Ornate Thanks Card Tutorial

Sorry I didn’t get this posted as planned late yesterday, but with the announcement yesterday afternoon from our Governor and our son’s birthday I was feeling overwhelmed and needed a bit of time to process. I’m sure that you can relate. This morning brought a lovely new sunrise and a bright new day and so I’m back to share.

So here we go –

Today’s project is one that I made for my April Thank You cards using the Ornate Garden Suite Early Release Bundle of products that just went live yesterday. Filled with beautiful colors and floral images this card allows the Specialty Designer Series Paper to shine.

This stamp set is filled with not only a wonderful selection of sentiments it uses a lovely font also. The coordinating dies have some lovely borders that I can’t wait to play with too.

I’ve whipped up a quick video for you and a PDF with supply list so you can create this project too while were home.

It’s a Breathtaking Bouquet

This little background stamp (151612/152201) was one that I missed until a new friend at the table pointed it out to me – when I took a closer look at it I couldn’t believe I’d missed it.

I could see why she was excited since it looks great just as is, but when color is added to it. Wow!

Here are a few cards created with simple stamping using this bouquet of flowers. This first one is simply striking with it’s Pacific Point and Basic Gray combination and it shimmers since the large rose has been colored with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (141897).

If you don’t recognize it the bit of texture on the bottom was added with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder (151474) and that sentiment has been punch out using the Label Me Lovely Punch (151296) and matted on vellum.

This next card is done in Lovely Lipstick – simple but striking

And this final card – the stamped image is Embossed with Black Embossing Powder on our Shimmer White Card stock. Matted in Grapefruit Grove and Basic Gray – a quick swish of the Aqua Painted to add the Grapefruit Grove around the focal point and your done!

The Shimmery White Card stock (101910) adds just the right amount of shimmer and is wonderful for water coloring since it is a bit heavier. If you haven’t given our Shimmer White Card stock you really should give it a try – you’ll love it!

Beautiful Moments

This stamp set is filled with beautiful sketched images, sentiments using a lovely font and is perfect for your favorite coloring technique.

Today I wanted to share this lovely card I received that uses our Stampin’ Blends to color these lovely images.

Done using the Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. Texture was added with our Basket Weave and Texture 3D Embossing Folders. (Speaking of our wonderful 3D Embossing Folders – Did you know we have a special 3D Embossing Plate that you can use to make sandwich for embossing quick and easy when using your Big Shot or other Die machine? We also have replacement cutting plates available too.)

And here is another card I’ve shared with you earlier using this set. This time using bold Rich Razzleberry and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends inspired by the Poppies Designer Series Paper.

The options are endless since you can use the coloring method of your choice and each coloring tool you choose will give you a different feel which makes it a lot of fun to create with!

Are you at home? With the request that we stay in place, you’ll need a way to fight the boredom . Why not think about stamping? And of course staying connected with our family and friends by sending a card? Just because we have to be physically apart doesn’t mean we can’t reach out to others through different methods, like a phone call or sending a card. Not only will you brighten someones day, you’ll feel better too!

And of course I have class options that will allow you to still create while at home – check out my kit to go options found on my Calendar of Events or contact me today to learn more. Or my new Virtual Class option that I shared with you last week.

More Tropical Oasis

This Suite is one of my favorite in the Mini Catalog and here are some more cards made using the products from this suite for you today.

This first card is a fancy fold, called the 4 fold card.

When opened it’s like a little book – so much fun. Check out the beach chair from the Seasonal Layers Dies. Soooo cute!

And here is a fun card done with the In the Tropic Dies.

Can you see the texture on the pineapple? The Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper was used to cut out the die, giving it a lot of texture – so simple, but it packs a wow factor.

And this last card is perfect for a retirement, thank you, or special trip

Do you like these cards? How can this bright, cheerful suite of products not make you smile with their tropical feel? If you love this suite as much as I do, why not take a class with me that includes the Timeless Tropical Bundle and more?

This is a step I didn’t take lightly, but one I feel is important to help do my part to protect not only my family, but also my stamping friends too.

That being said, as we all practice sheltering in place in different ways across the US, I know that stamping can be a positive way to reduce stress during this stressful time. So I’ll be making some modifications to my classes and offering them in a different way! While I have been offering Kits to Go with my product based classes already, I’ll be introducing my Virtual Class option too.
