Delightful Characters from Patterned Papers Steal the Spotlight to Create Punny Cards
Today’s greeting card was just eight cinchy steps thanks to the two new products I used from Stampin’ Up!’s latest catalog.
Centre Stage was stolen by the adorable moose and Flamingo Pink fox scattered on one sheet from the new Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper. Warning: Fussy cutting is required, but it’s virtually painless.
How ’bout that greeting? Wild About You is included in the coordinating 14-piece Pieces & Patterns stamp set.
Pick a Pattern Suite
I have to confess that this suite did not capture me at first sight. Or second. Or even third. Heck, I had to study it before I determined it was for me. But like many crafty supplies, deep study reveals lots of details and lots of possibilities.
Look what’s included in the set.
The greetings are sweet. The images are quite random. This will be a plus when creating cards for everyone: kids, teens (note that they’re in their own category), men and women of all sorts.
The Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper is just as eclectic. Check out the campy options: retro cameras, mod posies, mushrooms, dinos, old school pencils and cute wildlife. The patterns on the reserve side featuring the same color scheme make card-building a snap.
Just Stamp Steps
- Pick your favorite hand-drawn objects, characters or land formations from the patterns.
- Crop. The large oval from the Stitched Shape Framelits pulls together images and the greeting.
- Stamp. Pick a greeting. Two of the greetings have outline lettering that’s fun to color—just sayin.
- Color. Use ink from the lid of an ink pad with a Blender Pen, or color directly with a Stampin’ Write Marker.
- Glue. Adhere all the elements using Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue for a mail-able greeting card destined to bring a smile to the recipient.
- Send. #MakeACardSendACard
