Today, Sandi MacIver, Amy Koenders, and I have all created projects featuring items from Project Life by Stampin’ Up! My card was super quick and easy to make and highlights the beautiful Canadian Goose image from the Wetlands stamp set.
I thought the graphic black and white card from Project life would make a great background for the Wetlands stamp in Stazon Black ink. Because the card already had a hint of yellow and a great white stripe across the bottom, I decided to add some Hello Honey Ribbon and mount it on a panel of Crushed Curry. Then, I added my combined panel to a Basic Black card base.
I stamped the goose image from the Wetlands stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock, and put it on my magnetic platform with the Labels Framelits Die on top. With the die in place, I added the “Thanks” greeting from the Another Thank You stamp set. Because this set is one of our clear photopolymer sets, it makes perfect placement a breeze. After cutting out my stamped image, I also cut two dies of the same size in Basic Black. I cut one of them horizontally and the other vertically down the middle. I used the four pieces to create a thin mat for my goose. This requires a little trimming before you glue everything together, otherwise you have little parts that stick out. I like to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue for this because it gives me a little play to move the pieces around before the glue dries.
I finished off the inside of the card by stamping the image of the little birds in the water along the bottom of a Whisper White Panel.
I really enjoy using Project Life for creating quick cards. The ready-made backgrounds make everything a breeze to put together. I was able to put this card together in just a few minutes while my son played with the dogs! This is not something I can say often with a three year old running around. LOL.
