Two Terrific “You Can Make It” Projects

If you are like me, I am constantly flipping through the Stampin’ Up catalog because it is my #1 go-to source for creativity.  You’ll find lots of card ideas, gift ideas, gift packaging ideas, color combinations, coordinating products and inspiring, quick to create projects.

On page 33 of the new catalog, you’ll find “This Little Piggy Cards Supply Set”.  You can purchase the “set of supplies” listed for this project using a single item number or purchasing the supply items “individually”. 

Let’s take a closer look at this project and how the background was created.

To create this simple but impressive background, using This Little Piggy Stamp Setdraw some thick, straight lines using your Petal Pink Dark Stampin’ Blend Marker — horizontally, vertically or in a crosshatch pattern.  You can even add a thin line Granny Apple Green Light Stampin’ Blend Marker as an accent.  The background design is actually enhanced by the varying widths and slight waviness of the lines.

These cards from the Waterfall Cards Supply Set are quick and easy.  By using first and second generation stamping techniques, and varying the position of the “line”, “circle” or “tree” images, it is possible to create several cards in minutes!
