I just adore this card, it makes my heart smile each time I see it. It is simple but complicated at the same time. I used lemon drop ink pad and randomly applied that ink to the whimsy wallpaper stamp and applied that to my whip cream card stock. This was a new technique for me and even though I didn’t have full control of the ink on the background it worked in my favor.
I hope you take risks with your inks and enjoy the end results as much as I have.
I adore making these types of bows for my cards, no need to worry about the tails and if they are even. Simply take ribbon and make a loop, then wrao the center loop to complete the look.
The stamps use the 1st and 2nd generation of stamping.
Hope you enjoy your day!
The papers and enamel dots are Simple Stories I Am collection. I purchased them via the AllScrapbookSteals site that offers 25% off daily. I have to confess, that is where I get a majority of my papers because they carry the companies I love the most.
This is one of my favorite sets, it is so veritile and that cute label stamp is so fun! I used the tecnique of second generation stamping, for the lighter colors directly over the leaves. I cuto out the other flowers and popped them up with foam squares. I have to admit, I did that because I was too lazy to do any masking. The sponge effect really pulled those sequins into the center point of the card.
Hope you enjoy the card and are imspired to make your own card this week.
I loved how the stamp of the month image fit perfectly with the crowns. I used the journey glaze mixed with glitter on a few of the jewels of the crown and enjoyed the layering to finish the look of this card.
I saw this layout idea from pintrest and just love how versatile it can be. It stamps up so fast and the flower can be changed out for hearts, clovers or anything image to match your sentiment.
to make: the card panel is stamps with the different colors, then you add the top layer by cutting off an inch or 1/5 inches. They slice that layer in two pieces, I traditionally stamp my sentiment first to determine where to cut. Then mount those two pieces with the foam squares.
I cut out the circle for the center of the card and then lined up the lemongrass card stock and cut out the pierced dots. I stamped the branch over the center of the card then added the cute flowers to the branch. I love those flowers from the bachelorette set. Adding the sentiment to the center flower to add in my message. Finished off by sponging the edges.
To assemble the card, I used the foam squares to give it dimension.
I hope you enjoyed and are inspired.
Nontraditional valentine days colors are a great way to share the holiday with others, like teachers, pastors or neighbors, that you want to share your kindness but not get all mushy and lovey dovey in the process.
Hearts are one of the easiest and most common shapes for card making and this design can be easily changed to have different words.
