Happy Friday! Today I’d like to share a couple of cards that I made for the current Catered Crop Recipe Swap. This week’s theme is “So Shapely” which asks us to use die cuts or punches to create our projects. So I pulled out my Mini Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies which I’m really into at the moment.
Here is my first card. I started with a Simply Chartreuse card base from the Perfect Match Cardstock Sampler. I stamped a text block from Background Basic: Text Style II on the bottom of my card. Then I wrapped a ribbon around the card front. After that, I created my die-cuts using a Cuttlebug cutting machine and stamped the images onto them. Next, I arranged my images using foam tape and put on some pearls for an extra accent. To finish off my card, I stamped a simple sentiment from the Mini Blooms stamp set using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
For my second card, I opted to leave a lot white space to highlight my focal image. I started by die-cutting flowers and leaves out from solid card stock. Then I stamped each die-cut with a watermark ink pad to give a tone-on-tone effect. Next, I stamped the sentiment in black and placed clusters of my images around the sentiment.
That’s all for today. For more inspiration and all the details, please check out the Catered Crop blog and mark your calendar for the Design Teams Quickfire on Sunday.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy creating!
