Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I’m bringing in the designer paper again … Remember that the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper in one of the TOP 3 Picks and I have three great cards direct from our main Stampin’ Up offices. The first card on the left starts out simple – basic stamping and then embellished to step it up card by card …
We begin with the card on the left and the Mint Macaron card base. Stamp the sentiments in Night of Navy and the heart image in Flirty Flamingo ink using the stamp-off technique. Then, punch five banners from our Flower & Field Designer Series Paper using the Banners Pick a Punch. Adhere the banners to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and tie with a Linen Thread bow. Done! You have the perfect, easy card to let someone know you care.
The second card in the center steps up to the next level by spritzing with Bumblebee Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill using the Stampin’ Spritzer. Embellish the banners with flowers die cut using the Wreath Builder Dies, and add 2020–2022 In Color Enamel Dots. Die cut the sentiment using the Stitched Rectangles Dies, then finish with a fussy-cut, stamped heart popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Pretty sweet!
For our artfully avid card on the right, we adhered additional flowers fussy cut from Designer Series Paper, plus some Vellum Cardstock. For an extra-lavish look, we layered on a die-cut heart and a fussy-cut sentiment, then amped up the artistry even more with a lacy edge made using Flower & Field Designer Series Paper and the Budding Blooms Dies.
Stepping up your cards is so much fun! Start simple and go big. Mix and match until you find the look that is right for you. You could even invite friends over to brainstorm avid and artfully avid alternatives for the casual card. We can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon! And if you live near me … it’s way to cold to go outside!!
Thank you so much for visiting me and my blog today. Enjoy and have a great day~
