Quick Cards using the Wavy Stamp

Hi there, Roadies!

Celia from Paper Beats Rock Designs here to share my process for making these quick cards using the Wavy Stamp along with  You're The Dopest , Cheeky Holiday, and diecuts or punches from your stash.

I wasn't sure what kind of card I wanted to make, because this Wavy background is so versatile! I makes me think of smoke, water, magic, wrapping paper; I was on idea overload! So, instead of trying to make a card with just one theme, I decided to make 2 drastically different cards and grabbed out High Maintainance and Festive as Fuck.

I used my diecutting plate to stamp my Wavy background on 2 card fronts and used 2 different powders to emboss them.

Next, I went to my stash of diecut and punched circles and grabbed out 3 for each card.

To make each layer stand out from one another I decided to heat emboss a circle from each card. I rolled them across my very dirty ink pad...

...then covered the edge in the coordinating embossing powder.

I love the added sparkle it gives. After that I took another circle from each card and inked their edges.

For my You're The Dopest card, I cut the sentiment from the Smoking Girl image and embossed her into vellum with lavender powder.

For my Cheeky Christmas card, I stamped out a candy cane from the set, colored it with alcohol markers, added, details with gel pens, and then fussy cut it out.

I added a bit if dimension using think craft foam between each layer of circles.

To make sure the adhesive wouldn't show though the vellum I used a glue pen just along my smoking girl image.

Then it was time to add sentiments, so I embossed each using the coordinating powder on a step piece of paper and glued them to the card fronts.

Lastly, I added some rhinestones and enamel dots for more sparkle! I love how these cards came out and how different they are from one another even though they are basically exactly the same.


I can't wait to make a buuuunch more cards and crafts with the Wavy stamp!  Head on over to the Ink Road Shop and snag this one, and remember to tag us on Instagram so we can see whatcha make with it, #inkroadstamps
