Yesterday I shared the first card from my recent workshop showcasing the Happiness Blooms Suite and today I’m going to share a card using the Incredible Like You stamp set (page 21 of the Occasions Catalogue). This set coordinates with the Incredible Like You Project Kit. You can see my samples from this kit here.
This is a two-step stamp which means the images are made up of two separate stamps. I CASED my design from page 27 of the Occasion Catalogue. Don’t forget to use the catalogues for your inspiration.
The card base is the same as yesterday’s card – 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″. The flowers have been stamped in Daffodil Delight on a scrap of Whisper White then fussy cut out. The rest of the card is straight stamping onto the card base. The ‘greenery’ has been stamped in Granny Apple Green, the flower stems in Early Espresso and the flowers in Lovely Lipstick. The background ‘dots’ are stamped in Crumb Cake.
To create the framed sentiment nest two of the Stitched Rectangle dies on top of a piece of Lovely Lipstick and run it through the Big Shot. This creates the frame. Stamp the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick – this is one of the greetings from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set – on a piece of Whisper White and die cut with the smallest die used to create your frame. I wanted to adhere my sentiment with dimensionals but as it was in two parts I cut out a piece of Whisper White (3cm x 8cm) for a base and adhered the two pieces to it before adhering to the card.
The Braided Line Thread (16cm) was attached at the back of the base and then the cut out flowers were positioned on top of the stamping and finally the sentiment was attached.
I like to have a couple of samples so everyone can see what they’re creating so I decided to make my second sample a full sized card to show how you can upsize (or downsize) a design to fit your desired card base.
My additional frame was die cut using the second and third largest frames from the Stitched Rectangle Framelits. I think these dies are now my favourite and most used dies.
I also changed the small flower stamp for this card so they could see the two options.
If you would like to order any of the products from these cards or anything else please let me know – I’ll be placing my final order for March tomorrow night.
Until next time …
