One Stamp Set, Six Note Cards

Hi everyone and Happy New Year! I’m up on the Pinkfresh blog today with a notecard set I’ve wanted to make since I first saw the You’re the Best stampstencil, and die design! Three flowers on one stamp, each perfectly sized for a square 3 1/4 X 3 1/4 inch card! And even better, I can then ribbon them up and gift them to someone so that they can mail them out!

I started with a heavy white cardstock in my stamping platform and the You’re the Best stamp. I stamped the flowers using light gray ink, Rocky Slope because I just needed to see where to position the stencil and left the stamp in the platform. I used the accompanying stencil with blender brushes to color the blooms in with Soft LilacLavender, and Candy Violet. The “greenery” was colored in using Ocean BreezeAquamarine, and Grassy Knoll. Then a gorgeous red Berrylicious was brought in for the smaller blooms. I love red and purple together!

The colored in cardstock was put back into the stamping platform and I stamped over the image with Detail Black to better see the detail. I did this whole process once more making the flowers different colors: Oranges (Indian Summer ink cube collection), a combination of purple and red (Soul of Provence and Heartbeat) for another, and Yellows (Rise and Shine) for the third. Once again I stamped over it all with Detail Black then die cut out all six of the flowers with the accompanying die.

I did a little ink blending and splattering with Pinkfresh inks for backgrounds for some of the blooms and used the Stitched Scallop Square die set for a border element to arrange the flowers on. The colorful flowers also got a little bit of sparkle from glitter gel, because I love to use stencils for that purpose!

For a pretty background for the lavender blooms, I die cut a couple of panels using the Floral & Diamond Tiles coverplate die on white cardstock. I used the Stitched Scallop Circle die set to border the cut-out circles and popped them up on the card with foam tape. I love that lattice-like effect! So darling.

I got everything arranged on 3 1/4 X 3 1/4 card bases. I used the Perfect Sentiments hot foil plate and die with Lavender Petal foil for sentiments for my lavender blooms and left the other three note cards with no sentiment. I used both Jewels and Clear Drops for bling and was done!

I’ll admit that I don’t know what a traditional size is for note cards, (I could have googled it) or even if there is one, but I do know that when you are the artist, you can pretty much do as you like!

I hope some of these design choices have inspired you to make something new today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
