Heartfelt Blooms the new Distinctive stamps in the Sale-A-Abration catalog. Choose it FREE with a $50 order.

My card today is one of three cards I created using the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  It’s a new type of stamp that Stampin’ Up! has developed that lays down ink at different opacities giving the finished image more depth.  I’m not sure how it’s done I just know that it makes the flowers in this image look real.  And the best part…you can get this set completely FREE with a $50 order!

Tips:

  • I kept the color scheme and layout of the card very basic so that the flower was the real focal point.
  • The image looks great in all different colors but on this card I chose Smokey Slate so that I could add some color using the Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. All I did was color right over the image.   If you haven’t tried our new alcohol markers yet you really need to.  They make coloring easy with no stress.  Take it from a gal that never favored coloring until now.

  • Stamping your sentiment right across part of your image is something that newer stampers wouldn’t often think to do. I love the single focal point look and It’s a great way to be able to use a larger sentiment when there appears to be not enough space.
  • Scatter a few adhesive backed pearls on your card to add that little something extra.

I’m having fun giving away the cards I post every day.  All you need to do is make a comment and the next day I announce who I’ve randomly chosen to receive the card of the day.  If chosen you have 3 days to email me your address.  If you would like to join the fun below to comment.  Not sure what to say…then just let me know which you use more of…rhinestones or pearls?

Stop back tomorrow when I’ll be sharing another way to use the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set.
