Less than 10 minutes card!


Hello!

Erica back on the blog today, probably still suffering a post-Valentine's Day sugar rush. I'm not much for celebrating Va-Da unless it involves chocolate or cake. I'd be lying if I said I would turn down a diamond but we are not big Va-Da people here. Va-Da is short and hip for Valentine's Day, don't'cha know? No? Maybe that sugar rush is making me say cray-cray things...

Right, so a card. That's what y'all are here for? Ok, then, let's get to it. It's gonna be short and sweet today (no, for real this time) as this card is super quick and simple. There is no colouring, just a quick stamping and diecutting and some adhesives and bam!



Using Kraft card stock I had laying around in a very convenient size, I grabbed my stunning Sweet Rose stamp as well as VersaMark ink and my trusted anti-static tool. Oh and my Mini-MISTI. Placing the stamp slightly off the piece of card stock, I dusted generously with the anti-static tool before inking it up with VersaMark. After stamping, I sprinkled clear embossing powder on it and set it with my heat tool. It's such a simple technique and the results are gorgeous. Next I stamped the sentiment 'Happy Birthday' from the same set on the bottom of the panel. The same routine was done here as with the flower: first anti-static tool, second VersaMark ink and third gold embossing powder.

The other card stock pieces are also bits I had lying around, another reason this card was so quick! Layering these with foam tape and double sided tape creates different heights and dimensions. As a final few touches I added a label with diecut numbers in sparkly gold card stock, 70 for my mother's birthday later this year as well as a twine ribbon bow. And no card of mine is complete without a few sequins, right? Yeah, you guys know me so well, don't you? A few from Pink Champagne did the trick.

And that, my friends, was it. This card was so quick to put together thanks to all the bits and pieces I have laying around, I'm really making an effort to use all those ready cut bits before cutting up new ones. Worked out quite well here, didn't it?








Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week!

Don't you just love the beautiful Fall colors in this pic! Here's what I've made for you today:


 I stamped the flower from the Just A Rose stamp set with Memento London Fog using second generation stamping (for no-line coloring) and colored with Copics YR68, Y38, Y35 and YR31 for orange and YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for green. I stamped and embossed the same flower with Wow! White pearl on black cardstock of size 4" x 5.5". I stamped the sentiment from the same set with Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade (stamped twice) and fussy cut it. I inked the left edge of the top folding A2 card base with the DI Spiced Marmalade and adhered the black panel on it. I mounted the rose with foam tape and adhered the sentiment with Sc…
