Take 2 with Therese: Stamp Focus: Simply the Best + Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it’s Therese and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese.

Today, I am sharing two cards using Altenew’s Simply the Best Stamp Set.

I decided to use the Essential Rock Collection 6×6 Paper Pack so there is no coloring in either of these card designs today!

I started by layering a stamped flower and added a Warm Sunshine Cardstock center.

The sentiment is from the Wavy Roses Stamp Set.

For my second card, I decided to use only one layer of the stamp and created a 3D style background.

I heat-embossed 3 flowers on Velvet Cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die.

Then I added a piece of the Essential Rock Collection 6×6 Paper to the background and a sentiment from the Simply the Best Stamp Set.

Love these cards. The subtle gray patterns on the petals – genius. Can’t wait to give that a try!

Love the cards in this video from Therese and love her videos. I always learn something and she always makes me smile because of her great sense of humor! In this video, I learned that I should stop hoarding my pattern paper and that I should use my powder tool more effectively! :)

What a great way to use pattern papers! I don’t have an extensive collection, mainly because I struggle with thinking of interesting ways to use them.

I often like to create my own stamped ‘design paper’ that way I can never run out, but when I am in a hurry or needing ‘help’ the papers are a great go to lol.
