Today's cards all feature the darling new individual stamp from Stampin' Up! called Hello Blossoms. It will be available in the Summer Mini Catalog beginning on May 1st. I think this little stamp is destined to be a best seller ... it's happy and bright, fun and whimsical and perfect for a summer-time thinking of you note. Perfect as well for today's edition of Takin' It To the Top!
So, here's the first card for today. Basic with just a few layers and not a lot of embellishments. It's still a great card and perfect for beginning stampers or when you need to make quick multiples.
The card base is Daffodil Delight cut at 4.25 x 5.5", scored and folded. I added a layer of Melon Mambo Cardstock cut at 2.75 x 3.75" and then Whisper White cut at 2.5 x 3.5". I applied Stampin' Write Markers directly to the rubber using the colors of Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Perfect Plumb, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist and Melon Mambo. Add a bit of 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon and a bow and the card is complete!
Now here's the final card. Again, just a couple of additons are all I did to change this one up and Take It To the Top! I added a double bow, instead of the tied-on faux bow in the previous two cards. And I gave some movement and dimension to the card with a whole flock (is that the right word for a group of butterflies? If you know, leave me a comment!) of tiny, colorful butterflies cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslet and the Big Shot. That's it ... those are the only additions for this final card. But those two additons make this darling little card even more happy and bright than before. And what a thrill this card will bring to the one who receives it!
