Sincere Sentiments Mix-Up with Nathalie Leonelli

Hello! It’s Nathalie and I am back today happy to give you a break from all the holiday prep and talk. I am sharing two new greeting cards created by mixing several Sincere Sentiments stamps and metal dies.

Supplies: Sincere Sentiments Congrats StampSincere Sentiments Wonderful You StampSincere Sentiments Best of Friends StampSincere Sentiments Best of Friends Add-on StampSincere Sentiments Wonderful You Metal DieSincere Sentiments Best of Friends Metal DieSincere Sentiments Best of Friends Add-on Metal DieLabels, Ledgers, and Tabs Die CutsWarm Solids Paper StackMagical Memories Paper Stack

My first card started with a negative cut of the word “You” backed by a contrasting black paper from the Magical Memories Paper Stack. I completed the sentiment with stamps from the Best of Friends and the Wonderful You stamps.

I stamped and die-cut three large flowers with the Best of Friends Add-on Stamp and Add-on Metal Die to match the striped paper in the background, also from the Magical Memories Paper Stack.

I kept using the same paper stack for this second card and played more with the idea of matching pastels with black and white sentiments.

I paired the cursive “Hello” stamp from the Best of Friends Stamp with a typewritten phrase from the Congrats Stamp, embossed on black cardstock. 

I die-cut the flowers from white cardstock with the Best of Friends Add-on Metal Die and I really like the clean look!

My ideas for you:

  • mix and match fonts/stamp sets when creating your card sentiments (just like for title building in scrapbooking!)
  • make your sentiment pop by using contrast
  • create depth with foam dots (a must on all my cards!)
  • use metal dies on their own (without their matching stamps) for more options!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you’ll take some time to play with your stamps!
