Alright people, we are at T-minus 2 DAYS of Sale-a-Bration! Did you get your order in? If not, let me share with you some more ideas from another of one of the free Sale-a-Bration items you could choose before the month is out!
Today I’m featuring the Botanicals For You stamp set
The name makes you think it is all about flowers, but it is because it matches some of the Botanicals Suite products in the Occasions Catalog. I just love the big “Just For You” and so created a couple cards with it that I just love:
Fun with Color – Botanicals For You Card
This was one of the cards we did in Stamp Club this month
This was a fun card to pull together. I used a bunch of my favorite products… but even more fun was playing with color! I used the 2015-2017 In Colors to pull together my card. The big letters on the Just for You is perfect for coloring with your markers. So I used Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, and Delightful Dijon as my focus colors here. Don’t they look awesome together?
Then I used the fun follow on sentiment and created a banner to go along the bottom of the card… because, really, people need to hear they are awesome more often don’t you think?
I stamped the flower in Watermelon Wonder and cut it out and it is hard to see, but used some of the Gold Wink of Stella in the middle for a little bit of shine and color.
And what are we thinking of the Brick Wall embossing folder as the background? I used it for texture along the back of the card… I kind of like it in Mint! Then add a hint of the Watermelon Wonder satin ribbon… seriously the BEST ribbon in the Occasions Catalog!
And don’t forget the finishing touch of the Mint Macaron/Black Baker’s Twine from the combo pack! Tie it in the crease of your card for the just right final touch!
Keep it Simple – Emboss Resist Botanicals For You
Now, if you want to keep it really simple, I have one more option for you…. this sweet and simple emboss resist card.
All you have to do is stamp your sentiment in Versamark and then heat emboss with white embossing powder.
Sponge your favorite color over the top with the yellow Stampin’ Sponges and and the color won’t stick to your words but will make them really POP!
Layer on coordinating cardstock and then pop up on Stampin’ Dimensionals over your favorite ribbon and/or twine… love that gold baker’s twine! And you are done!
