Today I’m sharing with you a quick card I made with the free Sale-A-Bration stamp set All Adorned. I love the simplicity of this stamp set, its perfect to work with when you just want to stamp and make pretty patterns, if like me you need this one in your collection then place a £45.00 order before the end of the month and its yours for free.
I picked a colour scheme of Soft Seafoam and Merry Merlot to work with today as these are my favourite colours from this catalogue’s colour refresh and I love how good they look together, this is the perfect combination for a male or female card and its one all definitely be using again soon.
I stamped the Soft Seafoam images first randomly all over my cardstock and then overstamped with the smaller medallion type stamp. These two stamps match up perfectly to create a lovely two-toned pattern. Simply line up the four outer dots on the smaller stamp with the circles on the larger stamp and hey presto, gorgeous background.
To help my sentiment stand out I used the Everyday Label punch and the starburst punch to create a couple of layers.
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s quick and simple project.
Today’s card is featuring snowflakes instead of stars, which come from the Flurry of Wishes and Colorful Seasons stamp sets. I’m a huge fan of Pool Party and Island Indigo for wintery themed cards, especially snowflakes and love how the background of this card turned out.
I then was struggling a bit with what else to add to the card to finish it off without detracting too much from the background, enter the Merry Little Labels stamp set and punch. I love this set and can see many uses for the various sentiment labels in the set, but the Let It Snow one was the perfect image to use as a topper for my card.
A quick stamp and punch with the Everyday Label punch which I love and the topper is done (Stampin’ Up! if you’re reading this please, please carry this punch over to the next catalogue!). I added a couple more punched labels in Island Indigo to give a border and a extra pop, simply glue the Island Indigo labels together along one edge and then pop the stamped image in the middle lining up with the oval at the top.
A little strip of the super shiny Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon and a few enamel dots and the card is ready, super quick and easy to mass produce for this years Christmas cards.
For the inside of the card I added a Whisper White insert with a couple of snowflakes stamped in Pool Party.
