Hey Crafties! Today’s cards are easy, quick and pretty! This design idea is great for mass producing cards or if you need one in a hurry. I only used a stamp, a stencil, a word die set and a little ink blending, that’s it! These cards literally came together in minutes!
I went with my favorite Simon Says Stamp stamp set, “Beautiful Flowers“. Now, I’ve used this set in so many cards and you can find here, here and here where I colored them but this time, I only stamped it with Distress Traditional Antique Linen ink.
For the stencil, I went with a new favorite of mine, Paper Rose Distressed Brick stencil. I used the stencil on this card as well! I stamped my image first and then ink blended over it with the stencil. To mix it up, I used 2 different colors for the ink. The pink is Simon’s “Guava” Pawsitively Saturated Inks and for the blue “Surf“. I love the look of these backgrounds!
tip for mass producing cards:
It can get boring creating the same design over and over so to break it up, change the colorways. This tip makes it more enjoyable plus it’ll make a terrific card gift set.
I used Simon’s “Sending Smiles” word die for both cards. I die cut the shadow in black cardstock for the blue card and Dark woodgrain cardstock from Lawn Fawn for the pink card.
And, that’s it!! My card panels were trimmed down to 4″ x 5-1/4″ so I could have a border. Love the boldness of that word die against the softness of the card design.
