Last year I used some gorgeous rose gold for some heat embossing, and today I decided to come up with a Clean & Quick SIP card using Note Cards and Envelopes. In fact, I opened a package of the 20 note cards & envelopes and just stamped up the entire package! No, I did not use a stamp positioning tool. This is strictly free hand, starting with the large floral image first.
- Start with that big floral stamp and stamp the front of the Note Card, turn inside and stamp the corner (seen in the photo below), and then the flap of the envelope. These are all stamped in Mango Melody. Look at the detail of the “distINKtive” stamp image! No fancy tricks, just straight ink to paper. Use your “D” clear block.
- Next, stamp your small floral cluster on the diagonal top and bottom as shown. I used So Saffron ink here. Fresh ink really shows these images off, don’t you think? I used the “C” clear block here. These are only stamped on the front of the Note Card. Set aside both of the floral stamps and move on to the leaf cluster.
- As you can see from the picture of the stamp set down at the end of the blog post, there is a stamp with a flower, some splatter, and then a couple of leaves. I cut the stamp apart, separating the leaves from the other two images with Paper Snips to get sharply into the image where I wanted to do surgery. If you are going to do this, apply the stamp sticker to the stamp first. I mounted the leaves on another “C” clear block (yes, I have three of everything from A through D)
- Lastly, I mounted the splatter stamp from Forever Fern to an “A” clear block and use Polished Pink ink pad. I’m pretty sure you will be alright using any hot pink ink you like, but this one is retiring next month or so. I have also used (retired) Watermelon Wonder or Flirty Flamingo for this before.
These cards will be For Sale during the annual sale in early November, in packages of 3 cards and envelopes.
Everything is stamped: Card front without a sentiment, inside corner, and the flap of the envelope! These were quick and easy because I use the stamps often, but you can do it too! There’s room in the upper right corner of the card front to add a sentiment from this fabulous stamp set, too, if you want to add one later.
Without a stamp positioning tool, these Note Cards can be whipped up in no time and are fantastic to have on hand, especially this time of year. Note Cards and Envelopes mail for a regular postage stamp, even though they are extra cute at 3-1/2″ x 5″.
The Flowing Flowers stamp set is a stand-alone stamp set, no coordinating dies or punch. From what I can see in the newest catalog (2022-2023) this stamp set is not going forward, so be sure a grab it NOW.
HOW I DID IT: That cluster in the upper left corner has three images in it and, full disclosure, my photograph of the stamp set does it no compliment as reflection off the cover in the sunlight made it dappled. I use five of these sentiments allllllll the time on cards because — well, just look at that FONT set there!
