Hey everyone! Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! I had so much fun putting this project together for you this month. I was completely inspired by the new Stampin’ Up! Game On stamp set. My family are ‘gamers’ so I knew that this stamp set was going to be a huge hit in my world.
While none of us play chest anymore, I couldn’t help but create with the chest pieces first. It was very evident to me that the background of this card should resemble a game board. The Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes framelits has a one-inch square that brings this idea to life.
We do play Yahtzee and Monopoly, and well, many games with dice. It could work for any age group. I often struggle with using black in my cards are a dominant colour but the Bricks and Mortar 3D embossing folder made it easy. To finish off the embellishing I distress some of the edges of the cardstock pieces. I often do this for masculine cards. My favourite type of cards are very simple. I like to watercolour the images in batches while watching TV. Another day I may cut card stock and score them. Eventually I will pump out oodles of cards in an afternoon. This particular stamp set works perfectly for these simple card sets. You can easily create a card set using the images and sentiments of the stamp set, then pack them up for gifts! I hope you’ve fallen in love with this Game On stamp set as much as I have!
