Have you tried our new Blending Brushes yet? I love them, they are super soft and make making beautifully blended backgrounds much easier than using sponges as they leave no lines.
For this card I’ve used the Detailed Hearts Die as a stencil instead of a die. I first used the brushes to blend a layer of Flirty Flamingo all over the card. I then place over the die, held in palce with washi tape and used the brushes with Real Red, making the blending darker down the centre of the card. I love the effect this has created.
I stamped Happy Valentine’s Day from the Heart to Heart stamp set onto a label cut from the Tasteful Labels Dies. I added a little touch of the Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon to the edge of the label and finished the card off with some of the little Real Red Resin hearts from the Snail Mail Suite.
The Flower & Field Designer Paper is one of the free paper packs available this Sale-A-Bration with an order over £45.00. It’s probably not a pack I would have purchased myself despite it being floral as it’s quite dark, however after making this set of cards I quite like it.
I’ve kept the cards simple and let the paper do the talking, with just a simple matt in a coordinating colour, which I think helps the patterns pop.
The sentiments come from the stamp set Heal the Heart which is also a free Sale-A-Bration set. To finish off the cards I added some of the Whisper white Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and some Basic Rhinestones.
These two are my favourites, probabley because they both feel very summery and I’m really missing the sun at the moment. Which one is your favourite?
I love the sassy girl images in the Hey Girlfriend stamp set, I think will make great cards for girls of any age to recieve. I know my seven year old has loved stamping with these more than me so far.
Today I’ve kept the cards fairly simple by just colouring with Stampin’ Blends and adding so of the Oh So Ombre 6 x 6 dsp pack as a background. This paper pack is availbale during Sale-A-Bration and is proving very popular.
I’ve used the largest scalloped square frame from the Stitched So Sweetly die set on this first card. I also had to add in the little dog as it reminds me of the one from Bella & Friends a couple of years ago, so cute!
For this card I stamped the sentiment using the Many Messages stamp and die set. This combo is great because with one stamp you get 19 messages and then simply place the die over and they all cut out in one go, so a great addition if you need a lot of sentiments quickly.
