Super Saturday with Pam – Super Samedis avec Pam

Welcome back to Magenta Super Saturday and welcome 2021! 

I decided to make a set of tri-fold cards today using a set of Magenta puzzle stamps.  The Garden Flower Tile set has four different square stamps that work together beautifully but can also be used individually.  These cards will work well for any occasion but I plan to send them to friends just to say “hello.”

I positioned each of the stamps in my stamping tool and stamped them on a piece of desert storm cardstock with VersaFine ink.  I lined them up so there would be enough space to cut them out after I finished coloring them.  Next, I colored the images with Prismacolor pencils.  I used my powder tool generously over all the images and returned the piece to my stamp positioner.  I restamped the images using VersaMark ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I cut out all the images then matted them on two slightly larger squares of cardstock.  For the bottom layer of the square I used a piece of double sided gold paper because after the card is assembled, a small portion of the back of the square will be visible.

For the card bases I cut four pieces of desert storm cardstock to 4 1/2" x 11", then scored each piece at 1 3/4" and 7 1/8" and folded on the score lines to make tri-fold cards.

I stamped the Swirly Leaves stamp repeatedly on the card front with VersaMark ink and then embossed with Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder.  To complete the cards I adhered the square stamped image to the front of the cards a two accent strips of the same cardstock I used to mat the stamped image.  

Thanks for visiting the Magenta blog today.  I wish you the very best in the coming year.
