No need for embellishments when you have small stamps! (Just A Note Catherine Pooler Designs)

Some stamp sets can come with really small stamps. You may struggle to use them, but why not look at them as embellishments. These are perfect for finishing a card off and today I’ve used the small dot stamp from the new Notes of Love stamp set for this simple easy card. The coordinating die set also comes with some mini hearts which also work well as embellishments and it is a fantastic staple sentiment set that features in the Just A Note release from Catherine Pooler Designs.

Embellishing with small stamps

Choosing colours that pop!

For this card, stamp off ink blending Melon Ice ink over the new In The Square stencil onto a white card. To choose a colour to pop off this background I got out my Catherine Pooler colour wheel for the Spa Ink collection.  

Embellishing with small stamps

I used the wheel to choose the complementary colours to Melon Ice ink which was Pucker Up ink and Glam ink. You can find the colour wheels here! I stamped the ribbon banner from the Notes of Love stamp set in Pucker Up ink

A sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped on top of the banner in Glam ink. To add dimension to the banner, I used a Tombow Blending pen to add shadow using the pen to pick up Glam ink. Using the coordinating Notes of Love die set to cut the sentiment out. 

Using small stamps to embellish

Before adhering the sentiment down to the card panel, I use the small dot stamp from the Notes of Love stamp set to embellish the card in Pucker Up and Glam ink. Thes colours pop of the background.

In addition, I also die cut mini hearts using the mini heart die from the Notes Of Love coordinating die set. Foam mount these hearts onto the card embellishing the design.
