Labels Collection Framelits – Thoughts and Prayers

I could not do without the Stampin’ Up! Labels Collection Framelits, as well as all of the Stampin’ Up!’s framelits, as well as the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.  To me, the Labels Collection Framelits and all of the other framelits are must-have tools for creating paper crafts. The Labels Collection Framelits may be designed to cut certain stamp cut images, but they certainly may be used for other purposes.

The card share for you today features the Labels Collection Framelits and Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set.  To use the  Labels Collection Framelits, you will need the Big Shot, its multipurpose platform (Tab 1), and standard cutting pads.  Below are instructions for making this card.

Stamping Multiple Card Stock Layers – Guneaux Designs

Stamping multiple card stock layers is a hot trend in the paper crafting world.  I created a card featuring the trend of stamping multiple card stock layers for an acquaintance who was diagnosed recently with breast cancer.  I wanted to send her a card to let her know that I care and am praying for her.  Therefore, I decided to use this technique of stamping multiple card stock layers for her card.

Everyone knows that the outcome of stamping multiple card stock layers would leave gaps in the stamped images, right?  Additionally, the result will be less than the aspired goal, which is to have a pretty card.  Agree?

Well, there is a method to use; however, you’ll still have gaps, but let’s see what we can do with those gaps.  Follow these instructions to use this technique:

1.  Cut pieces of Whisper White Card Stock according to this picture:

2.  Layer the Whisper White Card Stock according to the following picture.  You’ll need to use a temporary glue on the backside of the two top layers to prevent them from moving as you stamp the images.

3.  Using a single inked stamp, randomly stamp the image around the multiple card stock layers.

4.  Disassemble the three pieces of card stock.

5.  Cut two pieces of colored card stock that match your ink (your choice) of a size to form mats for the top two layers.

6.  Assemble the pieces and your gaps will appear as intended, and you’ll have a beautiful card, like this one.
