By now you all know that I enjoy cardmaking but don’t have much time to enjoy as much as I would love to, with a full time job, a husband and a little one, my time gets filled pretty quickly, so I have learned to still enjoy this paper crafting passion of mine, but I need to come up with quick and easy cards, so I can squeeze cardmaking into my life..
Honestly speaking I feel like paper crafting really keeps me sane, and when I don’t create I feel like the stress starts to build up, so I really think that still making time to make cards has helped me to keep myself sane and in check 🙂 and learning how to make quick and easy has even made this better for me, as I get the instant gratification on finishing my cards in no time.. I feel frustrated if I have to spend a lot of time in one project, specially cause that means multiple days, as I don’t have much time available in one single day, so quick and easy has become more and more my go-to for paper crafting.. I am sure you can relate with me..
I still want to hand made my cards and make one-of-a-kind card to a special someone, but I need to accommodate the fact that time is not so much available lately.. ha!
This card used the petal passion memories and more card pack, and the cake soiree stamp set for the sentiment, really there is little stamping and the coloring is so easy when using the stampin’ blends markers, I love our alcohol based markers, they make it so easy to color, and it all looks so professional, you can blend the colors so easy and I love that you don’t see the strokes you make when coloring as with other non-alcohol based markers..
As you can see on the close up picture I added wink of stella to the flowers as this adds the shimmery look on the flowers, making them look even more beautiful, don’t you think?
Using any of the memories and more card packs that we have available makes the card making process so easy, as you just need to embellish and don’t have to spend too much time in the designing process.. also because all the products from Stampin’ Up! color coordinate beautifully, this process is even easier, as the embellishments, paper, ink all color coordinate perfectly, so give it a try next time you are making a card.. you will see how easy this is 🙂 let me know how it goes..
As always, below is the list of items I use to make this card, you can click on any of the images below to go to my online store where you can purchase any of the items you need to duplicate this card.
