Bee Creative Tutorial – Pansy Petal Hello Card

Bee Creative Tutorial – Pansy Petal Hello Card

pansy patch card stamping bumblebee trinket laura milligan

My card today features the beautiful Pansy Petals Suite.  This card is pretty clean and simple – with few supplies.  It goes together pretty quickly – and that’s always a plus in my book!  Because the Pansy Patch stamp set is photopolymer, it is really easy to stamp the flower with good results!   I used two different ink colors on my pansy today – but there are really endless possibilities for colors to use!

If you want to have perfect placement, the stamparatus will give you that!

A Trio of Cards with Quiet Meadow – Facebook Live Tutorial

A Trio of Cards with Quiet Meadow – Facebook Live Tutorial

Quiet Meadow hand stamped card simple cardmaking Laura Milligan

I am loving the Quiet Meadow Bundle – in fact I can honestly say it’s one of my favorites from our new Annual Catalog!  For my Facebook Live this week, I shared three different cards – the first was a super simple card just using the stamp set.  I wanted to show beginning stampers that a beautiful card can be made just by using a few products – in this case, a stamp set, ink, cardstock, and some embellishments.  And even if you have been stamping for years, like I have, we all need a quick and simple card at times!

I love the combination of Basic White with Night of Navy – and that was the color palatte I started with for these three cards.

Stamps, ink and paper – a clean a simple card!   Add a bit of Baker’s Twine and some bling and you have a very pretty card!

You can watch my Facebook Live to see how these three cards were created:

My second card was also very simple – I stuck with the Basic White and Night of Navy colors, but added a die cut from the Meadow Dies, and also an embossed panel and a bit of Designer Series Paper.

For my third card, I brought in a couple more colors –  Fresh Freesia and Highland Heather.  I love these colors paired with Night of Navy.   I also added some more die cuts from the Meadow dies – including the label that I layered my words on.

Which is your favorite?  I had all different responses when I asked this question on my Facebook Live! Some liked the simplest card – others liked the other two best!  My favorites are probably the first and third.  What about you?
