SAB #SimpleStamping Saturday – Tags in Bloom. Welcome back to another of my Sale-a-Bration #SimpleStamping Saturday specials. Today I am featuring one of the new stamp sets that will be available from 3rd March. Tags in Bloom coordinates with the Label Me Fancy and Label Me Lovely Punches in the Spring/Summer Mini Catalogue. I used this set at my Coffee and Card event earlier this week and the ladies loved it.
I think any stamp set that works with a punch is a real bonus, but to coordinate with two is extra special. But I am getting ahead of myself. The first card uses just the stamp set and some watercolour pencils with a Blender Pen. A really simple design, but the finished card is perfect for a little note to someone. The sentiment is general enough that it can be used for all kinds of occasion, or ‘Just Because’, my favourite kind of card.
To step the card design up a little, I introduced one of the punches, and used the Two-Step Stamping elements to add the colour to the card. The dashed outline fits perfectly in the punch, so is great for adding some additional dimension. The Melon Mambo card carries the colour through the design. This will become more prominent in the next design.
I really don’t use Embossing Folders enough and I must make a concerted effort to change that. There are so many available and they add a little extra, without being too intrusive. The Coastal Weave 3D Embossing folder is a wonderfully subtle effect and is great for so many cards. To show it off to its best, I fussy cut the label and floral image before popping it up on Dimensionals over the 3D Texture. I added some extra bling to the card by heat embossing both the dotted outline and the sentiment, using the Shimmer Black Powder. The finishing touch was some ‘flicks’ of Frost White Shimmer Paint applied using an Aqua Painter.
