For today’s Floral Friday I’m sharing two very simple cards made with the Flowing Flowers stamp set, which has beautiful big flower images perfect for covering your whole card.
This first card uses Highland Heather and Soft Succulent inkpads to stamp the flowers with.
The second one was done with Stampin’ Markers brushed on the stamps and gives you a much bolder image. Which do you prefer?
The sentiments for both cards were stamped on diecuts from the Tasteful Labels Dies which have now unfortunately sold out. For an alternative you could use the labels in the Potted Succulents or Seasonal Labels Dies. In the new catalogue there is also a die set called All That which would also work.
Here are three ideas for you using the All Together Designer Paper all using the pattern with the row of hands.
For this first card I used most of the new Stampin’ Blends skin tone colours to colour the hands and then added the Here For You die onto some vellum just to help it stand out from the background of hands.
This second card uses the same layout but I’ve swapped the skin tones for a rainbow of hands in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue Night of Navy and Blackberry Bliss.
My third card was a happy accident as when I turned the rainbow hands sheet over to adhered to the Basic Black base I loved what I found…so made that into a card too!
This card is my favourite and think it shows the more you create the more the creative ideas flow.
There are plenty of other great designs in the All Togther Designer Paper which is fast becoming one of my favourites to reach for.
Today sees the launch of the Waves of the Ocean collection featuring a brand new early release bundle from the new catalogue coming in May. The stamps and dies in this bundle feature a mix of waves and sentiments. I love the large wave dies.
The collection also includes some limited edition foil cardstock in Night of Navy, Coastal Cabana and Silver, designer paper featuring some great wave themed prints and blue rhinestones in Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Coastal Cabana. These three products are available until May 2 2022 or until it sells out.
For my Simple to Stepped Up project this week I’m using the Kite Delight stamp set and the new Cloud Punch.
For my Simple card I’ve just stamped onto Basic white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends.
For the second step I’ve added in some Pool Party clouds and then stamped the kites onto some of the Simply Marbleous Designer Paper, cut them out and adhered over the top of the clouds. I’ve also added a Pool Party matt behind the stamped to add some colour.
For my Stepped Up version I added in punched clouds from the Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Paper and used some black baker’s twine for the tail of the kite along with cut out bows.
Which is your favourite version? I like the middle version myself simple and stylish.
