Today I’m sharing the love with this card made from the Last A Lifetime Bundle. This is a bundle themed around love and weddings and features some gorgeous dies. Today I’ve chosen to focus on the floral images in the stamp set and their matching dies.
For my card background I chose a sheet of petel pink designer paper which has Champagne foiling on from the Parisian Blossoms collection, I love this design for backgrounds.
I stamped my greeting onto the second largest die from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. To add some more of the champagne colour to my project I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and stamped the edges of my nested Label with the large floral die from the stamp set, this adds a nice subtle shimmer to the greeting panal and ties it togther with the background.
To finish the card I added two of the large stamped floral springs which have been stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured with Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. As a finishing touch I added coloured the berries on the floral springs with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint using a Blender Pen to apply the paint to my project.
This card would make a lovely wedding or anniversary card or just to let someone know you love them whatever time of year.
I love the new Detailed Heart Die and have seensome gorgeous cards made with it, check out Pintrest if you don’t believe me! Today I’m sharing three cards I’ve made using the inlay technique where you add some of the die-cut off cuts back into the orginal die cut. I love doing this as I find it very calming and thearputic, something which is much needed in this household at this time of year.
This first card was very quick to put together using a Merry Merlot card base and a single Gold Foil die cut of the Deatiled Hearts Die, I left this one I’m empty so you can see what a great die this is all on its own. I simple greeting from the Heart to Heart stamp set stamped in Merry Merlot and punched out with the Story Label Punch and the card is done.
For the second card I used Very Vanilla as a card base and added Pretty Peacock into the colour scheme also. I used Gold Foil again to cut my main die image but also cut a one from Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock. I then inlaid some of the left over heart back into their slots on the gold foil outline. I’ve used some old Multipurpose adhesive sheets to stick my die cuts down, this makes the techinque nice and clean as your basically just playing with stickers.
For my final card today I used Very Vanilla as a card base again but used Merry Merlot as my outline die colour. I then filled in every heart space with either Merry Merlot, Pretty Peacok or Gold Foil. I love how this card turned out, I think adding Pretty Peacock into the mix has made the card elegant and suitable to give to anyone.
Hope this has inspired you to pull out the Detailed Hearts Die and have a play.
For today’s card I’ve gone for sharing the love. A perfect card to send to that special someone who knows how much you love all things coffee.
This card was really quick to make with just a few layers and die cuts. The card base is Early Expresso measuring 14.5cm x 21cm, folded and scored at 10.5cm. The next layer is Powder Pink measuring 14cm x 10cm and then there is a final layer cut from the Coffee Break DSP measuring 13.5cm x 9.5cm.
Next add a strip of the garden green heart paper from the Coffee Break DSP measuring 14.5cm x 4cm. To get the ripped edge measure the paper 14.5cm x 6cm and then take an aqua painter and a ruler and measuring 1cm in from each edge, run the aqua painter down the line and then rip. The water from the aqua painter will soften the paper and give the ripped edges.
Cut the coffee cup out using the Coffee Cup Framelits and Powder Pink and Early Expresso cardstock. Cut out the largest oval from the Stitched Shape Framelits in Whisper white and stick to the middle of the card. Arrange the coffee cup elements on the card as shown in photo.
Stamp the heart from Merry Café in Powder Pink onto Whisper White and adhere to the coffee cup using Stampin Dimensional’s. To make the additional small hearts I used the Window Box Thinlits dies and Powder Pink cardstock. Similar items you could use are the hearts die from Everyday Jars or the heart on the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.
To finish off the inside of the card I stamped some hearts in Powder Pink in the bottom right hand corner of a piece of Whisper White measuring 14cm x 10cm and stuck to the inside of the card using Fast Fuse Adhesive.
Hope you enjoyed today’s card and pop back tomorrow for my final card in Cups and Coffee week.
I wanted to create a softer looking card today so chose to work with the gorgeous watercolour pencils. I really love how this card turned out and think its my favourite project with this stamp set to date. Continue reading “Romantic Watercolour Card with Sealed With Love”
