Gently Falling Stamp-a-Stack
I like to showcase retiring stamp sets and colours in my June classes...it's always nice to have one last play before they are gone forever. Here I've used the "Gently Falling" stamp set for a set of Stamp-a-Stack Cards. I usually use Autumn tones with this stamp set, but I decided to try something a bit different this time - the colour combination is Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz and retiring In Color Midnight Muse. This is a 2-step stamp set, so each image has an outline and a corresponding 'fill-in' image. I didn't 2-step my images for these cards. Instead, I stamped a random background pattern, using the 2 lighter colours for the fill-in, and Midnight Muse for the outline.
My Whisper White pieces are 14.3 x 9cm. After I stamped my background, I tore/cut the piece at about the 2/3 mark. It's a simple (and cheap!) way to add some interest. The sentiments are just placed along the tear line.
I think I'll be re-creating this design in lots of other colours with other stamp sets!
