When I want to jumpstart my creativity, it's always helpful to start with a grateful heart! While I'm at it, why not use one of the new stamp sets I have waiting in the wings?
Here's how I did it... starting with a full 8.5x11" piece of Neenah 110# cardstock, and this fab prize I won from Shirley Bampton's guest spot at Christmas Kickstart. It's her Layered Poinsettias - truly The Bee's Knees!
I'm always surprised when I open Stamplorations stamps. Why?
Because the graphics are smaller than the actual stamps, that's why!
and I love it! Today, I imagined Shirley's Poinsettias as
any flower that might grow in the garden - in these fun CP ink colors:
I started with an 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of Neenah 110# cardstock
that I'd scored at 4.25" and 5.5"
Then cut 4 A2 panels, and added four sentiments from The Stamp Market's Lovely Labels, in Versafine Onyx Black ink. After mounting them onto four card bases, here are the results:
I just love how they turned out!! Thanks, so very much Shirley for this wonderful prize - and for turning my frown upside down today! xo
Brilliant idea to create multiple designs at once it's a must try technique for sure! Thanks fo rmore wonderful inspiration my friend!
These are awesome! Great colors and fabulous images!
I have to remember to create on a full sheet to create multiple cards! I always love it when I see someone do that. Yours are so cheerful. They sure brightened my day!
No matter how you stamped it.... they are all BEAUTIFUL!
Love your Split-4 card design and your poinsettia stamps turned into any kind of flower with your clever stamping. I have this beautiful set and need to play with it after seeing your 4 beauties. TFS my friend. Love and Hug...Nancy
These are wonderful mf...so glad you had time to stamp and what a fun set!!
Wow! What a gorgeous showcase of unique random stamping, Michele! I love it! I've done random stamping, but never quite like this. Wow. Your cards are simply stunning. Thank you so very much for sharing! Crafty hugs.
I've seen the filling of the full sheet of cardstock, but never scoring first so you can judge your placement for the future cards! Pure genius! I love when this old dog learns new tricks! Thank you! Your final creations are just gorgeous!!!!
Oh I just love this. What a fantastic idea to stamp the whole sheet of cardstock and see what happens when you cut it in 4! It's that brain that I love so much in full gear. I hope you have a happy day. If you need a smile, look at these cards...
What a fun way to do the split four technique and get four fabulous cards! Love the bright happy colors and fabulous big sentiments!
These are all awesome! I need a bunch of birthday cards so I think I may try this technique!
I was gob-smacked when I saw how you did this...such a brilliant way to make a card set. AND what a card set it is. Fresh, clean and down-right beautiful colors with those great sentiments.
I never would have put those colours together myself but I love them! I am going to make note of them for future reference... Also I love how you used the full sized paper to create this design. Such a brilliant idea!
Great colors, and a fast way to make 4 cards. And the cards are lovely.
No, thank YOU, Michele for such an impressive showcase of my stamp set. I love it when I see that people have used my designs in a different way, and this is right at the top of the list. Pinning, CASEing, smiling 😍
Ohhh what a creative and fun way to do these marvellous contemporary cards Michele. Gorgeous colour combination and I love the pop of black and the font with the sentiments too x.
I have only did this technique once, but want to try it again as I love how you can get 4 cards at one time. Yes, it is always good to start anything with a grateful heart!! I so love these bright and cheery cards, they are beautiful, they make me smile and I know whoever gets one will get the same feelings. Thanks for making my day more cheerful Michele! Hugs, Brenda
One of my favorite stamp sets and I love that you made the Poinsettias into just regular flowers with the different colors! Great stamp set to use the Split 4 technique on too...4 lovely, lovely cards my friend! Hugs. :0)
So simple and yet so clever. love those colours, love those stamps and love those sentiments xx
I love how you played with your poinsettia stamp set, Michele! The color combo is fabulous and I think it's genius that you created 4 cards with your panel...very cool! xx
What a wonderful way to make multiple cards from one sheet, Michele! All four cards have the sentiment in the perfect spot! Love the cheerful color combo!
Beautiful!! I love how you used Shirley's stamps and I love the colours you used to get your 4 cards.
Wow! Gorgeous colors, and such sweet yet simple design so the sentiment can be the star! A new twist on a design tip I'd seen before but haven't tried, so now...
Only you could turn Christmas flowers tropical! Love these cards and the big crisp sentients!
Truly lovely! I’m so happy I stumbled upon Therese’s live & serendipitously found you! Thank you for the inspiration 😊
LOVE this idea! What a brilliant way to showcase this [awesome] set of stamps. Yeah, I plan on CASEing this idea :)
