This card is just a few rectangular pieces of paper, one stamp, one color of ink, two short bits of ribbon, and some adhesive. The ribbon is made into loops and secured with Mini Glue Dots. The sentiment panel is raised on Stampin’ Dimensionals (which allows room for the ribbon to breathe). The colors are bright and suitable for nearly any occasion (except perhaps a sympathy card…I don’t think I would choose this design for that purpose.)
Pretty cards don’t have to be difficult! Have some fun with stamping. If you need supplies, check out the Happiness Blooms suite HERE.
I’m channeling my inner ND Mom (thankfully, the days of tuition payments are over) with the colors in today’s card. I’ve always loved the various combinations of blue and green, and these particular tones bring back fond memories. The Happiness Blooms DSP is a real winner!
There’s still time to join us tomorrow night to make cards! I’ll have all the supplies ready for you to make 6 fun cards using this great stamp set – just $15. There will be a variety of sentiments so that you can customize each card to your needs. Message me today!
The Happiness Blooms DSP has really inspired me. The images remind me of Marimekko, a Finnish design house that I’ve loved all my adult life. The colors are bright and the designs are cheerful, with options suitable for both men and women. It’s perfect for a suit of cards.
Stamps: Retired SAB from a few years ago (sorry!)
Color Palette: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Powder Pink, Call Me Clover
This card is included in my Happiness Blooms suite card class on Tuesday evening, February 5th. You’re welcome to join us – message me and I’ll fill you in on the details. But hurry, because the craft table is filling up!
I am head-over-heels in love with Bloom By Bloom, the new Occasions catalog stamp set with a definite mid-century modern aesthetic. It’s fresh, it’s versatile, and it has a gorgeous suite of complimentary products. Time for a class!
There’s a little bit of fussy cutting involved (c’mon, Stampin’ Up!, we could have used framelits on this one!) but it’s not very technical because the lines are clean. The Hexagon TIEF and the repeating irregular circles in the DSP work well together, and a sparkly rhinestone jewel is the finishing touch.
I’m offering a class focusing on this stamp set next Tuesday, February 5 at 6:30pm at my Maui home. We’ll make 6 (gorgeous) cards using simple supplies. Cost is $15 and includes all supplies except basic adhesive. Leave a comment or message me if you’re interested.
