I have a couple more Valentine's cards filled with love for you ... since it is Valentine's week.. right? Well, I am IN LOVE with the beautiful flower stencil piece found in the Stampin' Up! Artisan Embellishment kit!!!
Read on for more details about creating this flower background with the stencil:
Can you go wrong with Black, White and Red?
I think not.
LOVE CARD on left: The cute images are from the Snuggles and Smooches stamp set. Do you recognize them from yesterday's blog post? And the tiny love heart is a FREE CHOICE stamp set during Sale a Bration (from the You Brighten my Day set).
LOVE CARD on right: this sentiment is from the Build a Bouquet set
So you're wondering how I created that beautiful floral background, right?
Grab one of the stencils in your Artisan Embellishment kit (pg 27 Occasions catalog or HERE online) and a sponge dauber, and apply ink onto your cardstock! Alternating between light and dark really gives this interesting dimension.
I used Rose Red ink and my Sponge Dauber for these samples.
I'm just tickled over how well these products coordinate... I LOVE it when a stamp matches a punch.. and then when you find an embellishment created just for the image.. wow!! TOO FUN!! Itty Bitty Accents punch and Epoxy Stickers are the bomb!
I was looking for a sentiment with "love" in it, and I came across this one in the Build a Bouquet stamp set.. it's on pg 29 in the Occasions catalog, or here in my online store. I think it just fits this tag perfectly, and I loved the scripty font and the message!
I cut a 2" wide strip of Whisper White cardstock and punched the top with my Ornate Tag Topper Punch, stamped the sentiment with Rose Red ink, then added 2 pieces of Stacked with Love Washi Tape. I tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and Sahara Sand Lace trim on the top of the tag.
The tiny hearts paper is from the Stacked with Love paper stack - limited time only and it's the best seller in the Occasions catalog!! Find it on pg 5.
As you can see, the Artisan Embellishment kit comes with LOTS of goodies in it.. I'll have a video showing more of the contents of this kit on Friday, Feb. 20th, so please check back then for more info and ideas!
Stamp Tip! Remember.. always stamp first, then use your punch "upsidedown" to center it over your stamped image, then punch!
