I did my best to create a simple card, using one stamp set and just the Big Boss and some dies. It’s not an absolute beginner card, but it’s an easy one to re-create. I’d love it if you gave it a go:
- Stamps: Hand-Penned Petals
- Color Palette: Basic White, Memento Black, Pear Pizazz, BumbleBee
- Accessories: Big Boss, Stitched Rectangle dies, Penned Flowers dies, Stampin Dimensionals
My technique was VERY simple. I stamped the focal point with Memento Black ink on a piece of Basic White and stamped the flowers and petals each twice without re-inking (that’s what creates that lighter color layer particularly visible on the flowers). Then I inked the focal point in Pear Pizazz and lightly stamped it off on a scrap, then stamped it onto my Basic White Stitched Rectangle (that technique is called stamping off). I repeated that process until my background was sufficiently filled, stamped the sentiment right on top of it with Memento Black, and positioned the focal point with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Sooo…about the inside. It’s a special double panel inside. It didn’t start out that way, but when I opened the card to add the panel, I placed it on my craft table upside down, so the panel was on the wrong side. I tried to lift it, but oh no, I did a good job of pressing my Stampin’ Seal in place and it wasn’t going ANYWHERE. So I made this a double panel card.
Tell me you’ve never done that.
The Hand-Penned bundle is a great beginner set. The images can be hand colored, or stamped with our Two Step Stampin’ process to be quick and easy. Shop for it HERE.
