Sale-a-Brating Lovely Lattice

Last Day to Sale-a-Brate!

It is the last day of Sale-a-Bration and so I wanted to feature some additional ideas using our wonderful Sale-a-Bration stamp sets.  The first, I think has quickly became one of my favorites, the Lovely Lattice.

I created this card using a new technique with my Stamparatus.  Note, that you cannot do this technique without a stamp positioning tool!  This card uses very few supplies although it looks like you used 8 different ink colors, it uses only 3!

First, I inked the entire image up with my Daffodil Delight and Stamped:

Lovely Lattice Step 1

Then, I randomly applied Lovely Lipstick to my stamp in various spots, and stamped again.  Since my paper and originally stamped image had not moved on the Stamparatus base, and my stamp was still in the same position on the Stamparatus plate, I could easily stamp directly over my original image and have perfect alignment.  AND, if we remember what we learned in 1st grade art class, yellow and red make orange… so… this is what I now have, pretty cool, huh?:

Lovely Lattice Step 2

But, we can’t just stop there… well, we could, but that wouldn’t be as much fun.  So, I added a third color, Bermuda Bay.  I randomly inked spots on my stamp, and stamped over my image a 3rd time.  Back to our 1st grade art class where yellow and blue make green, and red and blue make purple… we get this:

Lovely Lattice 3

You can always go back over the stamp and apply more Lovely Lipstick or Bermuda Bay in places to get the look you want.  But this is such a cool technique, and NO two cards will be exactly alike!

The Lovely Lattice set does not contain any sentiments, so I added my sentiment from the Dear Doily stamp set and punched it out with my 1 1/2″ Circle Punch, and layered it on a 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle in Bermuda Bay.

Again, this technique could not have been accomplished without my Stamparatus.  If you would like to get the Lovely Lattice stamp set, you can earn it FREE with the purchase of Stamparatus, or any other items totaling $50!  WOW!  But hurry, this stamp set is only available until midnight TONIGHT!
