Today I am sharing one of the cards which my team will be making at our Team Training session today. It was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest designed by one of my German demonstrator colleagues Cornelia Janssen. I loved the simplicity of her card. I have to admit I completely missed the Happiest of Days stamp set when I looked through the catalogue; luckily one of my lovely ladies (thank you Ola) ordered it……..as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. I love the unfussy images which are great for colouring.
For my version I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock 5⅜” by 3⅝” and stamped randomly all over it using the cake image and Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Using my Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay ink pads and a Blender Pen I coloured in part of each cake, concentrating the colour on the right hand side of each image. I love these 2 colours together; they look so fresh and summery.
I mounted the whole stamped panel onto a layer of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock 5½” by 3¾” using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I liked the look but felt the panel still needed something extra. So, I took a scrap of Night of Navy cardstock approx. 6” by ¾”and punched it using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. I added it to the left side of the panel with the small scallop edge showing and trimmed off the excess with my Scissors. I really felt the Night of Navy grounded the panel. I love that we have a couple of new border punches in the new catalogue.
Carrying on with the Night of Navy I took another scrap of cardstock, wiped it over with my Embossing Buddy before stamping the sentiment using Versamark ink. I covered the ink with White Embossing Powder and melted it using the Heat Tool. I trimmed the piece down and flagged the end using the Banner Triple Punch before adding the piece to the front of the stamped panel.
The whole piece was then added to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love it, love the simplicity, the colours and summery feel of this card. Hope you like it.
