I love stamp sets that have little flowers and leaves so you can create quick and simple backgrounds just by randomly stamping. Thats one reason the Framed For You stamp set has been one of my first cgoices from the new catalogue, alongside the floral images there are some great sentiments and that great frame image which works perfectly with our Layering Squares Dies.
For this card I used a bold colour combination of Gorgeous Grape, Just Jade, Pool Party and Cinnamon Cider and I love how these colours look together.
I love how this turned out and think its a great design you could mass produce easily to build your card stash, its also one where you could change up the colours easily.
With this card I’m celebrating all things purple with a mix of Gorgoeus Grape, Highland Heather and Purple Posy. The main flower was stamped with Highland Heather and Purple Posy centres and a little pop of green with Granny Apple Green leaves.
I matted my stamped panel, which was a Stitched Rectangle onto a larger Stitched Rectangle. This was then adhered to a matt of 14.4cm x 10cm of Highland Heather. I then added a strip of the Gorgoeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon across the front before it was stuck onto a card base of Whisper White measuring 14.9cm x 10.5cm.
I finished the card off with a greeting stamped in Gorgeous Grape on a Stiched Square.
I wanted to share with you another card I’ve made with the Painted Seasons stamp set and matching framelits as this sets will no longer be available after Sunday as March 31st signals the end of this year’s Sale-A-Bration
I chose to use Gorgeous Grape as despite being a purple I haven’t really warmed to this colour yet, I think its because its more on the blue blue side of purple. It’s quite a bright colour when you see a full sheet of cardstock so I’ve toned it done by adding a vellum layer. The fancy edge at the bottom is cut using the Delicate Lace Egelits Dies which I think really adds a wow to this card.
The greeting comes from the More Than Word stamp set which has sentiments to co-ordinate with many of our Sale-A-Bration sets, this will also be gone after Sunday ao grab it while you can as it has a lovely mix of fonts. I stamped the greeting on a frame from the Stitched Label Framelits as I thought the edge work well with the lacy die.
To finish the card I added some leaves and one of those gorgeous flowers from the Painted Leaves stamp set, every time I stamp this flower I’m amazed by how much detail there is in just one stamp, its stunning!!
This week all my projects will focus of the How Sweet It Is Suite of products which are perfect for birthdays, Valentine’s and anytime you want to share something sweet with someone. For today’s project I’ve made a very simple card featuring fussy cut lollipops from the How Sweet It Is DSP.
For a little extra something to add to the card I covered both lollipops in a thin layer of glue from the Fine-Tip Glue, this dries shiny and clear so gives the effect of a sticky lollipop, its very hard to see on the photographs though.
A simple strip of Whisper White helps the greeting to stand out. This card could easily feature any of the jars featured in the stamp set if you didn’t want to fussy cut the lollipops.
Hope you can pop back tomorrow when I have another project with this suite to share with you.
After I created my trio of cards for the Pootler’s team Spring/Summer blog hop I had this background piece made from the Crackle Paint stamp set in Gorgeous Grape so I decided to create another butterfly card.
I added a layer of vellum to the front of my Gorgeous Grape layer as it was a little over powering in such a bright colour and my butterflies were lost.
I used the Stitched scallop boarder die from the be Mine Stitched Framelits to create a banner across the card for my sentiment.
The three punched butterflies created from the two-step stamps in Butterfly Gala finish the card off and add even more dimension with their wings.
