This is a card I made for a recent stamp-a-stack for a lovely lady who wanted to share stamping on her birthday – what a simply wonderful idea! Don’t you agree?
This is the other card that was inspired by one of my favourite cards here. I began with the colours Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and Certainly Celery. We used the Scallop Trim border punch with a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock, which was layered with another strip of Certainly Celery DSP (from the Subtles DSP Paper Stack). We stamped the sentiment from Bring on the Cake on the Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged the edges.
For the flowers, we used Silhouette Sentiments with the Blushing Bride and Certainly Celery marker pens. The background of the flower circle was stamped in Crumb Cake with a “stamped off” stamp from the retired SAB stamp set, Bliss. For the border around the flower circle, we punched the Fancy Flower punch with Crumb Cake and Certainly Celery cardstock. A row of paper piercing finished off the card.
I made this box as a hostess gift for a lovely new customer for the first workshop she hosted in her home.
I used the Fancy Favor Big XL die and cut out Crumb Cake cardstock using the Big Shot. Then I rolled Scribble in Whisper White craft ink along the bottom of the box.
Next I punched out Chocolate Chip cardstock with the Fancy Flower punch (currently not available at the date of blog post). Then I layered it with the ‘For You Flower’ which I had stamped in Real Red ink and coloured the “for you” with my Chocolate Chip marker pen. Then I punched it out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch and added a Rhinestone brad.
The last touch was to add the striped Riding Hood Red grosgrain ribbon (retired) and tie it together at the top with 1/4″ chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon (retired).
