Coloured Heartfelt Blooms Card

by Joanne James29. March 2018 20:00


I've a quick post for you this evening to share a card I made a couple of months ago in my Sale-A-Bration class using one of the Sale-A-Bration sets that has been hugely popular with my customers - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Heartfelt Blooms - Heartfelt Blooms is one of Stampin' Up!'s new Distinktive stamps: they lay down ink at different opacities, giving the finished image more depth. When you look at the stamp itself, you almost wonder if it will stamp anything, yet lightly inking the stamp results in a perfect photographic finish. The set also has three useful, beautifully scripted sentiments too - I particularly like the wording of the one I used on this card.

A Touch Of Colour -  The Heartfelt Blooms image can either be stamped in a single colour to create a simple monochromatic card, or stamped in a neutral base that allows colour to be added. Today's card is based on one that appeared in our quarterly demonstrator magazine where the image is stamped in Archival Black on Shimmery White cardstock, then colour is subtly added over the image using inks and an aquapainter. 

Petal Passion Stripes - I paired the image with an angled panel of Petal Passion striped designer series paper; the brushstroke-style stripes compliment the image perfectly.

If you would like to add this set to your stamp collection, you only have another couple of days to do so before the end of this year's Sale-A-Bration promotion, after which it will be gone forever!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
