Typographical Card – Beer Lovers

Hi All, Welcome to today’s Blog Post. Today I am focusing on using a stampset which has many sentiments in the one set and I have taken advantage of the sentiments by creating my own typographical type background.   The stampset used for today’s card in the fairly new release stampset “Beer Lovers”.

You will need plenty of clear blocks ready on hand as I found having the stamps already mounted on their blocks helped switching them around whilst stamping and inking up on your card stock.  I have kept to a black and white theme with a pop of colour for the glass of beer.

IMG_7559Each card has their own design and I have show cased that you can use rectangles and squares to achieve this overall typographic look.
To add some extra cardstock layers to the card I have used a stitched circle die yet still keeping the overall design clean and simple.

The above card has an added layer of Vellum this can help soften such a strong striking background and muting the text.

Each card has glossy accents that has been applied to all Beer stamped images. including the black and coloured beer.
I hope this blog post has inspired you to use your stampsets in other ways. 
Happy Paper Crafting Peeps.
