Typically I prefer a more clean, bold, solid look rather than shabby chic, rustic, or subtle look. What about you??? For this card though I decided to stamp on the background designer series paper rather than adding another layer. It like a whole new way of stamping for me. You should try it out! Stamping on Designer Paper is fun!
Isn’t it beautiful?? Have I mentioned I also like flowers?!?! lol I love them so much I even created a Tag for easy search on all my flower cards. Just click here!
I started with a Pool Party card base. Next, I took a piece of the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration 2019) and adhered it down the center! Using the Painted Seasons Stamp Set and Tranquil Tide Ink, I stamped a few greenery pieces all around the top and bottom. This was done before layering the greeting and everything so it wasn’t in the way. Next, I added a little bit of adhesive in the center and pressed 2 pieces of the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon into it. It is okay if the ribbon doesn’t seem super secure as the greeting will help hold it in place too!
The greeting is from the Part of My Story (Sale-A-Bration 2019) Stamp Set and I punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added the greeting to the card front. Dimensionals adhere to the ribbon and the bumps and grooves much better than using Snail Adhesive. Next, I stamped and die cut the flowers in Gorgeous Grape using the Painted Season Stamp Set. I added the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensonals too. To finish it off, I stamped a few Gorgeous Grape star clusters all around.
I really love how this card turned out and I am going to try stamping on designer paper more often now. What do you think?
