Simply A Card

Two Paper Divas recently had their May release and let me just say, the design team killed it with the brand new Tulip Bucket Bouquet stamp set. I have to say that it is so interesting and fun to see all the ways a stamp set is used by different people. With this stamp set there is so much inspiratoin, so you are sure to get plenty of uses out of it!

I decided to create a scene with my Tulip Bucket Bouquet stamp and color it in with my new Dick Blick Studio Brush Markers. I just did a review on these markers and if you want to check that out you can click HERE.

Here’s my latest video, which is the newest in my “Simply a Card” series. Enjoy!

I started with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of white card stock in my Misti and placed my “Tulip Bucket Bouquet” stamp onto the very far left of the panel, overhanging it off the edge a bit. I stamped it in Memento, and since this ink isn’t very crisp or dark I did double stamp each time I stamped the image. I went ahead and masked off the bucket I stamped and moved the stamp to the right a bit and stamped again. The last image I stamped to the far right, overhanging off the right edge of the panel this time to create a bit of cohesion.

After removing my mask, I went ahead and drew in a horizon line with a Micron pen and a t-squared ruler. This just helps make the scene look more complete.

With my scene created I could move onto the coloring. I went ahead and grabbed my Dick Blick Studio Brush Markers and colored the entire image with them. These markers are still new to me, I am still loving them and having a ton of fun playing with them!

I needed a place to put my sentiment, again, I REALLY need to start thinking about this beforehand!! What I decided to do to add a bit of dimension and interest to my panel was cut a piece of card stock with the stitched cloud border die from the Mama Elephant “Stitched Landscape Trio” die set. Then knowing I wanted to flip the clouds over and have them handing down and popped up I went ahead and stamp my sentiment, which is from the “Banners #3” sentiment set, that read “Enjoy You Day”. I LOVE ambiguous sentiments like this. It can be used as a hello card, birthday card, mother’s day, and many others. Also I wanted to mention I stamped the sentiment in SSS Black Dye Ink.

Putting the card together was really a snap. All I did was apply some foam tape behind the cloud border and attach it to the very top of the white colored panel. Finally I attached the white colored panel to an A2 card side folding card base using double sided adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed watching the newest video in the “Simply a Card” series. I said above that I really love the sentiment that I used on this card because it can be used for a number of occasions. This card is already out of my stash! I gave it to my Mother-In-Law for mother’s day and it was a hit!

I’m hoping the video inspired you to pull out some of your supplies and make a card! If you are interested in any of the supplies I used, they are all linked below for your convenience! Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
