Using the same image for a set of cards: Stampin’ Up! Hooray Card Set

Card sets are a group of cards that all have a similar style, and often only differ slightly with colors or sentiments.  They are great to have on hand for when you need a last minute card, and they make great gifts. Who wouldn’t love a set of handmade cards that they can share, without the work?!? From a maker perspective, they are easy because once you decide on a design, you simply create the same card over and over, with only a little bit of alteration.

The pictured card set is one that I created using the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Statements set.  What I love about the Hooray image from the Birthday Statements set is that it can be used for different celebrations….birthday, anniversary, baby, graduation.  To make the card set, I stamped the Hooray image in four different colors on white cardstock.  I then colored each one of the images with a Wink of Stella clear brush dipped in a coordinating ink pad.  For example, for the Hooray image that is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist, I simply dabbed the end of my Wink of Stella clear brush onto the Lemon Lime Twist pad, and then used it to color the cake part of the image.  I used the Spellbinders Label 4 nesting die set in two different sizes for layering, as well as for the inner panel of the card.  For the jewel embellishment, I used Stampin’ Up! Clear Faceted Gems and colored them with markers to coordinate with the different cards.

Below is a list of the ink pad and cardstock colors by Stampin’ Up! that were used:

Ink Pads and Cardstock: Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide

Find an image that you love and create a card set to keep for when you need a quick card to send, or give the set to someone as a sweet gift.  If gifting, provide envelopes with the cards and tie with some pretty ribbon.

Eat, sleep, create, repeat.
