Simple, Sassy & Sensational Happiness Abounds
Simple is always the most difficult for me. This series has been a good challenge for me because I realize some people don't have a lot of time to spend on a card. I love being able to offer you several options for cards using the same stamp set. I have lots of flowers in my yard and that is where I got my inspiration for this series.
The simple version of this card requires an extra layer of Basic White cardstock because the Stampin' Blends will bleed through. And I cannot draw a perfect circle, but I have a great little trick for that. Use one of the Layering Circle dies and the Stampin' Write Basic Black marker and trace around it. A few quick punches on the corners using the Very Best Trio Punch. Layer onto card face.
For the Sassy Version I added a layer of the Perfectly Penciled DSP. Using the Layering Circle Dies I cut out the circle and then used the tracing trick. I used the dies to cut the flower. A quick tip: it is easier to color the image before cutting. I used the Gray Granite ink for the leaves for a softer look. Stampin' Dimensionals are perfect to pop the flower up for added interest.
For the Sensational Card I stamped two additional leaf images. I used the Lacy Die for an added layer of interest. It didn't take much time and I love the layers.
