Today I just wanted to make a card which shows off my favourite pattern in the All My Love DSP, this red floral is gorgeous I would love to have it as wallpaper in my bedroom. I’ll have to settle for layers on cards though I think.
I’m not normally a person who gravitates towards the stamp sets which contain large greetings as I struggle with how to use them but this greeting from Amazing Life works really well this paper and I feel it makes the perfect card to send to someone special to let them know you care.
I fussy cut out the banner part of the greeting just to add a little dimension to the card, maybe I should have done this in a different colour but I can’t decide, what do you think Lovely Lipstick or should I have chosen something to make it pop more.
Do you have a favourite Stampin’ Up! paper, I’d love to know which is your favourite?
Can you believe I’ve had the Pop of Petals stamp set and matching Four-Petal Flower Punch and they’ve not been used, shocking right? So today’s the day I inked it up and created the simple but stunning birthday card.
Three stamped and punched flowers in Berry Burst and a little foliage stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and you have the main part of the card.
Next simply add your chosen greeting to the centre of the stamping, my sentiment came from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, then you have an almost complete card.
To finish the card I added a large Gold Facet Gem to the centre of each flower, aren’t they just the perfect fit?
So today I’m bringing #SimpleStamping to the Vibrant Vases set. I was so pleased to see this in the new catalogue as its adds even more versatility to using the Varied Vases Bundle which is one of my favourites from the Annual Catalogue.
For this project I’ve used just four inks (Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Tuxedo Black Memento) and the stamp set.
Although these are photopolymer stamps and easy to line up I would suggest using the Stamp-a-ratus if your going to create an image where things need lining up in straight lines like the vase on the shelf. This would also make creating multiples of this card very quick.
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s #SimpleStamping and a quick look at Vibrant Vases.
For today’s flowery themed post I’m going to share with you some flowers I’ve made from the spikey leafed die in the Nature’s Root Framelits. I’m not sure if anyone else sees flowers when they look at that die but I did and after a little play I came up with these cute little flowers, that are quite simple to make.
- You will need to cut four flowers in your desired colour for each flower you plan to make, I chose Berry Burst. You will also need to punch a circle from the 1/2″ circle punch, I chose Powder Pink.
- Scrunch up each of your leaves so your petals have more texture.
- Take a Stampin’ Dimensional as the centre of your flower and stick on your first petal. I would recommend using the Silicone Craft Sheet for this but mine’s gone walk about…if you find it please send it back 😉
- Layer all four petals around the dimensional and adhere using Mini Glue Dots, the new Take Your Pick tool was perfect for this. Finish the flower centres with the punched circle and a Clear Faceted Gem.
Here’s an example of a finished card to show you how lovely these flowers look when used, a few stamped leaves and you have a completed project.
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s quick tutorial.
Colouring is one of my favourite past-times while watching tv as I can’t just sit and watch I have to have my hands busy. Last night I was using the new Water Colour Assortment 2 pencils to colour these flowers from the Blended Seasons Stamp set.
I love how some simple colouring has turned into a beautiful card this morning. The colours used were just Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and the smallest amount of Crushed Curry, but the image looks like I used many more shades.
I was going to mount the image onto just a white card base but I think the added black layer gives the card a real “pop”. I stamped the greeting using Stazon on some vellum as I still wanted all of the flowers to be seen.
A super simple card which looks beautiful, now I’m off to do some more colouring.
