Hello Everyone! We thought we’d share the three cards we made today in our monthly TGIF Make’n'Take. We used one very basic sketch to demonstrate how you can get three different looks simply by using a small variety of stamps.
Our new lunch-time make’n'takes will always be designed with the Clean & Simple philosophy in mind. Using a sketch you can easily create three cards in less than 60 minutes. You’ll have to sign up to see for yourself, but by using this blueprint and allotting 20 minutes per card, you can achieve amazing results! Here are the three cards we made today:
We used our AccuCut Die of the Week: Butterfly #8 to cut out and layer six double-sided butterflies with the Authentique Freebird 6×6 papers. The ivory card base was stamped with the Hero Arts Zig Zag background stamp in Antique Linen Distress Ink, and the birthday sentiment is from Memory Box.
The Kraft card showcases the Hero Arts Dandelion, stamp of the week in our One Little Stamp feature. The panel was stamped with the new Hero Arts Newsprint background stamp in Rich Cocoa Memento ink, then the Dandelion image was stamped over the top with VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder. A simple sentiment was added with a circle punch.
Don’t you love the Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick distress inks on that poppy Hello card? The panel started out ivory with white embossing, and ended up a lovely blend of pale orange and brick. We used the Hero Arts Delicate Blossoms stamp and one of their Hello sentiments.
If you are inspired by any of these cards, we’d love to see any of your creations pop up in the Paperie Community on Facebook, or link to your blog if you have one! With a new greeting, any of these cards would be good for a variety of occasions. To try something different, take the sketch and rotate it 90 degrees to get a whole new look for your card.
