Today I’d like to share a card I made for a swap between Stampin’Up! Demonstrators. We were supposed to use only Sale-a-Bration items, and I tried to stretch my stamps to get something different. I liked it, but it was too much time-consuming because of the little hearts background (I made it just before Christmas) to make it multiple times for the swap!
So I went with another design, much quicker, that I’ll share later. I used the same stamp set as in this card : Eurêka.
I started to stamp the sentiment in Tempting Turquoise but I masked off the “Merci” part with a little sticky note, in order to stamp it again later in Blackberry Bliss. With the Stamp-a-ma-jig this is very easy. I hand-cut the tag but you can get the coordinating punch to make it in a breeze 🙂
For the background I used the tiny heart chain that comes in the set. I carefully draw lines with my pencil before on the Whisper White cardstock, and again used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure I would stamp them all lined up. Then I die-cut the cardstock with one of the banner framelit die. I die-cut a bigger framelit banner in vellum and added faux-stitching with my gel pen. I kept the base of the card pretty simple as I thought the banners were already quite busy. The heart banner was stuck on the vellum using snail adhesive and that allowed me to see where I could hide my adhesive for the vellum, as I didn’t want it to show through. The sentiment has been popped-up with foam adhesive, et voilà 🙂
