Using Stamps in a Layout

Brandy has taken a cute layout and stamped the tar out of it to make a gorgeous one! The accent paper isn't Close to My Heart, but any background and texture (B&T) would make this layout work. She used a 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 matte of brown cardstock for the photo and an inked up Desert Sand textured cardstock, cut just a quarter inch larger, to create a double matte. The design sheet looks to be cut at about 7 x 12 and is inked in the same way as the Desert Sand cardstock. Her title bar is Colonial White textured cardstock cut about 2 inches wide with a brown 1/2 inch ribbon on the bottom (embellished with a basic accent) and a Desert Sand textured cardstock border on the top.

You can see better on this second picture just how elaborate her enhancements are. She added a heart from the Soul Mates stamp set stamped in Cranberry tucked under her name, which she stamped in the Cocoa ink, matching her cardstock and ribbon, on Desert Sand textured cardstock. She used the large Chocolate alphabet for her name and the small one for the Colonial White textured cardstock card at the bottom of the page. Did you notice that she added sewing lines on her title card?

She also used the swirls from the Playful Flourishes stamp set in Colonial White on the same Cocoa cardstock for additional accents and added the words from the same set also in Colonial White directly on the Cranberry cardstock that makes up the base of her layout. Her final accent, stamped in Cranberry on Colonial White textured Cardstock is from the Shop 'til You Drop Stamp Set.
