Use a Simple Layout to Create a Fashionable Card

Last weekend I had a fun Zoom get together with some of my class attendees. We created a couple of cards together using whatever supplies each one had. One of the cards was a mystery card. It was even a mystery to me!. I provided instructions as we went along. It was quite interesting to see what each of us came up with. I’m sharing with you the card I came up with using the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.

By adding a Smoky Slate card base, it shifted the card from being very bright to a more subtle look which is what I was going for. I stamped the sentiment in Basic Gray to complement the Purple Posy cardstock it was layered on. 

The lipsticks were fussy cut out of the DSP and arranged with the flowers, which I coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights August – Encouragement

Thank you for stopping by my blog, Stamping Flair, today. Demonstrators from around the world are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and the theme this month is Encouragement.

I chose hues of greens and blues for this card to make it bright and cheery and perfect for our theme. 

Oh Darling, you are fabulous ….I love this sentiment and think it would really lift someone up. 

The background was created by stamping the leaves in Soft Sea Foam and Granny Apple Green. I love the bright, summery feel of these shades of green. I then added the heat embossed, Gold leaves which really add to the cheering up sentiment of my card. 

To create the double colour on the sentiment, I used the Stamparatus. First I stamped in Pretty Peacock. Then moving the cardstock a tiny bit to the right, I masked the sentiment with washi tape and inked the stamp with Granny Apple Green. Then I stamped the sentiment which creates the pretty double colour on the word ‘darling’. 

I mounted the sentiment on another oval die cut from Pretty Peacock Cardstock and embossed with the Tufted Embossing Folder. This has then been adhered onto a Soft Sea Foam oval to create a pretty, focal mage. 

The bow was formed by snipping a section of the linen ribbon apart. I created a mock bow using glue dots to secure in place. 

With card making, we have the ability to brighten someone’s day by giving them a handmade card. Who could you encourage and share your beautiful cards with today? A birthday, congratulations, anniversary, thinking of you or just because… the recipient will love it.
