I have to give a shout out and credit to the lovely and uber talented, Tamara Overbeek, for the design of this stylish card. I CASED a card of hers that she posted online. 🙂 Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
In fact, I loved it so much I made several, in different colours. Here they are in Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight and Strawberry Slush. To add colour to the line art stamps, I simply coloured them in with the matching markers, II, DD and SS. Isn’t that quick and easy? Designer Series Paper from the All Abloom DSP Stack is cut out with the Top Note Die, for the bottom layer. I always, always, always, use Stampin’ Up Whisper White cardstock to stamp on. Did you know that it used to be called Ultrasmooth white? It has a silky smooth texture and ink dries on it like a dream, quickly and without smearing. My black ink is Memento Tuxedo Black which dries quickly, is fade resistant and acid free.
I punched out the ice cream stamp and a matching tag, layered them and used Linen Thread to tie them to the card. ( Note: the punch I used is now retired but you could easily swap out another punch, like the Scallop Oval or the Decorative Label). As an added bonus, the linen thread coordinates with the Crumb Cake base layer.
I hope you like these cards. Thanks again to Tamara! Remember to inspire, create and share!
