Welcome to my new Sunday series, affectionately known as Simple Sunday! The aim of this series is to showcase projects using minimal supplies, ideal for the beginner crafter or someone new to Stampin’ Up! Each project is a white card base with a 3×3 panel decorated using a single stamp set or die set. This weeks project is showcasing the Way to Go! stamp set, which is so versatile for many different themes – children, welcoming new babies, car / train hobbyists or for those setting off on their travels.
As you know, I love getting my blends out to colour in. However, this stamp set also features two step stamping. Meaning you don’t need to use blends like I have, meaning the one less item from the list of items used. And in true style, I have shown a second colour way in my video below.
I love the dimension of the fussy cut train against the stamped background, highlighting the sentiment and tying the whole project together. For the baby boy version, I used Balmy Blue where I featured Petal Pink for a baby girl inspired card. But you may not wish to follow the traditions and go with something a little brighter.
And best of all? You don’t even have to use a train, the stamp set also features a car and a helicopter! Perfect! But I think I prefer the train – reminds me of Thomas the Tank Engine that I used to watch as a child. Which do you prefer?
