Hi, Happy Monday. Today I am sharing two quick cards made using the JustRite Stampers Burlap Chevron Background stamp. I love this stamp, it is so versatile! The cards are very different but use the same base pieces. The first card is a baby card that can be used for a baby shower or a welcome new baby. The second card is a “thinking of you” card.
To make the first card start with a 10″ x 7″ piece of gray card stock, score the card stock in half to make a 5″ x 7″ card base. Stamp the chevron stamp on a piece of white card stock using grey ink, I used a Close to My Heart ink called Grey Flannel. Next cut out the chevron stamp image to fit the card base and adhere it to the card. Run a piece of rick-a-rack or ribbon along the edge of the stamped piece and the card base. Finally add a sentiment and any embellishments that you would like. I added a stamped image using the same ink pad as used for the chevron, I cut it out and backed it using the grey card stock and adhered it to the front of the card, I also added some felt elephant embellishements that I had.
Here is a look at the finished card:
The card turned out really cute!
For the second card I used the same stamp, but this time use a brown ink, I used a Stampin Up ink called Creamy Caramel. For this card use a kraft paper card base, I used a premade 5″ x 7″ card base that I had. Next stamp the image, I stamped it on a shimmery cream colored stock. Adhere the trimmed stamped image onto the card base. Next using the Spellbinders Contemporary Diamonds die set cut out the larger die using brown card stock, cut it a second time using kraft paper. Adhere the brown frame onto the card then adhere the kraft paper centers onto the brown frame. Run a piece of tan/brown ribbon along the center of the die cut.
Cut the Spellbinders Blooms one flower dies using a yellow card stock, cut each die onece, cut the middle size flower and additional time. Next enhance the flower petals by adding some distress ink to the edges. I used Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge along with the creamy caramel. I adhered the flower in layers using pop dots in between each layer to give the flower lots of depth. For the finishing touches stamp the sentiment from the Penny Black stamp set “Thinking of You” directly onto the panel of the card with the chevron background. I used Rust Hinge for this.
Finally I added a gem in the center of the flower! Here is a look at the finished card:
These were both nice easy cards to make, but they both look completely different. I was very happy with the finished results.
