April 2019 Colour Combo Blog Hop - Beginning Stamper Cards Using The Waterfront Stamp Set

Publish Date: 
April 2019 Colour Combo Blog Hop | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

It is already time for another Colour Combo blog hop! This month the Colour Combo crew of Stampin' Up! demonstrators will inspire you with creations using: Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron and Blushing Bride.

While enjoying a virtual mini retreat with my team leader and crafting buddy Libby, I asked if we could work on a set of three beginning stamper cards per a pinterest pin I'd found. Here is the -> pinterest pin so you can follow along. Normally Libby and I enjoy creating more elaborate cards so I wasn't sure if she would agree. She graciously said yes and off we went!

I've made a video walking through my three cards and tomorrow I will post Libby's projects so this article isn't a mile long! --> Video link note length: 9 min 5 sec. Video also embedded below.

I tend to struggle with basic stamping projects so this was a great exercise in how to relax and enjoy making things with as little as a few ink pads, white cardstock, and a couple of embellishments.Here are all three cards made using fun patterns.

I did use a neutral color for the sentiment. I tried black and gray but both were too dark. Sahara Sand matches the linen thread so I went with that.

I struggled the most with the circles card, here is a close up of what I added to make it work for me. More details are in the video.


Whether you are a beginner, casual or an avid stamper, I hope you gleaned some inspiration from my projects.  Don’t forget to leave a comment before you hop to Lizzy and see her creation.
