Today's card highlights the "love" stamp from the set. It's ideal for coloring in with markers, leaving plain or quickly adding funky dots like I did with a Stampin' Up! Rose Red Marker. TIP: I inked the full stamp in Rose Red and carefully removed the ink with a cloth (moistened with a touch of Stampin' Mist) from the "you much" portion of the stamp. Voil?. Omission stamping.
The flower is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. A Pink Pirouette 1/4" Circle and a Cameo Coral Boho Blossom layer over a bloom created with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and Stampin' Up!'s Exclusive Birds & Blooms Sizzlits Die (Rose Red card stock). A snippet of Rose Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon pumps up the corner, hanging out with a Wire Clip from the Stampin' Up! Clips Assortment.
The layout was inspired by Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday sketch. The card base is Whisper White (4.25 x 5.5). A Cameo Coral Panel lands on top, textured using Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots and my Big Shot. The lower portion layers Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper (available January 19–this one is very 1960's–groovy, baby) over Rose Red card stock. A strip of Pink Pirouette runs horizontally for additional contrast.
TIP: The "you much" sentiment is part of the "Love" stamp. However, I colored just the text I wanted with a Stampin' Up! Rose Red Marker. One of the benefits of SU's markers is you can isolate parts of a stamp. I layered the sentiment over a Large Oval Punch of Rose Red and topped it off with a label holder from Hodgepodge Hardware. Two Circle Rhinestone brads provide dazzle on each side.
TIP: For a quick and pretty envelope, I adhered the flip side of my 2-sided Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap. Simply turn the flap over and cut away the excess. I love the mix of the formal paper with the perfectly coordinated colors of the retro pattern in the card. Very chic!
