Lots of Bots

Today’s sneak peek features the Lots of Bots stamp set and the luscious new In-Color “Melon Mambo”. Do you remember a few posts ago when I was crying over the loss of Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze? Well, I have a secret to tell you…I absolutely LOVE these new In-Colors! Melon Mambo, as it name suggests, is a wonderful “watermelon-y” pink which pairs perfectly with Basic Black and Gray. Yummy!

  • Prepare a standard card base from Whisper White. I layered this with a selection from Pattern Pack Designer Series Paper II, a Level I Hostess Gift.
  • Ink the “Birthday Bot” from Lots of Bots with Basic Black and stamp onto Whisper White. Mat onto Basic Black and then Melon Mambo. (Tip: Use the Stamp-a-ma-jg for perfect placement. Since I see “crooked”, my Stamp-a-ma-jig is a lifesaver!)
  • Using the Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker, color in selected parts of the “Bot”. Adhere to the card base. This is the first year that Stampin’ Up! has offered Stampin’ Write Markers in the In-Colors. How perfect is this?
  • Layer Melon Mambo Grosgrain Ribbon over a strip of Melon Mambo card stock and adhere to the card base.
  • Ink the “Binary Code” stamp from Lots of Bots with Basic Black and stamp onto Whisper White. Mat onto Basic Black. Position and adhere onto the Melon Mambo strip as illustrated in the photograph.
  • And just that quickly, your card is done!

I added a cute little brad that I had left over from a scrapbook layout. I felt that it added just the right touch and gave dimension to the card. Stampin‘ Up! does include a “Bolts and Screw” stamp with this set, for a touch of whimsy.

The StampinSchach Tip of the Day: When designing a layout, I always take into consideration the personality of the stamp set. Lots of Bots is perfect for clean and simple layouts, and therefore would be the perfect choice in a card emergency. Kids and adults alike will appreciate its humor.

  1. Patterns Pack. I didn’t notice this set! Excellent with the Melon Mambo! Great job overall.

  2. The entire card is a winner . . . but my eye zooms right to the brad . . . a perfect robot “bolt.” Nice job! Hugs, M

  3. You’re right! These colors do look great together!

  4. You’re the first I’ve heard describe Melon Mambo perfectly.

    Everyone is saying melon shouldn’t be pink.

    BUT I don’t think they thought of a watermelon!

    I love your bot card – too cute. 🙂

  5. Great idea to add a tip of the day!

    Love the bots! You inspire me everyday!
