Happy April!

Today’s post features a “stamps, paper and ink” card. For fun, I added some pretty Designer Series Paper. This is a fun card design and very easy to put together. I’ve used it before with a completely different set of elements. You can too!

Today’s Card Parts & Pieces

  • Cut a standard A-2 Basic White card base cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. Score at 4 1/4″.
  • The Basic Black layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.
  • The patterned paper layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • The Basic Black center layer is 4 1/8″ x 2 7/8″.
  • The Basic White top layer is slightly smaller. It’s 4″ x 2 3/4″.
  • I used the Color & Contour stamp set for all the stamped images.
  • The flower is die cut with a matching die from the Scalloped Contours Dies.
  • Tuxedo Black Memento, Calypso Coral and Granny Apple Green ink are my color choices.
  • I stamped the leaf and ink splatter before I attached the flower.
  • I shade the center of the flower with a Light So Saffron Blend.

A Few Design Tips

  • If you cut the bottom offset layer slightly larger than the top, you’ll be able to angle your layers more evenly. It works!
  • Using a dark, thin layer under the patterned paper layer gives the patterned paper some dimension.
  • I added a Calypso Coral resin dot under the sentiment. Adding a little Calypso Coral to the top corner of the focal point layer gives the design color balance. It’s more appealing to the eye.

So, ink up a favorite stamp, add a few offset layers and a colorful resin dot and create something amazing!

… the only limitation is your imagination!
