One more postage collage post (for now). As a Waffle Flower Sneak Peek subscriber, I get a little glimpse of what is in the works at Waffle Flower and the December kit contained a mini slimline sized postage collage die and the basic block stencil as well as a winter scene stamp set. So, I decided to get busy on three different cards.
The first one is a Valentine’s card in a vintage style, using pink and brown. I inked the edges of the squares, leaving the centers white so that it would give the look of a highlight. Using a stamp set that I had won as a prize a very long time ago, I stamped a vintage rose themed image in each square. I then cut the panel with the die and added it to a brown card panel which I then adhered to a white mini slimline cardbase. I added a sentiment that I had printed on my laser printer and foiled on my Minc Machine with gold toner foil which I popped up on foam tape.
Searching high and low
My second card follows a similar vein, but this one goes in the quirky direction. I inked the squares with the stencil and using two shades of pink Distress Oxide ink. I have this stamp set of meerkats that a friend had gifted me and so I placed one in each the blocks big enough to place a stamp, leaving the stencil in place as well as masking the other areas so that the meerkats did not overlap into other blocks.
I completed the card by printing the two parts of the sentiment, one with black text and one with a black box around white text and then foiled them with gold foil. I added them to the card with foam tape strips and added a heart cut from gold glitter craft foam to the small block.
A winter scene
The final card is a winter scene. I started by inking the blocks with blue and yellow Distress Oxide inks. This blended into a greenish shade in the middle. I then built a winter mountain scene with the Winter View Stamp Set and Versafine Onyx Black ink. I completed the card with some franking from the Postage Collage Stamp Set.
I think these “windows” would look great too with little die cuts instead of stamping to complete the scene building. I plan to try it. I had previously done postage college projects with stenciling in my posts New Crafty Goodies and Waffle Flower Postage Collage Rose Stencil.
