Pictogram Punches Just Because – Stampin’ Up!

I used the Picturegram Punches and Dotty Angles stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share today.

Pictogram Punches - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Seize the Sketch #24.

And my card colors were inspired by The Card Concept #14.  For this challenge I chose a Clean and Layered style.

I used the image from the Dotty Angles photopolymer stamp set to create an ombre effect background.  I started by stamping the image in Bermuda Bay ink, then Coastal Cabana ink, then Pool Party ink and finally Soft Sky ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the stamped panel to a Bermuda Bay card base with SNAIL.

Pictorgram Punches 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered a panel of Maritime DSP to a panel of Basic Black card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL.  Then I adhered a panel of Bermuda Bay card stock over the DSP panel with SNAIL.  I inked up the vase image from the Pictogram Punches stamp set with Bermuda Bay ink, then I used my Blender Pen to remove the ink from the center zigzag line and the stems.

Pictorgram Punches 3 - Stamp With Amy K

Once I had the ink removed, I colored those pieces with my Pool Party and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers, then stamped the image on a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the And Many More stamp set in Real Red ink and I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiment under the vase.

Pictorgram Punches 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the three flower images from the Pictogram Punches stamp set in Real Red on a Whisper White panel, punched them out with the matching flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots.  Then I colored three Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Blendabilities Marker and I adhered them to the center of the flowers.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Dotty Angles - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the image from the Dotty Angles stamp set across the bottom of a Whisper White panel to complete the inside of the card.

Alright, I’m back to admiring the Holiday Catalog…I am afraid to total up my “must have” list!!!  By the way, I posted another sneak peek at a stamp set and punch from the catalog on my Facebook page yesterday and I’ve started a 2014 Holiday Catalog Pinterest Board where I’ll be pinning like crazy soon so be sure to check them both out!
