Today over at Stylin Stampin’ Inkspiration, the girls are sharing Quick and Easy cards. Now, you know me… I LOVE quick and easy stuff – it is my go to style for cards. Well, most of the time anyway. So, I thought this card would be a perfect contribution to the theme:
I had the chance to play with the new I Like You hostess stamp set because my mom recently earned it. ~ side note, it is SO awesome when you have a nearby family member who loves crafting as much as you and gets different stamps and dies as you! ~
Anyway, I thought this set would be perfect for using with Blendabilities (don’t forget, they come out TOMORROW!!!) I not only used them to color in my flowers, but I also used them to color in my pearls. Yup, that is right, double duty!
You can color:
- Clear Buttons
Just to name a few. All you have to do is pick your favorite colors and go at it. In this case, I used the medium and light Daffodil Delight Blendabilities markers.
And just to add some depth, I cut out one of the set of flowers and popped it up on dimensionals. I promise, it is still quick… and easy. The nice thing with the white paper base and for the raised image, you can be imprecise with your cutting and no one will notice!
Finally, I had made a promise to myself that this year I’m going to use more designer paper. I love it all and end up hoarding it so that at the transition of catalogs, I have a TON left over and of course want all the new stuff. So, I’m working to use what I have and enjoy it!
In this case I used the Moonlight Designer Series Paper stack and then added some texture by using the new Daffodil Delight cotton ribbon. It is so soft and flexible to work with.
