WE BEE STAMPING TEAM BLOG HOP
SHARING A TECHNIQUE
Welcome and thank you for "buzzing" over to my blog today! This month's blog hop is showcasing a stamping technique and I've chosen the Split Card Design Technique to share with you today. This is a double bonus technique since you stamp once and it gives you two cards!
For this card, I used To A Wild Rose stamp set with the coordinating Wild Rose Dies. Both panels are mounted on Smoky Slate cardstock. Merry Merlot ink was used for the outline of the flowers and the inside was stamped with Rococo Rose ink. The leaves were stamped with Mint Macaron. I added some Gilded Gems for a little bling.
Now, for the fun part - Cut a piece of 8-1/2 x 11 cardstock in half at 5-1/2 and draw a pencil line at the center (4-1/4). Using Stampin' Up! Grid Paper makes it easy to get a straight line.
Use stamps with coordinating dies or punch and place over your pencil line, completely covering the line. Off-setting the stamped images makes each panel different.
Once the middle section of the cardstock has been "filled-up", cut the cardstock at 4-1/4 to separate it into two panels.
Trim these pieces to desired size, attach to your card base, embellish and presto - two cards with one simple technique!
I offer a monthly Technique Class and would love to have you attend if you live in the Lake County, Ohio area. Just click Events at the top of my blog for my class listings.
Sit back, relax and "hop" through all the posts to see a variety of stamping techniques from my fellow We BEE Stampin Team members.
