Hey Stampers !
I am trying to fit in a couple more awesome SAB projects before its all over on Friday !! Todays card is SO quick to make, but the stamps itself are so beautiful, it still packs an pretty punch !! The stamp set I used is the Feeling Sentimental set, which I just LOVE. I also used one of my favorite color combos of Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse and Soft Suede. LOVE this rich color palate, don't you ?? Take a look !!
Isn't that quick and easy ?? And it would be great for a masculine birthday card. First I stamped the beautiful ferris wheel image in Midnight Muse ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock. I then ripped all around the edges for a distressed look, and then sponged the piece with both Summer Starfruit ink and Soft Suede ink. Love how the Summer Starfruit makes the paper looked really aged. I then cut a banner in some DSP from the Comfort Cafe pack. This simple Very Vanilla and Summer Starfruit pattern can read either masculine or feminine, so it makes the card really versatile. I then layered the banner onto a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock, for a bit more dimension and color. All of those pieces were sponged with Soft Suede ink as well. My card base is a piece of Soft Suede, measuring 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and folded in half. I sponged it with Soft Suede ink and stamped my sentiment in the corner with Midnight Muse ink. I love how crisp the Midnight Muse looks against the Soft Suede !! I tested the stamp on a scrap first, and was SO pleased with how well the color shows up on the dark cardstock !! My final touch for a bit of semi-bling is a Gold Brad from the Metallics Collection. I don't use Gold very often, but it added the perfect look for this card I think !! Love it !!
Well, thats my quick card for today !! If you love this stamp set (like I do) make sure to get it before its gone !! Friday is the very last day for Saleabration 2013, so get your $60 order in now !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
