Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Today I want to share with you another card from my Quick -n- Easy series focusing on the Designer Series Paper. My card is a bit more sophisticated than the fun and bold birthday card you saw yesterday.
Nothing says sophistication like black and white, so I pulled out the “Back to Black” Designer Series Paper. It’s like pulling out your favorite outfit from your closet! I used it as my background and with one of the banners so you could see two different patterns.
I quickly made the banners using the “Banner Framelit Dies”, this is where I introduced the Mossy Meadow, one of the new 2014-16 In-colors. I secured these to the top of the designer paper and topped it off with the beautiful Mossy Meadow Stitched Ribbon. It’s so soft and ties beautifully.
To complete the card, I chose the new “World of Dreams” stamp set found on page 127. This was on my wish list from the moment I opened the new catalog, it didn’t take long before it was in my stamp collection and I was a very happy stamper!
What a beautiful greeting … “Wishing you a wonderful journey through a world of dreams come true”. The second greeting in the set is; “The best thing about a person like you is that you bring out the best in everyone”. Perfect … perfect stamp set!
I stamped the saying in Black StazOn, then cut it out with the “Circle Framelit Dies”. Lastly, I inked up the leaves in Mossy Meadow and “stamped off” onto scrap paper before stamping over my verse. To create some dimension, I popped up the verse using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.
It is a very easy card to make and the use of the framelits make it quick and professional looking.
Now is a great time to purchase the designer papers … It’s buy 3, get 1 FREE.
Thanks again for stopping by and following along with my Quick -n- Easy series. I would love to know which one is your favorite?
Have a wonderful day ~
