cabana, Soft Sea Foam and So Saffron ink pads for a succulent one.

Once my double layers were stamped I mount them on to coordinating cardstock panels: Pear Pizzazz and Coastal Cabana.

Next, I adhered them to the card bases. For the floral card, I’ve used the same cardstock for a card base: Pear Pizzazz.

But for a succulent card, I decided to use Soft Sea Foam cardstock for a base instead of Coastal Cabana.

Vellum to the rescue

Because I’ve made some ‘booboos’ while stamping my panels, as my hands are not fully working yet,  I needed to ‘hide’ these. So I cut a square from vellum, briefly 4″ x 4″, cut it in half, and when assembling both cards, I adhered these vellum triangles where needed. Mistakes? What mistakes?! haha

Adding more details

I took a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock stamped few flowers, leaves and succulents in corresponding colours and fussy-cut all my florals and foliage with paper snips.  Quite easy and fun, and great exercise for my hands too.

Because the Painted Seasons Stamp Set comes with images only it opens up endless possibilities as to what sentiment stamps to use.

For my cards, I decided to use Well Said Cling Stamp Set.

Assembling the cards

First, I took my vellum triangles and my fussy-cut florals and tried few arrangments before I decided where to stuck things down permanently.

I adhered vellum pieces, flush to the edges of my cards, and placed the adhesive strategically where I knew it will be covered by my fussy-cut elements.

Next, I adhered each of the elements and my sentiments, and I call it done. I have to admit, I’m quite pleased with these cards.
