Hello Note Cards Floral Series No.4

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hi All,

I’m back with another set of notecards. You may immediately notice that the ‘hello’ is different compared to previous days. I felt that this pattern looked far more elegant with a stamped sentiment instead of a die-cut one. The floral pattern is once again printed on a gorgeous matte vellum. It’s incredibly vibrant! The card base is also matted and in a darker kraft/brown shade than previous cards as well.

Here’s a closer look!

The cards measure 4.25″ x 5.5″ and have a side fold as well.

Mother’s Day Postage Stamp Greeting Card

Hi all,

I’m back with an all new mother’s day card to share. For this card, I wanted to create a postage stamp as the main focal point of the card. At first I thought I wondered how I could find a postage stamp large enough to feature, then I realized how simple it could be to create one in silhouette studio.

To break things down think of the postage stamp as a rectangle and the edge is created by welding in a row of circles. I added in some various sizes of words for the sentiment and a beautiful die-cut of roses.

Here’s a closeup of those roses – look at all that sparkle!

Doily Banner Notecards

Hi all,

It’s no secret that in the craft world everyday items become the foundation to create something new. Today, I’m taking fancy lace like papers we use to dress our desserts to create a set of notecards. Now, I didn’t actually use the paper version for a doily, but rather a set of images from a stamp set. A while back I purchased a couple of gorgeous stamp sets from My Minds Eye that included a couple of doily images that I thought would make the perfect foundation for a set of notecards. When I purchased these sets, I immediately knew how I wanted to purpose those specific stamps.

I used my favorite blank onyx ink and stamped the doily images as the foundation for the cards. Next, I layered on dimensional die-cuts of another set of doilies. Yes, doilys on top of doilys. Too busy? Absolutely not. By keeping the base black and neutral, the die-cuts are grounded to something – otherwise they’d just look like they are ‘floating’ in the middle of the page.

Next, I used a woodgrain banner stamp and grabbed a few of my favorite spring ink colors from Hero Arts. The key was to not add too much color. Keep it simple.

To finish off the cards I added some details (stripes, borders, and a few extra woodgrain lines) using a black gel pen.

I love that these cards are so simple but have multiple layered images to create a beautiful visual impact.

Boxed Mini Cards featuring Altenew Stamp Layering

Hi all,

I recently purchased a beautiful set of stamps from Altenew. I am in love with this company for the reason that many of their stamp sets are layering stamps. When you add various hues together, you achieve these beautiful dimensional images!

Here’s a quick glance a boxed set I created. I made 10 mini cards and 10 envelopes to match (they are under the stack in the box).

The sentiment is a mini stamp from a Simon Says Stamp collection.
