I've never tasted the delicacies offered on Bourbon Street, walked the width of Abbey Road. Nor have I visited the stores on Fifth Avenue, or gambled on Park Place. I've never driven on Route 66 or traded on Wall Street. But I have been to Market Street...Market Street Stamps, as their September Guest Designer!
I made two one layer cards featuring the latest releases from Market Street Stamps: Hit the Mark and Great Big Greetings! I was really smitten with how well these two sets work perfectly together and are valuable arsenal for my favorite style of car making- clean and simple!
Both cards are created using a simple white card base, inks and markers. The bold sentiments can stand alone, but when paired with the super cute and whimsical their meanings really shine. Thanks to Market Street Stamps for letting me showcase a few of their sets this month!
I think that the design elements laid out in Paper Craft's Card Design Handbook and on Moxie Fab World really helped me with these one layer cards. On the first card, I went for the impact of color: One gallon of black, one quart of yellow and the pint, or pop of red. I focused on the Asymmetry aspect for the second card. I wanted your eye to be drawn to the bold greeting, which is off centered. Of note: the arrows and sentiment are purposely double stamped, once in grey and then in black...a cool shadow effect.
