The Avid Crafter

This is the third and final entry into my “What kind of Stamper are you?” series. Previously I shared a card made with the Beginner Stamper in mind, then the Casual Crafter. Today I have the final type, the Avid Crafter.

The Avid crafter is just that, avid about crafting, and not always just paper crafting. If you are an avid crafter you probably do something crafty several times a week. You probably have a dedicated space in your home for your crafting and like to challenge yourself on the projects you create. You love Pinterest and other online sources for all the ideas you glean and you devour each new catalog for all the new products and ideas.

My Avid Crafter card here today is still the same take on the previous versions but as with all things avid, has just a bit more. More layers, more die-cuts more stamping, more stuff.

I used the same concept of the Ink Spot direct to paper technique but cut each color into a 1×5-1/4″ strip. Each of these were adhered with stampin’ dimensional to a piece of Basic Black dry embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder. I also stamped the holly leaves in Bermuda Bay ink and the berries in Real Red then used my paper snips to cut them out. This is also known as Fussy Cutting. The trick to Fussy Cutting is to move your paper, not the scissors. Keep the snips straight and make long smooth cuts, turning the paper with your other hand along with the design.

I used the pretty ribbon tying technique in the video. If you are viewing this post via email, click the title to view via your web browser
