Parts & Pieces - Darling Donkey

When a new stamp set arrives, sometimes the first thing you want to do is experiment. You may want to pull out several ink pads and stamp with the set in different ways to see how many adorable project ideas you can think up. Our concepts artists are the same, and as you can see, they had fun trying to decide how best to show off this darling donkey’s cuteness with just a few simple supplies.

For the first card, we stamped the same image twice and cut the Basic White Cardstock and Designer Series Paper layers in half. This is so easy to do and creates a pleasing mirror image effect. For the next card, we used the same donkey image and sentiment multiple times on the same cardstock layer. It’s a simple trick, but the results are eye-catching. For the third card, we cut the Basic White Cardstock layer into three pieces and suggested movement by revealing more and more of the same donkey image. It’s almost a vintage cartoon reel. So fun!

Mixing and matching stamp images and paper layers is one of the easiest ways there is to create multiple cards in minutes, so why not sit down with your favorite stamp set today and see what you can come up with? The possibilities truly are endless—and as you can see, even simple methods make marvelous cards!
