Another Lovely Quick Card Created with Stampin'Up! Artistically Inked Stamps & Dies

Today we're creating Another Lovely & Quick Card Created with Stampin'Up! Artistically Inked Stamps & Dies. Tuesday we created a stunning card using black as our contrast...if you missed it check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/10/spectacular-quick-easy-card-with-stampinup-artistically-inked-stamps-ddes.html.

Today we're switching to white die cut...here's today's card...

Hues of happiness


...and a bit closer to check out the focal point...

Hues with

Tuesday's card was a rather uniform background color. Today we're using the Hues of Happiness designer paper and these colors graduate through the rainbow. The section we used as our background uses the deep deep pink flowing into the dark rich yellows. 

A black die cut would have been quite pretty but we decided to switch to white because with this designer paper we got a bit more contrast with the white. We also changed the butterfly to white.

Instead of using the Champagne rhinestones we are useing the Iridescent Rhinestones...these are absolutely stunning because they tend to change color somewhat to match or coordinate with the color they are set on. With the gem cut stones they catch the light and send out beautiful little twinkles.

Agian, this is another one of those card designs that would work well with most of the designer papers in this Hues of Happiness stack. What a fun set of cards you can create simply switching the designer paper behind the die cut.

Stop back next week and see what we're creating then!

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Spectacular Quick & Easy Card with Stampin'Up! Artistically Inked Stamps & Dies

Today we're going to create a Spectacular Quick & Easy Card with Stampin'Up! Artistically Inked Stamps & Dies. I needed a beautiful card for a special person and I didn't have but a few minutes---and this is the card I created....

Flirty

and  bit closer look at the focal point...

Flirty cu

The beauty of this floral die is really hard to beat...using it is all you need for your central focus...using the black cardstock for the die cut layered on top of the designer paper from the Splendid Day set gives you that striking effect that highlights every detail in the die.  

We've added 3 large Champagne rhinestones to the center of the largest flower and medium ones to the center of 3 swirls...this color of rhinestone blends with many of our colors and appears to "match" perfectly. (Note: I've used it wtih Pumpkin Pie and Pale Papaya and this embellishment is also perfect with those colors.)

Then simply adding the sentiment and the little solid butterfly (Daffodil dies) completes the full effect.

It's hard to beat this card for beauty, simplicity and a short amount of construction time! It's a wonderful one to have in your stash ready to go!

and a closer look at the details..

Gold cuFor those of you who aren't in love with coloring or even the "non-coloring" multi-colors used on Tuesday's card...this card is for you! 

Simply ink up this single stamp with Versamark, sprinkle with Gold embossing powder and heat---that's it--the result is absolutely stunning! Simple, quick and easy.

The two gold layers are achieved with the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper which has recently become one of my favorite accent papers---there's a bit of the shiny foil and then it's toned down with the distressing...just simply a beautiful combo to bring some old-world elegance to a modern image.
