Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Let’s get a close up of the Enjoy the Adventure cards … Today I will be sharing my cards from the LIVE along with the dimensions so you can recreate them for yourself because the Sale-a-bration and Mini catalogs have gone LIVE today!! Woo hooo … YOU can finally get your hands on your favorite stamps, dies and those awesome designer papers.
My first card was the “Thank You” card … the simplest of the bunch. The base comes from the Cards & Envelopes which coordinate with the Memories & More Card Pack. I simply cut down the 4″ x 6″ Thank you card to 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (so a 1/2″ off the top and 1/2″ off one side). I then colored in the THANK YOU with Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. Super Simple!
On to the next card, we begin with the Mango Melody and Petal Pink card base. These are scored for you so they fold nicely …
I took a second card base and cut off the front, then I cut the front down to 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ (you’ll get 2 from the front piece). I then layered the “heart” card which measure 3″ x 4″ … not cutting needed.
The rest is easy as I used the die cut adhesive backed elements from the sticker sheet included in the Enjoy the Adventure Memories & More Card Pack. Each of the elements were popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then brushed with Wink of Stella.
The next card also starts with the Mango Melody and Petal Pink card base…
This card is all about layers … the bottom two layers are actually 2 of the 3″ x 4″ cards from the card pack. The two smaller pieces; the Petal Pink is 4″ x 1-3/4″ and was attached vertically, then the Mango Melody piece 3-1/4″ x 3/4″ was layered vertically. Both of these smaller pieces were cut from the 1/2 front that was left over from the second card!
The Happy Birthday (popped up) and Stars are elements from the sticker sheet. The three little dots come from the Adhesive Backed Milky Dots.
Now … I have one more card to share with you. If the first card was a bit too simple for you, this card will show you how you can get the same look, but a little more jacked up …
The card begins exactly how our first card was created, except I took the left over pieces cut off and found a full “THANK YOU” to trim down and color … this will give us more dimension. Then I punched a scalloped heart from vellum to place behind the “Thank You” so it stands out more.
It’s amazing how some simple changes can add so much to a card. These card packs are fun to play with, I better pull out a scrapbook before I use up all my pieces! lol
