Happy Thursday! Lindsay and I are back today with another Take 2 Thursday. This week we are using the Poet Society Card Kit from Studio Calico. I have been a Studio Calico subscriber for 7 months now, and I have to say that the stamp set included in the September kit is hands down one of my favorites- jewels, banners, a fancy font and sentiments for a variety of occasions- what's not to love?! Anyway, here's my take with the kit:
I made a card from white card stock. Next I die cut a circle from a panel of 4.25 x 5.5" white card stock. I aligned the die cut panel with the card front and used a pencil to trace the circle on my card. I stamped the sentiment first in black ink.
Next, for the gems and jewels, I employed the "two step stamping with one step stamp" technique. In other words, I inked up and stamped the back side of the stamp before stamping the lined image on top. This technique works well with almost any symmetrical stamp. I am not great at coloring, so this allows me a fast and easy way to get some color to my lined images.
Once I stamped the larger images, I filled in the design with a few of the smaller gems and stars. I erased the pencil line and adhered the die cut panel to the card with foam tape.
Here's a look at the Poet Society kit:
That's all for me today, but please be sure to visit Lindsay's blog to see what she created with this kit. I know it will be amazing!
Thanks for stopping by!
