Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Sorry I missed you yesterday … just been feeling a little down lately but stamping and hanging out with my stampin’ friends usually gets me feeling better, so I’m back! So today I’d like to share two cards with you from the “Hey Girlfriend” stamp set! This set is so fun and versatile you are going to fall in love with it.
My first card highlights one of the “girlfriends” and two designer series paper; the lovely True Love Designer Series paper from the “Love You Always” suite, the Oval Occasions Bundle and the “Oh So Ombre” from the Sale-a-bration Catalog that you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase! It is one of the TOP 3 Customer Picks!!
The Love you Always designer paper is the backdrop to the card … those cute little polka dots really add an element of FUN to the card. The Oh So Ombre designer paper not only gives us our pop of color (Bermuda Bay) but because of the fading effect, we can stamp our greeting on there too!
Our first “girlfriend” is stamped on Basic White with our Momento Ink and colored in with the Stampin’ Blends. I have listed the colors below. They are so easy to use when coloring on your images because of the two shades that blend so effortlessly together … and I always have the color lifter by my side so I can pull some color up if needed and make those highlights pop! I finished off her outfit by adding a touch of my Wink of Stella to her top and the bow in her hair. Then added a touch of bling (because what girls doesn’t like a little bling) to the card with some Elegant Faceted Gems.
My second “girlfriend” also used the Oh So Ombre designer series paper, not only for the background … but for her dress! I just stamped her onto the designer paper and then cut out the dress. How fun is that!! The Oh So Ombre is Granny Apple Green and I teamed it up with Flirty Flamingo to really say “WOW”!! Girls love those fun bright colors.
Our girlfriend was stamped on Basic White with Momento Ink and cut out with the Rectangle Stitched dies. She too is colored with the Stampin’ Blends. These sweet girlfriends are so cute and fun to stamp with, and my favorite part is that they can be any nationality! My real friends come in all colors, so my cards reflect that … The world is full of beautiful people in every shade of color … let’s celebrate that.
The greeting comes from our Hey Girlfriend stamp set and was punched out using the the Oval Occasions punches. Add a bow and your card is complete! I had so much fun playing with this set, you are sure to see even more of these from me!
I brought in the “Oval Occasions” bundle to compliment my cards today …
First, the “So Lucky to Know You” greeting from my first “girlfriend” card came for the Oval Occasions stamp set, and the Double Oval punch was used on my second “girlfriend” card to punch out and highlight the greeting.
Cool right! I did this because … When you purchase the Hey Girlfriend stamp set, the True Love Designer Paper, and the Oval Occasions bundle you have more than enough to get your Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper for FREE!!
Thank you for joining me today, I hope you have a great day!
