Sample Projects

1. Use the stamps only.

wfc-wish-you-were-here-card The river and the mountains were stamped in two steps. The tent was paper pieced. wfc-wish-you-were-here-card-step-2 The texture was added using the big circle from our Flower Circles Stamp Set. wfc-wish-you-were-here-card-step-1 I then added the scallop frame from our Surface - Tag Die - Scallop Add-on to frame the scene. wfc-wish-you-were-here-card-3 Working with this stamp set makes me happy! wfc-wish-you-were-here-card-closeup

2. Use the dies.

wfc-riverside-fish-you-were-card The river was die cut from white cardstock and then colored with Distress Ink. It is hard to see from the photo but I also die cut the river from clear acetate to give it a nice water-like shine: wfc-riverside-die-closeup The only stamps I used were the fish and sentiment. wfc-riverside-stamp-masking

3. A Simple Project

I tried to use as many stamps/dies as possible in my last two cards but I also want to show you how cute the images are for quick and easy projects. wfc-two-fish-in-a-pond-tag

Tag and hole reinforcer from Surface - Tag Die - Starter Kit (sold separately)

I stamped the big circle from Flower Circles Stamp Set with pink ink, punch out with a 2" circle punch and then stamped the cloud/pond and fish with black ink. wfc-sneak-peek-5 Joni from our design team is also sharing a card today! wfc-Riverside-by-joni
