Petal Passion Sponge Dauber Technique

Petal Passion Sponge Dauber Technique

See how to color really really fast!  Today’s card shows the Petal Passion Sponge Dauber Technique, and WOW, sponge daubers make coloring super fast and easy!  The daubers also give you more control to get into smaller spaces by using the sides!  Just start lightly and deepen at certain points for a great look!

To create this simple card just stamp the bird, small flower cluster, and large flower cluster on a small piece of white card stock.  You can use sticky notes to hold down each framelit and run them all through at once!  The coloring is really easy.  After that it’s just a matter of layering your card stock.

Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Bubble Over Fun Background card

Bubble Over Fun Background card

Oh my goodness!  I love this Bubble Over Fun Background card!  Talk about a quick and simple Stampin’ Up! card idea!  No die cuts, no punches, just ink, paper, and a few pretty bling!  

Yes, I did cut my sentiment in half so I could make a long horizontal phrase 🙂  No worries though, i can still use it both ways and often a cut like this increases your versatility so much!  Don’t be afraid to experiment!

One quick tip for creating a background like this is to test your colors first to see if you need to stamp off and where that would look great.  Another thing I keep in mind is to stamp larger shapes in the lighter colors and smaller in the darkest.  This way you can get more of a layered look!

Lemon Zest Heat Emboss on Vellum

Lemon Zest Heat Emboss on Vellum

This Lemon Zest Heat Emboss on Vellum card was made with a fun and sassy stamp set!  So happy this is carrying over!  I love how you can add dimension to the leaves without a stamp, simply use a a foam mat and a bone folder to create a crease down the center!

No measuring was actually done on the sentiment, I winged it!  Stamping on white cardstock then cutting a rectangle (leaving extra space at the bottom to flag the ends.  Then I layered the white on the Garden green and trimmed around.

The video shows how I layered the lemon and leaves, and vellum together all into one piece, then I added dimensionals to the back of it all to pop it up!

Remember to decorate your envelope!
