June Stamp With Amy K Ordering Special Winners

Here are the two winners from my June ordering give away:

Fabulous Florets Stamp Set:  Kimberly L

$25 Gift Certificate:  Barbara R

Congratulations to both of you, I’ll be dropping you an email shortly.  See my note below to find out how you can be entered to win one of two $25 gift certificates in July!


For my card share today, I used the By the Seashore stamp set and the new Square Collection Framelits Dies from Stampin’ Up!  Sometimes it’s a challenge to make a single layer card, but I find that masking is the perfect technique for this.  It adds and extra “layer” without any bulk.  My card design was inspired by RetroSketches #70.

By the Seashore

I started by using one of the Square Collection Framelits Dies to cut a mask from scrap paper.  I removed the square die cut and taped the mask to the front of my card in the location that I wanted using blue painters tape.  I sponged the cutout with Soft Sky ink until it was as dark as I wanted the color to be.

By the Seashore 1

I left the mask in place and I stamped the three images from the By the Seashore stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink.  Then I removed the mask and stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Thanks stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink (using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement).

By the Seashore 2

I finished the inside of the card by stamping the By the Seashore images again in Chocolate Chip ink across the bottom of the card.  As quick as that, the card was done!!
