Stamp Focus: With Gratitude

by Erum Tasneem

Hello friends! Erum here. I hope you liked this month’s release :)  I will be focusing on With Gratitude Stamp Set today which a lot of people loved during the hop. Of course I had a blast making projects with this stamp set.

First, is my favourite of the lot.

For my card front, I stamped both leaves from the With Gratitude Stamp Set several times using a light coloured ink.

I then proceeded to drop watercolour on the leaves aimlessly with a mix of several distress inks. A mix of two to three colours was added to all the leaves for interest. I love how the stamped lines are still visible on some leaves.

I adhered my watercolour panel onto a card base. Then, I proceeded to stamp a sentiment on vellum which I heat embossed using Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.

I inked up a die cut word from Holiday Script Words die set in an ombre fashion, red to yellow. Then I adhered the word a bit offset onto gold foil cardstock and placed it on the card front. As a result, it stood out more than before. In the end, I applied glossy accents on it and added tons of Rainbow Sequins along the stamped leaves.

Second, brightly coloured leaves on Kraft.

First and foremost, let me make this clear that the dark smudges you see on my card front along the edges is actually foil, my card is not dirty hehe.

Here, I heat embossed several leaves with Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder and dropped in some watercolour randomly. Just don’t mix colours that would turn murky. Pinks, yellows and oranges go well together as well as reds. Blues, yellows and greens work very well together.

I die cut all the leaves and placed them horizontally on the card front. After adhering them with foam tape, I skewed all of them in different directions so they don’t look super straight.

Then I heat embossed a sentiment onto a kraft strip and popped it on the front. Finally, I adhered a die cut word “Thanks” from Script Words 2. Lastly, I added a few gold sequins and placed some Crystal Rainbow Confetti for some extra oomph.

Third and last.

For this card I just used the With Gratitude Coordinating Die Set. To start, I die cut several leaves, inked them up in pink, green, yellow and orange colours and applied foil on them randomly.

I added some black paint splatters and gold string to my card front and placed my leaves randomly. I heat embossed one of the sentiments on black cardstock and popped it over my leaves and added a bit of gold glitter tape along one edge of the sentiment label.

Before I leave, I’d like to share this card again that I made for the release hop in case you haven’t seen it earlier and would like a more CAS card.

Kept the design super simple with lot of layers for interest. The leaf is heat embossed and watercoloured to achieve a faux stain glass look.

As can be seen, this is such a versatile stamp set and you can do a lot more with it. That is all from my side today. I hope I have inspired you a little if not a lot with my gold goodies. See you soon.

Erum

Hi Erum, Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards and all the details on how you put them together.

Love this stamp set and many others in the new release!

The first card, Wishes, is so incredibly gorgeous! I would love to see a tutorial on this, or if there already is one, I would love to be directed to it so I can try out the watercolor technique. I don’t know if I have the right kinds of watercolors. But it is just so beautiful. Absolutely stunning!

Reply
Erum Tasneem October 5, 2017 - 04:22

I just use distress inks to watercolour since they flow well. All you need to do is wet the area and drop the colour in.
