Happy Monday! Today the talented Justine Hovey is sharing some fun projects using the November release products. It's so fun to see her take on using these stamp sets and hope you are as inspired as much as I am to get creating some cards this week. With Christmas around the corner this would make the perfect handmade gift! Bundle them in a little box and add a bow! Everyone needs cards. And lucky for you today is you can still get 25% off the shop!
today I am guest designing for The Stamp Market and I am really happy with the bulk cards I made. They are super cute as a set to give to a friend or individually to send to those who need it. I used four stamps given to me by the Stamp Market to create these cards: Dotted Background, Feeling Floral, Botanicals and Double Take.
In case you don’t know me, my name is Justine Hovey and I have been cardmaking well over ten years. I love creating bulk cards and sets of cards because my philosophy is “if you got the stuff out and your desk is messy, make it worthwhile!”.
I had an idea to make some bulk cards with colourful background but black and white elements to keep the cards clean and simple. I purchased some Nuvo embossing powder in various colours quite a while ago and it was the perfect opportunity to give them a try. After embossing the backgrounds, I cut them down using a stitched rectangle die.
After I finished up my backgrounds, I die-cut a bunch of sentiments using the Double Take Stamp and Die bundle, I stamped various elements in black using the Botanicals and Feeling Floral stamps and I die cut each shape or fussy cut - depending on if dies were available for the set or not.
After I had a whole bunch of pieces to work with, I started assembling various collages on the background using glue, foam tape and a Xyron sticker machine for the fine dies to add dimension to the cards. All the leftover pieces I tucked inside to the matching stamp or die storage pocket to use for future cards.
A BIG thank you to the Stamp Market for inviting me to guest design for them. If you enjoyed this video tutorial or my cards, you can find more inspiration on my YouTube Channel, Facebook or Instagram @justinehovey
