Hello again, sweet crafters! This is Ashlea and I’m back today to show you a cute card I created using Sweet Stamp Shop’s Card Making Starter Kit! The card I created was made using the PDF’s included when you purchase the kit. The PDF’s come with explicit instructions on how to use the products included in the kit. The kit also comes with lots of coloring pages and A2 sized card fronts decorated with Sweet Stamp Shop designed images–like these donuts!
Print/Cut Out Images and Color with Pencil
After I printed the page with this design on it, I trimmed the design down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and colored all of the donut images with colored pencil. I didn’t do any shading as I wanted the colors to be bold and flat, almost as if it were printed in color.
Stamp Birthday Sentiment on to Black Cardstock
I wanted an embossed sentiment, so I used the “Wish Big” sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on a piece of black cardstock and embossed it with fluorescent pink embossing powder to pull in the colors of the patterned card front. I adhered this piece to the center of the patterned card front with foam tape to add dimension.
Create a Mat for the Card Front
To make the pink even more dominant on the card, I used a piece of 4″x 5 1/4″ colored card stock that was very close in color to the embossing powder and using it as a mat for the card front. I adhered the card front in the center of the colored cardstock and then adhered all of that together to an A2 sized card base. Finally, I added some Rhubarb Crumble Nuvo drops to the corners of the sentiment block for some added interest and dimension.
I hope this has inspired you to create using the PDF’s included in your card making kit. I love that all of these beautiful images and patterns are included and can be used as coloring practice or for cards again and again. Thank you so much for stopping by today! I’ll see you soon!
