Happy Little Stampers Case The Designer April 2016...Sending Hugs and Happy Thoughts



Hello and happy April.  I'm here to post a card for Happy Little Stampers Case the Designer challenge.

This month, I am providing the inspiration card, and I used a partial coloring technique to add interest to my card while keeping it very Clean and Simple.

I started with Beautiful Day stamps from Altenew.  I just love these flowers, and how the multi-step layers let me I can get the look of coloring without actually coloring.

I started by stamping just the outline images onto a card front.  I then cut out the center of my card front using a stitched rectangle die.  I made sure that some of each image would extend beyond my center cut out.



Then I stamped the colored layers only on the middle section of my card.  You could also do this with any stamp, even if it were not a multi-step stamp, by simply only coloring the middle section.


Finally, I put the card front back together, and popped up the middle with fun foam.  

Our challenge will run for the entire month of April.  I hope you will play along.  Please head over to the Happy Little Stampers Case the Designers blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the design team.

Thanks for Visiting
