I am on a roll here...two posts in one week! I am trying to make that my new goal. I am getting a little faster at it each time, so I guess what they say...practice, practice, practice is true. 😊
Today's post shows several cards I recently did as a swap. I needed several, and I wanted something quick. This technique really fits that bill. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is so pretty that it does most of the work on its own. Just a simple ribbon and a sentiment and that's really all you need for the card front.
For these cards, I did break out the new Many Messages stamp set and coordinating die. Let me just say this bundle is WAY cool! It is one large stamp that stamps 19 different sentiments and 4 tiny star or heart elements at once. And one cut with its corresponding die and you have 19 sentiments ready at a any time. Can't get much faster than that! I had plenty for these cards and several left over for more cards. I stamped the sentiments on black cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed them in White. They go so well with the DSP, don't you think? And speaking of that DSP; not only is it gorgeous, it is also FREE! What could be better?! It is probably my favorite thing in the Sale-a-Bration catalog. I mean, just look at how pretty it is...
For the card inside, I used the same color mats as I used on the card front; one that corresponded with the DSP. I stamped a sentiment on a Basic White panel, layered the panels and adhered it to the card inside, and that was it! Lickity split! Knocked out all of these plus several more all in one evening. This is a great way to use up that DSP that we all like to collect and have several cards on hand for multiple occasions. A win-win in my book. The only thing left to do was to decorate the envelope, so I used more DSP on the envelope flap.
I will be doing a free Face Book Live class demonstrating this Rip & Flip technique on February 27th 2021 at 1pm CST. So, grab your favorite DSP and some corresponding cardstock and join me to see how they are made. Super easy, and so fun! Hope to see you online!
