Because of the number of cards I had to do I ve decided to keep things simple as you can see altho it looks quite simple it is not as there s quite a few layers and detail. I ve used lovely textured blanks made form PaperMill cardstock, SU very vanilla and so saffron was used for the layers and long tags, I ve embossed the vanilla layer with the CB swiss dots folder and every time I use one I thank God they exist, love them. Now for my focal image I ve used the heart from the *Simply Said* set from Stampin Up this is such a versatile set I must have used it so far for all occassions going( I m getting my moneys worth lol), I ve stamped and embossed the heart in gold then I ve coloured the flowers with my SU markers ( I ve used Barely Banana and a touch of So Saffron) , I ve punched the heart out with the 1 3/8 circle punch and layered it onto a scaloped layer a trail of glitter adds some sparkle. The long tags were cut with my Expression form the tags bags and boxes cart, and the sentiment is SU from the * Ocassional Greeting* set, all this is topped off with some wide grosgrain ribbon ( my most favorite) in Very Vanilla.
The next card is my Get Well Soon card, and I ve choosen a pink and green combo definately a nice fresh bright combination, just what you ll need to brighten someones day if they re under the wheather.
I ve used the gorgeous paisley background stamp as I just love the effect and you get instant result and fast, I ve used a Pretty in Pink base stamped with Pixie Pink , a green scalloped border was cut on the expression from the Accent Essential cart, the white layer was stamped using a cute little stamp from the Shapes and Shadows set from SU with certainly celery ink , and the sentiment from the Sincere Salutations set, was stamped in Pixie Pink ink. The floral embelisment was made by first stampin into the versamark pad and then into the pixie pink ink, heat and stick powder was poured all over the image heated and then glitter was sprinkled all over, heat again and you end up with a shimery image that is quite textured and best of all theres no shedding of the glitter. Added more texture with some trim that i ve bought from one of my trips to Romania and a crystal brad for extra sparkle.
Last one for today is my male entry and of course I just had to use my beer mug from the *cheers to you* set from SU.
Chocolate chip card base embossed with the CB distressed stripes folder, More mustard cardstock and some dotty paper from PM for the layers, the mug was coloured using the markers and then diamond glaze applied over the image. I ve used my stamp a ma jig to stamp the sentiment in a continuos line as it didnt work for my layout the way it is placed.
I m not sure if you d realised by now but I ve used the same layout for all those cards and I just wanted to show you that if you sell your cards and you need large numbers this is an easy way of doing them so you dont spend hours devising layouts. I will hopefully see you again in a couple of days with some more projects till then hugs ans stamping kisses. See ya!!!
