I used the Stampin’ Up! Amazing You and Eclectic Expressions stamp sets and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies to create a quick card to share with you today.
My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #260.
The Sale-a-bation items on my card were inspired by Global Design Project #GDP127.
I started by stamping the flower image from the Amazing You stamp set (Sale-a-bration item) in Smoky Slate ink on a panel of Wood Textures DSP. Then I inked the larger “paint swish” image from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set (Sale-a-bration item) in Flirty Flamingo ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped over half of the flower image. I repeated that process to stamp the other half of the flower. I inked the smaller swish image in Lemon Lime Twist ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it over the leaf area on the flower image. Then I stamped the small circular/dots image from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink over the flower center.
I stamped the “sparkle” image from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set in Sahara Sand ink randomly around the flower image. Then I used the die from the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (Sale-a-bration item) to cut panels of Flirty Flamingo and Berry Burst card stocks. I adhered the two die cuts together and then to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I carefully stamped the two sentiments from the Amazing You stamp set in Berry Burst ink above the die cut sentiment with the help of a Stamp-a-ma-jig.
I adhered the stamped DSP panel to a Lemon Lime Twist card stock panel with SNAIL and then to a Berry Burst card stock panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panels to a Flirty Flamingo card base with SNAIL, then added a Glitter Enamel Dot and two Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish the card front.
I stamped the flower image from the Amazing You stamp set and the images from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set in Smoky Slate, Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist Daffodil Delight and Sahara Sand inks on a Whisper White card stock panel inside the card.
