Hello crafty friends,
Today’s card is a quick and cute card that uses the floral image I cut out of the beautiful True Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) & the FREE Flower & Field DSP. You’ll find the card measurements after the Shopping List. Before I continue let me remind you that this is the LAST week of Sale-a-bration. If you want the versatile and beautiful Flower & Field DSP all you need to do is place a minimum $50 order before sales tax & shipping. This week is the perfect time to take inventory of your craft stash and see what you need to replenish. Are you running out of adhesive, cardstock and ink? What about a new stamp set? Honestly, that’s what I do. I stock up on cardstock, envelopes, Stampin Dimensionals, ink pad refills and before I know it my order has earned me several FREE Sale-a-bration items.
Here’s today’s card.
The True Love DSP is featured with a Valentine Set but the elegant black and white designs can be colored with your favorite coloring medium and can be used for all occasions and not just for Valentine’s Day. I used my ScanNCut machine to cut out the beautiful floral images from one of the sheets but you can easily fussy cut them out. They’re not that intricate. I then used my Stampin’ Blends to color the image. I’ve also used my Watercolor Pencils and even ink pads to add color to some of the flowers. The Herring Bone pattern comes from the back side of one of the Flower & Field DSP sheets. The Flower & Field DSP contains 12 sheets of double-sided designs on the paper. One side is printed with flowers and the back side has neutral designs like dots, leaves, stripes and herring bone. The sentiment on today’s card comes from the Dragon Garden stamp set.
TIPS & TRICKS:
For some quick card making cut out the floral images and some basic shapes such as circles, rectangles or square to add sentiments later as the need arises. Then, all you need to do is color in the image, or leave as is, add the appropriate sentiment and add a coordinating strip of DSP.
Customize your Pearl Basic Jewel embellishments by coloring them with your Stampin’ Blends. Color them while they’re still on the carrier sheet before you add them to your card.
Store you floral image cut outs in a clear envelope with your package of DSP or store them with a stamping set that has sentiments for all occasions, either system will work.
