Yesterday I did a Facebook Live on my I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page. I created three cards featuring the beautiful New Horizons Suite of products! Such beautiful products!!! I started with a very simple card – basically just showcasing the Horizons Designer Series Paper – I created a frame with the Stitched Rectangles Dies to really just highlight the paper. Very simple but I think we all need simple at times – and with paper this beautiful, you don’t need to add much more – a word, some Genial Gems and done!
You can see how I created all three cards by watching my Facebook Live video below.
The next card I made was also simple – I used a Basic White Note Card/Envelope. I knew I wanted to use the “scene” of the Designer Series Paper as the focal point – and cut that to 3 x 4 3/4. I looked through the pack of DSP and found a coordinating color and used it to cover the front of the card – 3 1/2 x 5. I stamped the birds with Black Memento ink and popped up the center panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The words were stamped on a small Stitched Rectangle Die with Evening Evergreen Ink. Again – pretty simple but it works! This card could easily be stepped up with some gems and/or twine. I liked the simplicity of it so kept it as is!
The third card I made was a Tent Card – and is a stepped up card. It was really fun to create the little beach scene on the circle. This card measures 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 – and will fit in a regular size envelope. It’s fun to switch things up a bit from the traditional card with something like this!
The circle was cropped from the Designer Series Paper – I used a blending brush with Daffodil Ink to add a bit of a sunrise – l love that the paper makes it look like rays spreading out from the sun! I stamped the birds in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and also stamped the grass with Evening Evergreen ink.
The rest of the card was put together with die cuts – I cropped the fence with Sahara Sand ink and then stamped over it multiple times with the textured label stamp that is in the stamp set- I wanted to make the fence have a more weathered look and this seemed to accomplish that. I cropped the grass directly from the Designer Series Paper – and love the variation in color this created.
The Pebble Enamel Shapes are so fun – and add a finishing touch to the card. Which card is your favorite? I’d love to know!!!
