Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today’s cards are made using the distINKtive stamp set, Heartfelt Blooms. You can get this set for FREE during Sale-A-Bration (through March 31, 2018) with a qualifying purchase.
Heartfelt Blooms is a beautiful, photographic bouquet in a gorgeous vintage look. A one-step stunner for all your projects! The new Distinktive stamp lays down the ink at different opacities, giving the finished image more depth. I love that there are 3 great sentiments for different occasions. Here’s a close up of the stamped image.
When I make a card I usually stamp more than one. I like to play around with different color combos, sentiments, etc. I chose Night of Navy with Bermuda Bay and Fresh Fig with Blushing Bride. I can’t wait to make more! I also played around with adding pearls or not. I like it both ways so I guess it depends whether or not you want to add the extra postage. This is such a clean & simple card and quick & easy to make! You can use it for many different occasions!
Here’s the measurements:
Card Base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.
Layer 1: 3 3/4 x 5
Whisper White Stamped Layer: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
I adhered the layered image to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love to stamp my envelopes to match. It really adds that extra special touch. Get in the habit of stamping your envelope when you stamp your card and it takes no time at all!
Check out this video for more information and ideas.
You can stamp in one color like I did or stamp in a neutral color and color in your favorite shades. Here’s another look at the samples from the video.
I wanted to use all 3 sentiments from this set so I made a sympathy card in Night of Navy and Crumb Cake with Gingham Ribbon.
Here’a another look at all three of my cards. Do you have a favorite? Pearls or not?
