In order to keep the post short today, I am just going to skim through how I made these cards, But fear not I have a detailed video attached to the post at the bottom which will take you step by step on how I made each of these cards.


Today I have five cards using one stamp called So beautiful from the new Crafty Hugs release. I did use a few other stamp sets just for their sentiment as this stamp set only has one sentiment. If you love coloring this is an amazing stamp for that. I used me copics to color the images. The illustration of this stamp is very whimsical and keeping that in mind I went with a very whimsical bright and cheery theme.

Card 1:

I made a shape card for this one. I kept the shape very wonky to stay true to the whimsical theme.



Shape cards are a lot of fun to make and I always like the way they turn out.




Card 2:

This is a trifold card with a peek through window. I have all the measurements and how I made it on on the video attached below.


This was my favorite of the five I created. I love how clean and simple this card turned out, yet it has so much dimension to it.

Card 3:

Highlight image on a Kraft card stock. Another clean and simple card. The sentiment is from the SSS Greeting Mix 1 stamp set.

Black on kraft is my all-time color combo love. But when you add a pop of color it takes it to a whole new level . Don't you agree?

Card 4:

Black and white with a pop of color you can never go wrong with this combo!!! I used Festive Berries Distress Oxide Ink for ink blending.

Notice how I kept the envelop aqua, that's just to add an element of surprise when the recipient see the card inside of it. The aqua shade of the envelope compliments the coral on the card beautifully. .

Card 5:

Using a gingham pattern with this bright and cheery colored florals makes this card feel so fresh. I love how the black and white gingham compliments the colored flowers.

The sentiment on this card as well as the previous one is from the sentiment strips that SSS sells. they are so easy to use and have some fun messages on them.
