I love getting inspired from the sample projects that Stampin' Up! features in its catalogs! Today's pretty cards are straight from the Sale-a-Bration brochure and they are so quick & easy to reproduce! It's a perfect example of how you don't have to spend a lot of time to create amazing handmade cards!
Heartfelt Bloom—Begin this card by stamping the Heartfelt Blooms floral image Archival Basic Grey ink onto a 4" x 4-1/4" piece of Whisper White. Then, simply use an Aqua Painter to create a wash of Powder Pink ink color over the background and let dry.
Background Basics—Adhere a 1" x 4-1/4" strip of the Fresh Fig striped Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper under each side of the stamped layer with SNAIL, then mount onto a Powder Pink card base.
Sweet Sentiment—Stamp the Heartfelt Blooms greeting in Fresh Fig ink onto Whisper White cardstock then punch out with the 1-1/2" Circle Punch. Adhere a folded strip of Fresh Fig Finely Woven Ribbon under the circle with a strong adhesive like Tear & Tape or Fast Fuse, then pop up the sentiment with Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—Tie a White Baker's Twine bow onto a Fresh Fig Mini Tassel, then attach the tassel to the sentiment with a Glue Dot.
Here's another quick & cute Heartfelt Blooms card that's super-easy to reproduce! You can create a stack of these lovely "thank you" cards in no time at all!
Heartfelt Bloom—This card is stamped with the beautiful floral Heartfelt Blooms images all over a 3-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock in Sweet Sugarplum ink. It's mounted onto a Sweet Sugarplum card base with SNAIL.
Ribbon Décor—The banner under the sentiment is created with two pieces of Pool Party 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon adhered side-by-side with Tear & Tape or Fast Fuse. A little Silver Metallic Thread was wrapped around the card front a few times then tied into a bow that will peek out from under the sentiment.
Sweet Sentiment—Stamp the Heartfelt Blooms greeting in Basic Gray Archival ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then punch with the Tailored Tag Punch, then pop up over the ribbon with Dimensionals.
