SYOPP--Stamp Your Own Patterned Paper
My Stampin' Up! demo friend, Jennifer Merle-Hamscher hosts Mystery Stamping every month. Last week, she walked us through stamping our own patterned paper and 2 cards using the paper we stamped.
If you'd like to join us next month, she can be found at Whispers in Ink. Mystery Stamping is the second Friday of the month in her Mystery Card Night and Games group. This is what I created--6 cards! I even remembered to stamp the inner layer and my envelopes.
I sent my sister a photo of what I was working on, so I just pulled this photo from Facebook. I forgot to take a better photo before I cut it up.
I used Starry Sky, Bermuda Bay and Flirty Flamingo ink with the Artistically Inked and Botanical Layers stamp sets. I did add a few more flowers on the small pieces before adding them to the cards. Do what works for your projects!
A few tips on SYOPP:
-use at least 3 colors, or 3 variations of a color (by stamping off)
Jen walked us through creating these first 2 cards--a diagonal easel card and a bridge card. Our color coordination makes these cards pretty easy to make.
Can you see that I embossed the Starry Sky cardstock with the stripes embossing folder from the pair, Stripes & Splatters 3D folders? They can be found on page 177 in the annual catalog.
