Healing Hugs are something I think we’re all desperate for right now, so why not send a card one to those you care about. I’ve paired this sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set with products from the Tropical Oasis Suite and the new Ornate Garden Suite.
I used the Mini Blossom punch from the Sale-A-Bration Rewards for the flowers, this will be available again in the new catalogue on June 3rd.
Today I’m sharing a project made using the Power of Hope bundle from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. This bundle is only available free with a purchase of £90 or more but I think its worth it as the images in the stamp set are lovely and I love the Stone 3D Embossing folder, this is one product I’m hoping carries over to the new catalogue as I have plenty of ideas for it.
The background is quite simple with just a layer of Petal Pink cardstock run througth the 3D Stone Embossing folder, but this adds so much detail I don’t think the card needed anything else.
I stamped the chinese lady in Tuxedo Black ink onto a Very Vanilla cardstock circle from the Layering Circles dies. I then coloured her in with Petal Pink and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and mounted her onto a Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Circle before adding to my card.
I added a length of the Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon to the card to bring out the Vanilla colour of the card base. A simple card but perfect for any occassion.
I’m going all modern and monochromatic for today’s card and simply using black and white. I’m loving how versatile the Blended Seasons bundle is, the combinations really do seem to be endless.
This time I simply stamped the large floral image on black cardstock and embossed in white, a technique which looks stunning no matter what image you use. Just remember to use your embossing buddy so you don’t end up with little white powder flecks everywhere.
Using the Stamparatus I was able to perfectly line up the greeting in my frame die cut from the Stitched Labels Framelits. The black 1/8″ cord trim works well to “fasten” the frame to my card. The background paper if from the Tropical Chic 6×6 DSP Stack which has a few black and white pattern options in it, if you don’t have this you could easily make your own or use the Petal Passion DSP from the Spring/Summer catalogue if you have any left. A few faceted black gems and the card is finished.
Here’s a look at what I did to the inside, just a simple bit of stamping.
Today I’m sharing another Christmas card made with the Blended Seasons Bundle of products. This time I used the holly stamp to create a back ground for my card and then I coloured it with Poppy Parade and Garden Green Stampin’ markers.
The gold embossed sentiment comes from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, which again I have added to my card using the gorgeous stitched frames from the Stitched Seasons die set. I will really miss these next month when they’re no longer available, so if you’re thinking about making purchase I would hurry before they sell out.
I added the bow die cut and a strip of Poppy Parade cardstock to make the card look like it was a Christmas present.
A little holly and a sentiment finish off the inside. Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project.
For today’s project I was aiming for a simple one layer card, but I got a bit carried away with the ink blending and made a bit of a mess. So I’ve added a copper layer behind my blending and mounted on a new card blank.
I love the addition of Mango Melody to our colour palette as I think it is the perfect middle colour between Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. All three have blended together to create the background and I love how rich and autumnal this card looks.
Some Copper embossing of the leaves stamp and some die cut Copper Foil leaves finish the card off. This was a very quick card to make but I think its turned out really well. I think the corn stamp would work equally well.
