|This month’s step-by-step cards feature products from our fabulous Sale-A-Bration offering that you and your customers won’t want to miss: the Friendly Hello Stamp Set plus our Friendly Hello 12″ x 12″ (30.5 cm x 30.5 cm) Designer Series Paper—FREE with a qualifying purchase. Available until February 28, 2022, these products are the perfect focus for a ring-in-the New-Year workshop.|
The Hello card is simple and fast. Start by stamping the charming little bird image in Gray Granite ink, then add subtle color using Watercolor Pencils. Brush over the image with a Water Painter to create a light wash. Layer Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper under this focal image for extra prettiness. Tip: To just stamp the “Hello” sentiment, cover the word below it with a sticky note.
Step up the color on the Gruss card using both watercolor pencil assortments for richness and depth. We also adhered a Cajun Craze Cardstock frame on two edges and backed the sentiment with a little frayed Gold 3/8″ (1 cm) Fine Art Ribbon.
|To add a tactile layer, we ran a piece of Bumblebee Cardstock through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder. The fussy-cut cosmos flowers popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals are a great finishing touch.|
For our Coucou card, we stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink, then applied Heat and Stick Powder and Gilded Leafing. We also added a few more fussy-cut layers and a sprinkling of Genial Gems to finish.
