Today I'm helping to introduce two new stamp sets - Garden Party and Ways to Say: Hello! They worked so perfectly together, that all three of my cards for today use both stamp sets. I've also used the matching dies for both sets. And, on my third card I used the awesome new Edgers Dies! I tried to shake it up and show you some different ways to use the sets, and some different color combinations, too. Thanks for visiting today!
First up is a super bright and colorful one layer stamped card. It was really fun to use vivid and happy colors to create floral clusters on a crisp white layer. My card base is the beautiful Bright Buttercup paper. The sentiments are in rich black for contrast.
I'm going to use this Hello stamp A LOT! I know it. It's the perfect size for cards and also for the front of envelopes. Sure to cheer up anyone! You can see that I added just a couple of pearls to the finished card for shimmer and shine.
I did just a tiny bit of masking on that big flower. The rest was freehand stamping. This would make a pretty tropical party invite! Aloha!
Next up, I went for a more muted color palette, some gingham, and a country feeling. I love a good kraft card base! I layered the PTI gingham paper onto my card base then cut a smaller white layer with a touch of Pure Poppy. I stamped the flowers into one big bouquet off to one side. I'm all about yellow right now...
The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and cut into a banner by hand. I layered it onto the card with foam tape.
And lastly, I used kraft again, but this time with white and Hawaiian Shores paper! Pow! Look at that pretty Hello die! So fun. Here is one of the new Edgers Dies in action too. I stamped and die cut a few of the flowers and leaves and made an accent in the V created by the edger die.
I used PTI Snow White Ink on kraft paper for the flowers and leaves.
That's it for me today! Remember, everything new is for sale on the 15th at 10pm EST. I'll be back on Friday with more (much more) inspiration from the new release. Until then, have a great week. Thanks for stopping by!
