I have a video for you today using the Flourish Filigree Stamp Set and the Pretty Label Punch.
I loved how Judy May placed a little bit of ribbon off the bottom of the tag on one of her cards.
I was inspired to do the same, doesn’t it add so much to the card?
Below is the Real Red/Silver version in landscape position but with the stamp in the same place on the Stamparatus.
I made up a few different versions but only had to get the stamp placement done once on the Stamparatus!
Here is the Thank You card I did for my mother-in-law’s passing last month.
Measurements for all three cards:
Card Base for the Red and the Elegant Eggplant 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on 8-1/2″ side and the Card Base for the Black/Gold 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″
The next layer in from the card base is 4″ x 5-1/4″(gold/silver/eggplant)
The stamped panel is 3-1/2″ x 5″
Today is my mom’s birthday, and the image on this card is so fitting.
We had a milk can my mom refurbished way back when I was a kiddo.
It sat in a corner of the kitchen, and it was the “extra” chair pulled up when we needed it.
I sent my mom her birthday card over the weekend, and then made this card on Monday.
Now, I wish I had made this into her birthday card! She would have gotten a kick out of it:)
I used the new Tin Tile Embossing Folder for the Smoky Slate background panel.
I then sponged it lightly with Basic Gray ink.
I used the my Stampin’ Blends- Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Crumb Cake.
Of gosh, I missed two little green leaves on the image…will have to fix that!
Of course, I ran the image through the Subtle Embossing Folder- my favorite technique!
It’s just the perfect way to add a little something to finish off a card.
I even did something on the inside- ask my girls, I always forget to finish off the inside on class cards…lol.
I love how Navy and Peach work together.
It was so funny how my friend, Jodi posted this watercolor piece yesterday
when I had just finished up my post for this card:)
This simple card packs a lot of texture.
The Subtle Embossing Folder used on the Grapefruit Grove strip creates the first layer of texture.
Well, actually, the Navy border is the first layer, huh?
Next, the ribbon not only adds texture but also pattern because of the gingham design.
Next up is the Basket Weave embossed Darling Labels.
And, of course, where would it be without Stampin’ Dimensionals?!?
(affectionately known as those pop up thingys)
