Left over card kits

December 4, 2020

I found a box with some retired ribbon and card kits in my stash and although I won’t use the ribbon on my projects, I thought I would use up the card kits. I had cut some of the Laser Cut Specialty Design Paper from a previous catalogue into pieces which I attached to Soft Sea Foam card. I cut a window in Very Vanilla card using the Layering Squares Dies and stamped them with sentiments – “happy birthday” and “With Deepest Sympathy” from the Peaceful Moments stamp set using Soft Sea Foam ink. I embossed the stamped panels and attached the Designer Series Paper panels behind the opening.

The whole piece is attached to scored and folded Soft Sea Foam card. For the first “With Deepest Sympathy” card, I stamped the two solid floral images from the Floral Essence stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Blushing Bride ink.

I coloured the centre of the small flower using the Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend and cut out the flowers. I attached the small flower to the large flower using dimensionals before attaching the flower to the card front. To decorate the inside of this card, I stamped the greeting from the Timeless Tulips stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Soft Sea Foam ink.

I also stamped the small flower from the Floral Essence stamp set beside the greeting using Blushing Bride ink and coloured the centre of the flower using the Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend.

For the second “With Deepest Sympathy” card I stamped the large flower from the Band Together stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Flirty Flamingo ink. I coloured the flower using the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends and cut it out. The flower is attached to the card front. To decorate the inside of this card, I stamped the same greeting from the Timeless Tulips stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Soft Sea Foam ink and added another flower which I had stamped, coloured and cut out.

For the “Happy Birthday” card I stamped the leaf image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set twice onto Very Vanilla card using Soft Sea Foam ink. I stamped the flower from the same stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Calypso Coral ink. I also stamped the butterfly from this stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Mint Macaron ink. I cut out each of the images using the co-ordinating Natures Thoughts Dies and attached them to the card front. I did add mini dimensionals underneath the wings of the butterfly and a glue dot in the centre of the body to give it some dimension. To decorate the inside of this card, I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Soft Sea Foam ink. I also stamped the butterfly from the Positive Thoughts stamp set three times around the greeting using Mint Macaron ink.

I really love these card, I hate throwing out kits when I find them but sometimes I just don’t have time to make them up. Unfortunately I did need a couple of Sympathy cards for which I think these soft colours are just perfect.

Bye for now,

Kris
