Pals Guest Stamper: Jane K.

Jane Knudsen, today’s guest stamper and a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals, describes herself as a clean and simple with layered
paper, ribbon/twine, and button kind of gal.  As a departure, she recently decided to try just a plain card with nothing added and fell in love with
it.  She recreated this single layer style for you with the baby card above.  Smashing!

Jane’s Baby Card Recipe:

used the Stampin’ Up! Two by Two (126788) Noah Ark set, stamped in black on whisper
white.  I used the Stampin’ Up! textured distressed plate (retired) for the
background, colored pencils, and a bit of blue chalk for the sea.


Jane sent me a second wedding card which is the essence of clean and simple.  The blocked square is uber cool!

Jane’s Wedding Card Recipe:

This 5 x 5  card is inspired by a close friend who is getting married.  Her colors are ivory, burgundy, and taupe.  I used Very Vanilla for the card stock, sentiment and dress.  I used Bravo Burgundy
Ink for the stamped dress and the sentiment.  I punched the circle
using the 1 ? punch and the Bravo Burgundy with the 2 ? circle punch.
The dress I cut out and popped up.  I added small pearls at the waist
and large pearls around the burgundy circle of the sentiment.  I offset
the circles, which I cased from Mary’s Frightening Feline Halloween card.  I masked off about an inch from the edges using sticky notes and
sponged in the Bravo Burgundy ink for the square background.  I used the
dress from the Love & Laughter stamp set (Wood-Mount 125475, Clear-Mount 125477)  and the sentiment from  Word Play (Wood-Mount 120308, Clear-Mount 120651)
