At a recent BYO Stamps Class, all of the projects were about gaps. This one was creating the gap using the diagonal slash method.
The main image from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set is stamped all over the piece of Whisper White cardstock. Using the fill-in stamps stamped-off to give a lighter look is a quick way to colour the flowers. I’ve only used a Blushing Bride Ink Pad on this project.
Some more poppies are stamped onto a separate sheet and cut out using the Painted Labels Dies, the other part of the Painted Poppies Bundle. Did you know that you could receive a FREE Bundle of your choice just by joining my Stampin’ Up! Team this month. Take a look at the details here.
You can see this and all of the available Bundles in the new Annual Catalogue.
The background piece is then cut it in half on a diagonal, and the two pieces stuck onto the Rich Razzleberry layer. When you are creating the gap, how you cut the pieces in half is entirely up to you.
You can then do lots of things after creating the gap, from stamping in the gap, to leaving it blank. The choice is yours!
As I wanted to put something over the gap, the extra poppies are stuck onto two Stitched Shapes Dies. One with the stitching cut away to layer on top of the other. To create depth, Dimensionals are used to attach this piece.
Instead of a sentiment, three Clear Epoxy Droplets fill the gap to the right.
Diagonal slash cards are great if you want to be a bit more frugal with your cardstock. As you can create the gap as wide as you like, you can get a few more backgrounds from your sheet of A4 or DSP.
Pop back tomorrow where I’ll show you the final card from this class – covering the gap.
