I know that I've already shared lots of cards with the Artfully Layered stamp set, but I just had to share this card with you using the Kissing technique for card making and rubber stamping. I shared how to make this card at an online event. And, I have a free card making tutorial or project sheet for you below.
I had so much fun today participating in the Sale-A-Bration Stampathon on Facebook! It was great to spend another Saturday working with other demonstrators to share fabulous projects with all of you! There were 10 other demonstrators sharing projects today and boy oh, oh boy, were they all fantastic! So many fabulous ideas.
Make sure to watch the video to see exactly how I made the card. I started by inking the large leaf with Soft Succulent ink. Then, I inked up the text stamp with Evening Evergreen and stamped it onto the leaf stamp. Then, when I stamped the leaf stamp on my paper, it has the text on it as well.
The Layering Hugs stamp set from Stampin' Up!® is absolutely beautiful! I love the dies that coordinate with the stamp and I especially love the way you can die-cut the word HUGS to layering onto the stamped image. I have a few different handmade card ideas for you using this fabulous stamp set.
I'm also going to talk about coloring on vellum. If you'd like to see exactly how I made this card, be sure to watch the video. I shared lots up tips for using vellum on your handmade cards.
I also have a few "non-stamping" ideas for the coordinating Layering Hugs dies. I paired them with the Symbols of Fortune patterned paper. You're going to love them!
I have a fun card sketch for you today! I love card sketches because they make it so easy to create quick and easy cards, like this one with the Artfully Layered stamp set and Tropical Layer dies from Stampin' Up!® and of course, the Artfully Composed patterned paper! I absolutely love this paper with its bright leafy designs on one side and its subtle monochromatic designs on the other.
For this first sample, I left some pieces in the die-cut leaf. This gives the Calypso Coral a little more prominence on the card front. I added a few iridescent gems for a little sparkle.
I have a couple more samples and the sketch for you, so on y go! Let's get stamping.
While I love patterned paper and bright colors, sometimes, I like to make clean and simple cards - or CAS cards. They are just so calm and minimalist while still being beautiful!
My customer thank you cards for this month are a clean and simple card using the Artfully Layered stamp set and coordinating Tropical Layers dies from Stampin' Up!® I have the best customers! And I love spoiling them with a hand-stamped thank you card and a FREE set of tutorials each time they order.
This thank you card is also part of Kylie Bertucci's Demonstrator Training Hop. There are so many awesome thank you card ideas for you this month! Be sure to read all the way through my post and then find the list of designers at the very bottom.
