Happy Saturday! It has been a while since I uploaded a Saturday Stamp Day video so I thought I’d make it up to you by sharing three fun cards in this week’s video.
In total, I made three cards using the same stamped design. I highly recommend using the MISTI tool by My Sweet Petunia when creating multiple cards using the same design. This tool makes it easier to mass produce cards. Think about all of those quick birthday or Christmas cards you could create!
As you already know, I’m crazy about pastel colors. I like to use these colors for all of the cards I make so of course Christmas cards are no exception! For the soft blue bows, I used Soft Pool ink from Hero Arts first. For the second layer of the bows, I used Lake Shores ink from Simon Says Stamp. I love how dimensional the bows look even though this is just one stamped layer! Impressive! I heard that some people have trouble lining up the second layer of these bows. To be honest, it took me a while to line up the second layer. However, I found that rotating the second layer until it “fits” is the best method. If you’re not sure about how it’s going to end up, simply stamp the bows on some scrap paper. You can also check out the layering guide of these bows over HERE. For the pink bows, I used Twirling Tutu ink from SSS along with Soft Pink ink from Hero Arts.
Finally, I created a purple notecard using Thistle ink from SSS along with Soft Purple ink from Hero Arts. Since this is a holiday card, I felt like this needed some extra sparkle and shimmer. I added some sparkle to the bows using the Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. This adds the perfect amount of shimmer to your projects! Since I am a sequin addict, I adhered matching sequins from The Ton. If you’re going to be making a ton (teehee, see what I did there?) of these cards, you could keep it simple by just adhering the round sequins.
That’s it for now! Thanks so much for your sweet comments! xo
