Hello stampers crafters and friends I hope that you are having a wonderful Friday so far. I know that some are kicking off the weekend, and others are at work waiting for that five o’clock whistle to blow. I wanted to share with you this cute little card that I came up with featuring the Lots of Love Stamp set and some of the items from the suite in the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. Here’s a look at my card for today.
This bold and striking card is filled with fancy floral touches that will please anyone that opens it. The Lots of Love Stamp set comes in either our Clear mount or Wood Mount red rubber stamps that are created in the United States. The elegant greenery stamps would look grand in any variety of colors or class it up with touches of black and gold. When you pair them with the all-occasion sayings and you’ll be feeling the love even more. Which is what I hope that you are feeling when you are viewing this card.
The Card was created with a tone on tone background. I wanted the embossed piece to not take away form the bold message so I kept the Crushed Curry Cardstock as the next layer on the card. I simply ran a piece of Crushed Curry (4 x 5 1/4) through my Big Shot with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to get the deep impression. When you are using these embossing folders you only need one cutting pad on top of your platform. The Dynamic folders are much thicker then our regular embossing folders, so if you are having trouble running them through make sure you are only using one cutting pad on top. You will also want to spritz your paper with a little water before sending it through the Big Shot to give a deeper impression. The water allows the fibers of the paper to move a little more creating the deeper impression. Once this was done and dried I took some Crushed Curry Classic Ink and a sponge and lightly went over the embossed areas to create more depth in the card. The banners behind the oval were simple scrap pieces that I had left over after cutting my Designer Series Paper down to 4 x 5 1/4 pieces. I took them and punched the ends using my Banner Triple Punch and placed them behind the stamped image using a little snail to secure.
A Touch of Color:
As far as the stamped images goes, I simply stamped all my flowers and leaves using Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, and Tranquil Tide Classic Inks. Once the inks had dried I stamped the large Sending Lots of Love sentiment right on top with Basic Black Archival Ink. So my colors for this card are Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Tranquil Tide, and Basic Black.
I pulled all these colors from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper that is part of this suite. When you do this it makes creating a card so much easier because you know everything will go together and there will be no mistake. This is also a huge time saver! So if you find yourself in a bind and can’t come up with your color scheme pull from the Designer Series Paper its a win everytime.
