Summer Silhouettes with Tiny Tags

With the fantastic summer-like temperatures we’ve been having here in Portland, I thought that I’d share a quick summery card with you today.  This card was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments #156 Sketch Challenge.  I used the Summer Silhouettes and Tiny Tags stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create this card.

Summer Silhouettes

I started by stamping the flower and stem images from the Summer Silhouettes stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on Sahara Sand card stock.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Rose Red card stock, then to the card base with SNAIL.  Then I adhered a strip of 1-1/4″ Two-Tone Ribbon to the card front with SNAIL.  I stamped the flower images (using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement) in Rose Red and Wild Wasabi ink on Sahara Sand card stock and cut the image out with an Ovals Collection Framelits Die.  I adhered an oval that I’d cut from Rose Red card stock and embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder behind the stamped oval with SNAIL, then I adhered the layered ovals to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored the sentiments from the Tiny Tags stamp set with my Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped them on Sahara Sand card stock, and punched them out with the Jewelry Tag Punch.  I also punched a flower from Rose Red card stock using my Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a 1/2″ circle from Wild Wasabi card stock.  I punched the center of all 4 pieces with the 1/16″ Circle Handheld Punch and placed a 3/16″ Subtles Brad (Rose Red) through the hole.  I adhered the layered punches to a Silver Basics Designer Button with a Glue Dot, then I adhered the button to the card front with a Glue Dot.  I also added 3 pearls to either side of the flower image and one small pearl to the hello sentiment.

To finish the card, I stamped the stem image again in Sahara Sand ink inside the card.

  2. So pretty, and truly springy! I love the little corner embellishment you created, and that two tone ribbon is one of my new favorites, it’s the best 🙂 The three little pearls are wonderful too, you have fabulous attention to detail. Thanks for playing with the sketch at HSS! Erika
