Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend was fantastic! Mine was good, but "souper" busy....more about that in Tuesday's post. Today I have a fun and simple valentine card to show you because it's Simple Card Sunday!
When I first saw the Occasions catalog I immediately love the Perfect Pennants set and coordinating Banners framelits (which are available separately or in a bundle so you can save 15%)! When it came time to place my pre-order I waffled on the set a bit, but in the end I ordered it and boy am I glad I did! I'm finding it a great and versatile set that works well with the Banners framelits and without. Today's card is a great example of how I've used it without the framelits.
I created a fun and simple card using the popular ombre effect. The heart image is from the Perfect Pennants set and stamped in shades of purple...Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum & Elegant Eggplant. I stamped the hearts on Whisper White cardstock which was matted with Brushed Gold cardstock. Gold is so trendy right now...I'm seeing it everywhere! I used the "love" from the Pennant Parade set and stamped it on one of the Wisteria Wonder hearts with some Elegant Eggplant ink. I finished the card off with an Elegant Eggplant card base.
Head on over to my online store to get everything you need to re-create this card at home...you could even get a series of pink or turquoise inks to create your card! Remember, if you're ordering ink pads you're going to want to order an ink refill at the same time. Our firm foam ink pads ink our stamps beautifully, but don't hold as much ink as our old felt ink pads. By having an ink refill on hand you will always be able to have a nice juicy ink pad ready for stamping! And, don't forget to check back on Tuesday to see about my "souper" fun weekend!
Have an inspired day!
