There are just a few hours left for Sale-A-Bration 2020. Now is your last chance to get a free gift with your $50 or $100 purchase. These products will not be carried over into the 2020-2021 annual catalog. Here is a card I made with the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper. The colors in these papers are bold and bright!
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut piece of Highland Heather cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score and fold in half.
Cut piece of Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Cut bottom edge into a triangular point. I made a template from a piece of Whisper White cardstock, traced around the pointed edge and cut out with paper snips.
Randomly stamp small flower image from the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set with Gorgeous Grape ink on bottom half of card front. Adhere the DSP to the card. This stamp set is also a SAB item.
For the butterfly, cut piece of DSP at 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. I used the same paper design and cut it with die in the Springtime Impressions set in the annual catalog. At first I thought I’d use the reverse side of the paper, which is Lovely Lipstick and looks like a watercolor wash, but I liked how the effect of the floral side of the paper looked much better. Attach the butterfly by adding Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the center of the piece and then slightly curl in the wings. Add four Noble Peacock Rhinestones along the center for some added bling.
For the sentiment I used the Tags in Bloom stamp set, another SAB item. Stamp with Coastal Cabana ink on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Punch out with the Label Me Fancy Punch from the mini catalog.
For the Coastal Cabana piece I used the Happy Birthday stamp from the Layered With Kindness set from the mini catalog. I didn’t want the birthday greeting so I colored only the frame design with a Stampin’ Write Marker. You can also stamp the entire image because when you tape the sentiment piece down it will be covered up. Punch out with the Label Me Lovely Punch. Adhere greeting to this piece and attach to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Hello! I hope you had a wonderful July 4th holiday weekend! I’m back to posting more regularly again after having to take a short break. I took a few days two weeks ago to visit my home town of New York City to visit with friends I haven’t seen in a number of years. When I arrived back home I unexpectedly got project work for my information consulting business from a new client, which was a very pleasant surprise! So, some of the cards I made for my June club and a private workshop were photographed but I never got to upload them until now. Over the next few days I will be sharing them with you.
Today I’m sharing one of several cards I made using the gorgeous Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper. These papers look like impressionist paintings and could easily stand on their own with little embellishment. This card also features the butterfly from the Springtime Impressions Dies.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base: Cut piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half.
Cut piece of Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ . Cut piece of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon at 4 1/2″ and attach to the DSP, folding the ends in to the back of the paper. Attach piece to card base.
Use a die cutting machine to cut the butterfly from a piece of Purple Posy cardstock. Attach to center of card over the ribbon by dotting liquid glue around the butterfly.
Cut a strip of vellum cardstock at 1/2″ and stamp the greeting from the Floral Essence stamp set with Blackberry Bliss ink. Make sure the ink is dry before cutting flags at both ends of the strip. I’ve found that sometimes the ink smudges on the vellum if you touch it because it doesn’t always dry instantly. Attach to center of the butterfly.
For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Cut a strip of the DSP at 1″ x 4″ and attach to bottom of white piece. Attach to inside of card.
