Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’d like to share two cards with you from the “Hey Girlfriend” stamp set which will be retiring at the end of this month! This set is so fun and versatile you are going to fall in love with it.
My first card highlights one of the “girlfriends”, the lovely True Love Designer Series paper from the “Love You Always” suite, and the Oval Occasions Bundle. 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.
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.
This paper was from our January Sale-a-bration products … Our NEXT Sale-a-bration event will kick off August 3rd!! Sale-a-brations are always a big event because for every $50 you spend, you can chose an exclusive FREE Sale-a-bration item!!
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.
It’s so sad … the Hey Girlfriend stamp set, the True Love Designer Paper, and the Oval Occasions Stamp Set are on the RETIRING LIST and will be gone at the end of this month …. only 7 more days before they are gone forever.
