And although there are some incredibly beautiful and elaborate cards out there, there are just as many that show less truly can be more!
Here’s my Stampin’Up! Thanks a bouquet bunch card and video. Other than the framelits this would definitely qualify as a quick and easy card! Very minimal stamping… lol…
Start with a whisper white cardstock base cut at 8.5″ X 5.5″. Score and fold inhalf at 4.25″. The Wild Wasabi layer is cat at 5.25″ X 4″. The top whisper white layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″. Use the bouquet stem framelit on this layer then attach.
Run two sets of twine and four sets of small flower bunches through the bigshot. Then run four sets of bigger flower bunches through the bigshot. Arrange them on your page and use tombow liquid glue to attach them.
Stamp the sentiment in Garden Green ink and remember to make your envelope pretty!
This post highlights the sponging technique for the Stampin’Up! Remarkable You Calla Lily Card. I really love the soft look of sponging!
Start with a Pool Party card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″. Score and fold at 5.5″. Cut the next layer of Calypso Coral at 5.25″ x 4″, and cut the next layer at 5″ x 3.75″. Stamp the flowers and the sentiment on the smallest Vanilla layer using the momento ink.
Add some ink to your sponge and swirl off most on a scratch paper so you wont get streaks of ink on your card… (I will add a video to show the sponging technique 🙂 Always start sponging lightly. If you want area of deeper color you can go back and add more, but you can’t take ink off!
I absolutely love this Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card, it’s just one of those that makes my heart happy!
Start with a Mint Macaron cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″. Score and fold at 5.5″ to create a portrait card. Cut the Very Vanilla layer at 5.25″ x 4″. Stamp your leaves onto this layer. I like to start with the lightest color in triple step stamping. For the single leaves in between I used the two lightest colors and stamped off first! See the video tutorial below!
Once the stamping is done wrap the vanilla ribbon around and attach to the base. Stamp the sentiment onto Very Vanilla and punch out. Punch out another piece in Mint and cut that one in half lengthwise to create a frame. Pop up and add a knot. Remember, make the envelope pretty!
Stampin’Up! Touches of Texture Floral All Occasion card
This Stampin’Up! Touches of Texture Floral All Occasion card was a big hit at our recent class. I love the fun spattered look!
I started this card with a Whisper White Thick cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″. Score and fold at 5.5″ Cut a second whisper white cardstock at 5.25″ x 4″ and stamp the flowers towards the top using Momento ink.
Use Melon Mambo large spatter, Island Indigo small spatter, and an Old Olive marker for the leaves! Add the melon mambo along the bottom cut at 1.5″ x 4″. Wrap the White Organza ribbon around and attach to the base. I used a small piece of Whisper White twine to bunch up the ribbon before I attached the Mambo bow with a glue dot.
Stamp the sentiment on a strip of white paper and flag the ends. I like to add a dimensional to pop up the middle and then curl up the ends.
We did this Stampin’Up! Mixed Drinks Beer Star card at my last Stamp A Stack event. I always try to do a masculine card, but this would also be a great card for a beer loving gal!
Start with a Very Vanilla card base cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″. Score and fold in half at 4.25″. The next layer of Soft Suede is cut at 5.25″ x 4″ and the top Very Vanilla layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″. Don’t adhesive yet!
Cut a length of burlap ribbon about 6.5″ tie a knot toward one end and pass it through the star, now attach the vanilla and suede layer and attach the burlap ribbon. Now you can attach the layers to the vanilla base.
Stamp the Beer outline in early espresso ink, and the “beer” in delightful dijon. (I stamped off twice first to lighten the color) Remember to make your envelope pretty!
