I love the simple layout of this card created with the Bloomin’ Marvelous and Mixed Bunch stamp set. I love it so much that I’m excited to have you play along! Announcing the FIRST EVER StampingJulie CAS challenge linky party (SJCAS001)! To enter go to the bottom of this post for details and linking instruction. And have fun!!
Here’s the sketch. I purposely did not give you dimensions because I’d prefer you customize your dimensions and have fun with it. I love sketches because it makes creating soooo much easier if you already have a design in mind. It’s kind of the ‘complete pancake mix’ of crafting! Instead of ‘just add water’, ‘just add paper’!! Sometimes I like to just pick up a scrap on my craft table and make it work. I think some of my best work has started that way.
Here’s a close up. I stamped the background flowers from Bloomin’ Marvelous with versamark on the Basic Gray cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in Black StazOn over that. To finish the button, because I don’t like buttons without a finish, I added a rhinestone to the top. A super easy solution to naked buttons!!
And here’s another variation. I used the same More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper (not just for Valentine’s Day) and the same Primrose Petals stamped and punched flower, then changed up the background paper, the ribbon and used butterflies.
Can you see that I heat embossed the butterflies on the background? I also stamped and punched a scallop circle to layer under the button.Here’s the card recipe: FREE exclusive Sale-a-bration items with qualifying order: Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set & Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (SAB supplies are free with a $50 product purchase.
