The focus is all on you!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and quick card featuring the Capture the Good stamp set! I recently purchase some of the new Shimmer Black Emboss Powder and thought it would be fun to give the camera from this stamp set a little sparkle! I wasn’t sure what to expect from the new embossing powder, but I really like how the shimmer is very subtle and you can really see it from an angle, which is nice and unlike glitter, if you were thinking that this embossing powder may be similar to.

The base layer is Seaside Spray cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the next layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

You will also need a 1 ½” x 3 ¾” piece of Seaside Spray DSP from the 2019-2021 In Colors 6” x 6” DSP, stamp the camera in Versamark on Basic Gray cardstock, heat emboss with the Shimmer Black Emboss Powder, and fussy cut out:

I stamped the sentiment on the Whisper White cardstock in Basic Gray ink (stamping off once first) and then adhere to the Seaside Spray cardstock:

The sentiment is stamped on the DSP in Basic Gray ink several times, using my Stamparatus, to make sure the image is dark enough on the DSP, and then adhere the DSP onto the cardstock:

The base layer is adhered to a Basic Gray cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”, the camera is adhered with dimensionals, and I added one of the large Seaside Spray Faceted Dot to the middle of the camera lens:

The inside sentiment is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the accent stamp is stamped in Seaside Spray ink and the sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray ink:

Very quick and easy card, right?? Adding simple cardstock layers and creating your own “DSP” with a stamp is a quick and easy way to give your card that little extra! Add some heat embossing and some embellishments and you have a super cute card that will sure to brighten someone’s day!!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun card featuring the new stamp set, Capture the Good! This stamp set was inspired by Tami White for her 1 million dollar sales achievement (she was the first demonstrator to achieve the 2 million dollar sales achievement last year). Not only is Tami my upline, but she is also a sweet friend of mine! Granite I only get to see her a couple times a year at On Stage, but it is so wonderful seeing her and the other sweet ladies from Team Stamp It! When she offered a special bundle featuring her stamp set AND you could get it autographed, I jumped at the chance! Needless to say, this stamp set will be part of my “permanent” collection!! Normally I only create cards using Stampin’ Up! products, but I thought the camera from this set would be perfect to take it a step up with the lens and use a Mini Wobble Spring. These are self-adhesive springs that give your projects a little “pop” and you can see them HERE from Amazon.com.

The base layer is Pool Party cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I used the dash stamp from the Birthday Backgrounds in Pretty Peacock ink and used my Stamparatus with the “hinge step technique” to line the stamp evenly across. TIP-normally you would just move your plate to the next hinge, but with the stamp you will move it two over and then stamp:

The camera is stamped in Memento Ink on Smoky Slate cardstock, I filled in the shadows with the Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, used the 1” and 1 ½” Circle Punches for the camera lens, heat embossed the sentiment in silver on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the 6thlargest Stitched Nested Labels, cut out a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock with the 5thlargest label to layer under the sentiment, and picked out 7 of the Pool Party Iridescent Sequins. TIP-I number my labels, 1 is the largest and 8 is the smallest:

The sentiment layers are adhered together and then I adhered both the camera and sentiment to the stamped based layer:

The larger ring for the camera lens is adhered with mini dimensionals and then the smaller inner lens piece is adhered with the mini wobble spring:

This is what the Mini Wobble Spring looks like

This piece is then adhered to a Pretty Peacock cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. I used my Take Your Pick Tool and Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the sequins to make it look like “camera flashes”:

The inside sentiment is on a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock, the sentiment is in Pretty Peacock ink and the small lens stamp in Pool Party ink:

Isn’t this a fun stamp set?? Not only can you make super cute cards, but it would be great for scrapbooking!
