First let's take a look at a little set with a lot of style, Quite Like You. This font style is so huge right now and I just couldn't resist putting together an affordable little sentiment set.
I wanted something super simple and to the point for this card. I stamped the target from Cupid's Arrow and used a 1" circle punch to cut it out. I couldn't resist adding the arrow from the Cupid's Arrow Companion die. It was just too perfect. The sentiment is from Quite Like You and I heat embossed it in white onto our Cupid's Bow card stock. I love how tall and skinny the font is, yet still thick enough for a solid emboss.
Next, I wanted to take this modern font combo and incorporate it into a more shabby card along with the Damask Delight stamps and dies. I am so happy with how it turned out!
This card is all about the focal point. I die cut a pinked squared using our Clear Cut Stackers: Pinking Squares die and stamped the sentiment in brown. See that little flourish stamped onto the wooden butterfly from Studio Calico? That's one of the eleven flourishes included in Damask Delight! I love how perfectly it fits.
Another flourish was die cut from our Oatmeal card stock using the Damask Delight Companion Die and stamped with the matching image and added to the top. Along the top edge of the card, I used XOXO Border Die to cut a border from our Kraft card stock.
The Clear Cut Stackers: Rounded Rectangles were used again as a mat and flanked at the top and bottom with buttons. This is definitely my favorite card of the release.
Now I know that there are plenty of Damask stamp sets on the market, but I guarantee that you will love all of the additional extras that come along with this set. So far I've shown you some of the flourishes included in Damask Delight, now let's take a look at some of the Damask images themselves.
Creating a pattern is a given with these stamps, but I wanted to create a classic set of stationary cards that used the images as a focal point. I stamped the largest image first in a lighter color, and then stamped one of the smaller images directly over the first in a darker shade of the same color.
See how much detail is packed into each of these images? A simple sentiment from Spring Post was added to the center.
Simple, clean and perfect for gift giving or keeping on hand when you need a card in a pinch.
My final card today shows off some more of the flourishes in Damask Delight along with the companion die. I wanted to create a fairly monotone wedding card and I knew these images would definitely up the elegance factor.
I started with a Label Layers 2 die cut and stamped the label image from Brothers and Sister in the center. The sentiment from Damask Doilies was added using our Black pigment ink. I die cut one of the flourishes from Damask Delight twice and stamped it with our White pigment ink. I added these to the top and bottom of the label.
I created a little cluster of flowers on the left. I stamped a few of the flowers and leaves from Mother's Day Bouquet, cut them out and adhered them at different heights using foam tape.
For the background I stamped several of the images fromMother's Day Bouquet. I used our White pigment ink for the flowers, Versamark for the berries, and embossed the leaves in silver. I really hope the special lady receiving this one loves it!
