I thought it would be fun to create entirely stamped card front panels with the Hello Darling 6"x8" stamp set included in the April Kit. While I had the stamps in my MISTI and the supplies and inks all out I went ahead and stamped two card backgrounds at once, just switching out the sentiments. You could even create more and make an entire set of thank you or gift cards! After all the stamping was done I added detail and dimension to the stamped areas with Polychromos colored pencils!
I started the backgrounds by stamping the sentiments from the Hello Darling Stamp Set on Ivory Cardstock and then added the lines above and below the sentiments, then the flower pots, stems, flowers, and finally the hearts. Below is a list of the Simon Says Stamp ink colors I used for each part of the design:
- Sentiments were stamped in Black.
- Line Borders were stamped in Seafoam.
- Larger Flower Pot was stamped in Winter Sky.
- Small Flower Post was stamped in Caribbean Blue.
- Stems and Leaves were stamped in Catkin.
- Pink Flowers were stamped with Twirling Tutu, Rosie Cheeks, and Hollyhock.
- Yellow Flower was stamped with Duckling.
- Orange Flower was stamped with Sunkist.
- Hearts were stamped with Rose Apple.
The backgrounds were die cut with a Basics Rectangles die to perfectly center the panel. A larger A2 background (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") was die cut from patterned papers in the kit using another Basics Rectangles die. The stamped panel was secured to the gingham panel and then adhered to a white top fold card base to complete the design.
With the exception of the inks, colored pencils, and dies everything for these cards came from the April Kit! I used the Hello Darling Stamp Set, Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse patterned papers, Ivory Cardstock, Metallic Sea Envelope, and Metallic Ivory Envelope. Thank you so much for joining me today!
