I recently needed a quick hand stamped card to give to one of my friends. I thought it would be nice to surprise her with a card and also make a" little something" to put inside of it. Here is what I made her.
The card is a 3" x 3" in size and is super easy to make. All you do is ink your stamp with the same color of ink as card stock then and stamp the image onto it. Here I used one of the flower images from the Mixed Bunch stamp set (found on page 17 in the Ocasions Mini Catalogue )--this set has quicly became one of my favs. The matching Classic Stampin' Pad and Card stock that I used is one of Stampin' Up!'s new 2012-2013 In-Colors...Pool Party. I then punched out the image with the Blossom punch (found on page 17 in the Occasions Mini Catalogue)-- another one of my favs. Next I stamped the center of the flower on Whisper White card stock using Lucky Limeade Classic Ink and punch the flower center out using a 3/4" Circle Punch. I then placed it in the center of the flower using a Stampin' Dimensional to give it a bit of a 3-D effect. Next I took another product favourite--Dazzling Damonds Dazzling Details and applied it to various pasrt of the flower to make it shimmer.
I then picked the "hello" saying from the Ting Tags stamp set, inked it with Early Espresso Classic Ink , stamped it ontoWhisper White card stock and punched it out with the Jewllery Tag Punch. I then placed it in the flower center. I place using my SNAIL adhesive and placed a Rhinestone Basic jewel on top to add more bling. I did the same exact thing to a second flower but this time I added a circle magnet on the back so using the 1-3/4" circle punchmy friend can place this on her fridge at home. It is sure easy to turn your stamped creations into magnets as all of Stampin' Up! punches will punch through the magnetic sheets found on page 216 in the Idea Book & Catalogue. These Magnetic Sheets are also easily cut by the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine. So the next time you need a quick and easy "little something" to stick in someone's card, try giving them a fridge magnet.
