Happy Monday, friends!
My card today features another Sale-a-bration set of products. You have ONLY two days to order this beautiful suite of products called Wonderful World. Below are pictures of the catalog pages…just look at that gorgeous paper.
I just love the Stampin’ Up catalogs because they are filled with great ideas for card-making. They help me think “outside the box”. But today my card is a “go-to” sketch for me; definitely an “inside the box” sketch.
We made this card in my Card Class. We usually have a time consuming card & then I add two more quicker cards. This is one of the fast cards & it’s card base is Flirty Flamingo.
We added a piece of DSP measuring 4 x 3 to the lower section of the card base. When you cut your DSP into 4×3 pieces, you get 12 pieces- plenty to make duplicates.
The flower was stamped onto a scalloped rectangle die cut from the Scalloped Contours dies using our Stamp-a-ratus. After centering the big floral image, we used a sponge dauber to pick up ink from the Flirty Flamingo ink pad & we tapped it onto the flower part of the stamp. Then we used Pear Pizzazz ink pad & dauber for the stem. Using the stamp-a-ratus, we could go back & re-ink any areas we missed. Next we inked the scalloped edges with the dauber.
If you hold the inked sponge dauber & paper exactly perpendicular to each other, you transfer just a little color to the edges.
From the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack we added a white bow to the stems.
Ta-da! A quick & beautiful card.
Have a great week! Happy Stamping, Marilyn (aka MJ)
