Mix & Match + New Mood Board Challenge

Hi, everyone! Today I’m sharing a few masculine cards I created for the current SumMore Fun Mood Board Challenge. Also, I’m touching on mixing and matching those stamp sets. 

Here’s the current mood board challenge. Remember you can use the whole board, the photos, or the colors. It’s completely up to you but we do need to see how your project connects with the board.  

I worked with the Victorine Originals Text background stamp but decided to grab a few more stamps from SumMore Fun to pull some of the elements from the photos onto my cards. I grabbed the Victorine Originals Clock Minutes, Raison Boat Family Circle, and Raisin Boat True Love Stamp Sets.  I did some serious mix n match here but isn’t that what we should be doing? Using our stamps in every way possible. 

The cards are easy enough to create. You need navy, light blue, and two shades of a tan ink. Start by stamping the text background in the lightest tan ink. I used Memento Ink in Desert Sand. Then follow that with the clock minutes stamp and light blue ink. I used Memento Ink Summer Sky. 

This is where the mix n match really came into play. I’ve had the RB Family Circle Set for a while and struggled with how to use it. I knew one card was going to be a Father’s Day card and the other a Birthday card. It hit me then that the Family Circle had a perfect stamp with lots of “family” words and I knew that it would play well with the text background, too. The small words, special moments, stamped with Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa and Nautical Blue,  worked perfectly to fill in a few empty spaces. The circle filled with words was a perfect anchor for my greeting(RB True Love Set) banner. 

Just add patterned paper to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base, using fun foam on the back of stamped panel, adhere to patterned paper, add greeting using 3D mounting foam and you are done. 

Use this same process changing the small word to “time” from the RB Family Circle Set and switch up your greeting to Happy Birthday from the RB True Love Set
