Oh Hello Stamp-A-Stacks

Today, I'm showing you a bunch of cards I made recently & I did a tutorial for these - it was my first one, but I think I did ok! Here's the link to my Periscope via Katch, it's a bit pixilated cos my internet speed isn't great, so sorry about that. But I'm hoping to set up a YouTube Channel & get some more tutes out there cos I actually really enjoyed doing it & I've had some lovely feedback :)

So here's a close up of one of the ones I did on the tute, you can see it a lot clearer here! I have used a Whisper White base for all of them, in a C6 size (A4 cut in half & then folded in half). For this one I have used an Elegant Eggplant layer, embossed with the Lovely Lace Emboss Folder on the Big Shot. I have also added a 2" piece of burlap (from my stash) lined up with the right side & I have pulled a couple of threads out of the end to give it a frayed look.

All of my banners are from the Love Blossoms DSP. I have cut them 13cm x 5cm & then cut them in the Banner Triple Punch - 5cm is the widest banner setting on this punch. I have stamped the little chick from the Oh Hello stamp set from the SAB catalog in Daffodil Delight (I love that yellow!) on Whisper White cardstock & then cut him out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch.

I've taped the circle onto the banner using the White Glimmer Tape from the SAB catalog & put a little Bow Paper Clip on the top. I've also stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Elegant Eggplant onto some more Whisper White cardstock & cut it out with the Washi Label Punch. I've used Dimensionals under the sentiment & under the banner.

On the inside, I have used another piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock, layered with a piece of Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment is from the Circle of Spring stamp set & is stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink. I have used the thank you, happy mother's day & happy birthday sentiments from this set to stamp some of the other cards I have made in the pictures below, so there are about 4 of each sentiment. I've also done a matching flower on the envelope.

The cardstocks I have used are Elegant Eggplant, Hello Honey, Garden Green, Lost Lagoon & Crumb Cake. The emboss folders I have used are Happy Hearts, Decorative Dots, Lovely Lace, Woodland, Brick Wall, Arrows & Blossoms. The Blossoms one is retired & the Woodlands one will be available in the next Annual Catalog from 1 June 2016. All of the other emboss folders I have used are current.

The inks I have used on the chicks are Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Rose Red & Daffodil Delight. I have matched the ink inside & on the envelope to the chick or the sentiment on the outside. I have also used the Gold & Silver Glimmer Tapes from the SAB catalog on some of the cards.

I did use my Corner Trio Punch on the Crumb Cake card in the corner, but that is the only card I used it on as I decided I liked the corners square better.

These cards were relatively quick & easy to put together in bulk & they all look different. I'm really happy with the results! What do you think? Do you like Stamp-A-Stacking? I love getting my little production line on :P
