Happy Valentine’s Day!!
I used the Painted Petals stamp set and the die cut rose card from the Artisan Embellishment Kit in the Stampin’ Up! 2015 Occasions Catalog to create my cards to share today. Mary Fish posted this card earlier this week and I loved the design, so I used several of the features from her card to create mine.
I liked the card so much that I actually made a set of 5 of these in different colors! You can see them all below.
The design for my card was loosely based on the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 255.
The roses were inspired by The Card Concept #28. I’d say that my card is clean and layered.
I started by embossing a strip of either Very Vanilla or Sahara Sand card stock (depending on my card colors) with the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a card base of the same color with SNAIL.
Then I placed the rose die cut sheet from the Artisan Embellishment Kit on either a Very Vanilla or Sahara Sand card stock panel and I sponged my color of choice over it with a Sponge Dauber. This was actually a really quick process and the die cut held up perfectly for all of the cards! I’ve set it aside as my “stencil” for future cards. 🙂 Once I had the sponging completed, I adhered the panel with SNAIL to a panel card stock that was the same color as the ink (Wisteria Wonder for this card).
I wrapped a strand of 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon in the same color as the ink (Early Espresso for this card) around the panel and tied a bow, then adhered the panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Petals stamp set on a panel of either Very Vanilla or Sahara Sand card stock in the same color of ink that I’d sponged the rose panel with, punched it out with the 1″ Circle Punch and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I punched a flower with the punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and adhered it to the sentiment circle with a rolled up Glue Dot, then added a Pearl Basic Jewel to the center to finish the card front.
I stamped the flower images from the Painted Petals stamp set in the same ink colors that I’d used on the front of the card on a Very Vanilla panel inside the card.
Here are the other three cards that I made that look just like it! I used Calypso Coral, Night of Navy and Pink Pirouette for this group of cards.
And one final share since it’s Valentine’s Day…I made a quick thank you card for some gifts that my daughter’s recently got. I used one of the Note Cards from the Note Cards & Envelopes pack and I adhered a 2-1/2″ x 4″ panel of Real Red card stock to it, then embossed a 2-3/8″ x 3-7/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder and I adhered it over the Real Red panel.
I stamped the heart from the Groovy Love stamp set in Real Red ink, then stamped the sentiment from the Hello Life photopolymer stamp set over it, punched it out with the Sweetheart Punch and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I loved the way that it turned out…and it took less than 5 minutes to make! Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
