Our team challenge this week for Outlines Rubber Stamp, is Simply Square; that is to use squares somewhere on our card. Please stop by and visit the rest of the incredibly talented team and see what they have created for you.
Those of you who follow my blog posts know that I love tall cards, so I jumped at the chance to make a tall card with my square stamps. First I decided what color scheme I wanted to use; I settled on mint green, lavender and fuchsia (not pink, lol) and black for framing. Next I hunted through my collection of stamps and picked out E-400 Balloon Bouquet Sq. Large, C-238 Happy, C-239 Birthday and E-401 Candles Sq. Large.
I stamped the word stamps on all 3 colors of card stock, then trimmed the outer two rectangles off the fuchsia, the outer rectangle off the lavender and used all the mint rectangles as the base. For the larger squares, I stamped them on mint and fuchsia, trimming the outer square off the lavender stampings. I then stamped the larger squares onto Cryogen paper and trimmed just the inner square out to color. I picked Copics that coordinated with the paper: RV13, RV17, BV01, BV04, G00, G02, Y13, YR04, YR18 and BG0000 for the background.
Using dimensional tape, I popped up each of the layers before mounting them on the card base. You can see the wonderful dimension on the pic at the right, click on it for a closer look.
Again, I have created a wonderful card using only stamps and card stock. No fancy paper needed. Finished size is 4 x 9.25 inches; it fits a standard No 10 Business envelope.
