Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities May Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing the beautiful Hugs from Shelli kit and sharing our alternative project ideas to help inspire you to think outside the box.
For my alternative projects, I decided to show how to use the beautiful stamp set from this kit to create clean and simple notecards with a few basic supplies. I chose to use the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes (item #146911) that are retiring and paired it with my favorite technique, heat embossing. It is the best way to create beautiful card designs with a touch of elegance.For my first card design, I chose the notecard with the Blackberry Bliss color wash background and heat embossed the floral image and splatter image with Silver embossing powder to create a pretty background. I just love the sentiments in this stamp set and the beautiful fonts are perfect for heat embossing. I chose the Thank You sentiment and heat embossed it with Silver embossing powder onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. I then punched it out using the Pretty Label Punch (item #143715). To add a touch of color, I created a watercolor wash over the sentiment with Blackberry Bliss Classic ink and an Aquapainter to coordinate with the card base.
To decorate the envelope, I used both of the stamp images to stamp both the front and back of the envelope with Blackberry Bliss Classic ink. It just adds a nice finishing touch to coordinate with the card design.
For my second card design, I chose to use one of the note cards with the Mint Macaron color wash background. This time I created the background using the birds and feather images from the stamp set and heat embossed them with Gold embossing powder. For the sentiment, I chose the Hello image and heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch (item #145667). I added a Pool Party watercolor wash over the embossed sentiment with Pool Party Classic ink and an Aquapainter. You may wonder why I chose to use Pool Party instead of Mint Macaron and the reason was that I didn't check when I initially made the card and actually thought the card base was Pool Party. I am happy that it worked out as a happy little accident.
Once again I stamped the envelope with the coordinating images in Pool Party Classic ink to decorate the front and back. The Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes contains 20 printed note cards with 5 each of 4 designs in two colors - Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron, as well as 20 envelopes. You can create a wonderful variety of card designs with this pack for a variety of occasions. This pack is only available while supplies last or until June 3rd. If you live in the U.S. and do not have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you with your creative needs.
