Look for more projects coming from me using this stamp set, paired with others, as it is such a versatile set. I only used 2 card colors tonight, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch, both In-Colors that will be retiring this June. So stock up now if you need them and love them like me.
For the beginner card I simply stamped the Thank you Sentiment in Lovely Lipstick all over the whisper white layer, and added in the small heart in Pineapple Punch to fill it in. I layered that on Pineapple Punch and adhered to the Lovely Lipstick card base.
For the casual card, I stamped the large heart image in Lovely Lipstick, and then took the single watercolor image and stamped it in Pineapple Punch all the way up the heart without re-inking for the Ombre affect. I added a piece of Black Satin Ribbon and punched the Thank you sentiment using a 1 1/2" circle punch. I added a few Basic Rhinestones for some bling as well.
For the avid crafter card, I decided to do a watercolor wash so I used the glimmer whisper white cardstock for this as it handles the water a bit better. I used Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick starting with Pineapple punch and going back if need be. I then used the small solid heart in each color and added a few of each color. For the big heart, I used Vellum cardstock, and heat embossed with the black glitter embossing powder and fussy cut it. For the sentiment, I used the Stitched Nested Label dies on the glimmer cardstock and heat embossed that as well and colored the heart with the Dark Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blend, as well as the basic rhinestones for bling. I again used the satin ribbon to tie a knot around both layers.
All the insides of the cards are the same and simply three of the small hearts in the same ink colors or cardstock used.
Here are the measurements of the cards:
1. Lovely Lipstick card base cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" for all 3 cards.
2. Pineapple Punch layer is 4" x 5 1/4" for all three cards.
3. Whisper White is 3 3/4" x 5" on all 3 cards (avid is glimmer).
4. Whisper white inside is 4" x 5 1/4" on all 3 cards.
5. About 4 1/2" ribbon for casual card, about 14" for avid card.
6. A soap of whisper white for casual card, a scrap of glimmer white for avid card, and vellum for big heart for avid card.
I hop you enjoyed these cards, and I look forward to seeing you again next week for another Saturday Night Spotlight.
