Hello Everyone!! It's Lindsay from the DT here with you today sharing a very Clean and Simple Card Set. All six cards in this set were created with just one Joy Clair Stamp Set, Breakfast Friends Forever. Also, all of the cards included in this set are 4-Bar Sized and I used a VERY limited supply list to make these! Be sure to watch the video tutorial below for all of the details!
Starting with six white card stock panels that I cut with a stitched rectangle die, I stamped out each one of my front panels with different stamps and sentiments from the Breakfast Friends Forever Stamp Set. I used waterproof black dye ink for all of the stamping, since I knew I would be using watercolors to color in my images. I also stamped inside each of the 4-Bar white top folding card bases as well! On clean and simple cards I like to decorate the inside as well, for a little something extra! There are so many wonderful choices for combining sentiments and images in this set, you will never run out of options! Also, because I am only using one set for all of the cards, they will coordinate perfectly to become one full set, that I can either use myself or give away as a gift!
With each of my card bases and panels stamped I moved onto the coloring. I chose to use my Sakura Koi Sketchbox Watercolors to watercolor all of the images. Because I was watercoloring on plain white card stock I did have to be careful of the amount of water I was using, so I worked in layers. Also, to add more depth and dimension to the little "scenes" I had created on each of the panels, I added gray grounding and on some of them a blue like "sky" making sure to really work the color out and fade it into white. Finally, to make the coloring go a bit quicker I used the same colors to color in any similar images. For instance, all of the bacon images were colored with the same dark reds and browns on all the cards so I didn't have to mix up an enormous amount of watercolors.
I finished each of these cards exactly the same way. Using fun foam and double sided adhesive, I popped up the panels onto 4-Bar white, top folding card bases. I did use a very thick fun foam for extra dimension since these were such simple cards. Also, I double checked before adhering the panels onto the card bases, to make sure the inside stamping was the match to the panels. For three of the cards I added Enamel Accents in Black Tie, Glacier White, and on the third a mix of the two. The other three cards I left completely CAS!
If you are a fan of a cheeky set/good pun, this set is a must have! Even after creating six different cards and stamping both the inside and outside, I still have a ton of ideas for this set. I hope you all enjoyed today's video tutorial and CAS Card set, using just one stamp set and very limited supplies! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!
