Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | In the Spotlight – Lots of Lavender
The clean and simple projects I have to share with you today were all made using the gorgeous Lots of Lavender stamp set, (only available as a FREE Sale-A-Bration choice). I’ve always associated lavender with the country so matched it up with the Wood Textures DSP from the Annual Catalogue and think they go together beautifully 🙂
All the sentiments on my cards are from Eastern Beauty, I love the font of these and really wanted give the curved ones a little more love than they’ve received so far.
All three cards feature the lavender, Wood Textures DSP, sentiments from Eastern Beauty and Basic Pearls. I’ll give a brief overview of each card individually to highlight some of the differences, but all of them have these elements in common.
The lavender outline was stamped in Momento Black ink and coloured with the coordinating stamps in Berry Burst, Pear Pizzazz and Perfect Plum, fussy cut and popped up with dimensionals on each card front. I really like how the layering stamps don’t line up perfectly with the outline, it suited the look I was after perfectly and gives some leeway for any alignment errors 😉
This first card has a piece of Wood Textures DSP die cut with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits circles and adhered to a doily. I lightly marked around the edge of this element with a pencil to know where to add my sentiment and stamped it in Smoky Slate all around.
The second card is on a Sahara Sand base and I cut the DSP to create a pointed piece. The harsh angles of this really didn’t suit my image, but I didn’t want to waste my DSP piece so I covered it with a doily element.
I added a gathered doily to a flat one and popped my sentiment up on top of that, the lavender is also popped up except where it overlaps the sentiment circle.
This final one might be my favourite of the three, I really like all the white space on this one. I created a scalloped bottom to a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and adhered this and the DSP to another piece of the same size and trimmed off the excess.
I added another layer of flowers to the original one and stamped another curved sentiment around the edge of the bouquet. A little bow of Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon added the texture as I didn’t use the doilies on this one.
I hope you like my set of clean and simple, country-style cards, I know I do 🙂 I really like how they are suitable for any occasion or “just because” cards and already have people in mind that I’d like to send them to, I think I’ll have to make some more 😉
