Today over on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration blog, we are sharing some quick and easy cards for you. So, I thought I’d share one of the cards I created for my Stamp Club this fall.
I kept it quick to go together thanks to my handy Big Shot and the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, so that we could focus on playing with the Blendabilities!
Tips for making this card
- By using an embossing folder for your contrasting color of paper, it keeps your simple card interesting to look at without overwhelming the stamped image.
- Dimensions for this card:
Hello Honey cardstock – 8.5” x 5.5” folded in half
Lost Lagoon cardstock – 5.5” x 1.75”, which is just right for two rows of the large polka dots on the Large Polka Dot Embossing folder
Whisper White cardstock – 4.25” x 2”
- Cut a piece of the Mossy Meadow ribbon and hold it in place by stapling it to the top of the tag
- The flower images from the Bloom with Hope hostess stamp set are perfect for coloring with Blendabilities. In this case, we use the Night of Navy trio! Who knew the dark sounding color could be so light and pretty when you stick with the lightest color marker for most of your image?!
Just a small amount of stamping, a little embossing, and a little coloring and you have a pretty card that is perfect for any occasion.
Just a reminder, we are on week 3 of Gratitude Month and the special thank you gift this week is a bonus punch on your Northwest Stamper rewards card! Get to your free stamp set even faster this week when you shop online & use hostess code UCJDBQH4.
Finally, next week will be the kick off for the Holiday Shopping Sale! I’ll be getting details soon, but I know you’ll have the special Gratitude Month week 4 gift from me PLUS all the great deals from Stampin’ Up! If you want to be one of the first to hear about the details, make sure you are on my mailing list as I’ll be sending out the details once I have them so you are ready to go.
