Sandi MacIver – Stampin With Sandi – Stampin Up Seasons of Whimsy
Happy Hump Day my stamping friends and welcome back to my card making blog. To celebrate hump day, here is a fast and easy Stampin Up Seasons of Whimsy card for you.
The Seasons of Whimsy stamp set is the coveted Host Set from the Stampin Up Holiday Catalogue (page 3). You can earn this set with “Stampin Rewards” (formerly host dollars) by placing a $200. or higher order.
At this time of the year many of us are mass producing our holiday cards for our friends and family and we are in a rush to get them in the mail so I made colouring this card super easy.
Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Stampin Up Seasons of Whimsy Card:
I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and used the light markers from the Stampin Blends Pink Pirouette, Pool Party and Old Olive to colour the entire image.
Then I went back and highlighted with the darker marker.
To add a little “background noise” I used the “burst” stamp in Pool party not only around the ornaments, but on the card base too. You could add small rhinestones to the center of each if you wished, I decided not to.
Don’t have the Stampin’ Blends? no problem, stamp the images in Archival Basic Black ink and then you can use your aqua painter or blender pen and the ink pad lids to colour your images.
