Monday, May 31.....Stamp With Shel....Garden Wishes & Dandy Garden - a fun fold and a blast from the past....

 Hey, Hey, Hey Stampers!  Happy Monday to you all! 

Today I have a bit of simple stamping inspiration for you....and it is a fun fold too!  

I created this card using the Garden Wishes stamp set found on page 22 of the Annual Catalog and the coordinating Dandy Wishes dies found on page 162. 

Here are images of those products: 

This set makes it easy to create simple or detailed cards.  I love that the images and die cuts can be used for a variety of occasions.  I once used the flower images to create a COVID 19 card and used them as viruses!  Now that is versatility! 
Check the bottom of this post for my Covid card.  

Here is today's simple fun fold card:

And here is how the card opens:

And here is my covid card from November of 2020:

Friday, May 28, 2021...Stamp With Shel...Etched In Nature for Fun Friday and a Challenge.....


Hey, Hey, Hey Stampers!  

Welcome to Stamp With Shel and Fun Friday! 

Today I have a card to share with you that features the Etched In Nature stamp set and a twist on the Scrappy Strip Technique! 

Here is my card: 

To create this card I glued strips of foil dsp - I used the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP onto black cardstock.  

Once all the strips were glued on....I cut it again into strips the opposite way, to create multicolored squares on a black background strip.  

Next, I glued these onto a piece of gold foil.

This creates a fantastic background for any image and you can do it with any dsp or cardstock.  Dig out of your scrap bin and use up those scraps!

And here is a look at the stamp set I used: 

And one final look at this card.  I wish you could see it in person....the gold foiling in this card is beautiful! 

Now for a challenge.....I challenge you to choose a stamp set randomly and create a card using this modified scrappy strip technique!  

I can't wait to see what you come up with!
