Last week was my monthly Inspiration Night and we had a FUN and fabulous time creating this boxed set of note cards that featured the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper and the Scenic Sayings Stamp Set.
The Scenic Sayings stamp set has 6 stamps in it and I found a way to incorporate every single stamp in the set to create this boxed set of cards.
The Box was made from one of our full sized wood mount stamp cases. I used the pear design from the Fruit Stand Designer Paper on the front of this box that is layered on top of Old Olive, Silver Foil and Crumb Cake Card Stock.
A great way to show off a beautiful set of matching note cards is in our plastic stamp cases. This makes a wonderful gift item and something you can work on now for the upcoming holiday season.
Card one is a friendship card. The leaves on this card were made with our Festive Flower builder punch. I punched out the piece that looks like two petals that are connected together and then I simply folded them so that both layers would show and secured them with a glue dot. Looks like I used two punches but it was only one punch, folded in half. The double flower was made with our Petite petals punch and the smallest flower from our Blossom punch. I liked this combination so much that I put these same flowers another card in this set.
Let's take a look at it...
The bright colors of this card combined with the fun sentiment make for a really happy card. The next time life gives you lemons, why not take out a piece of this DSP and make a cheerful card that is sure not to only brighten your day but the day of whomever you give it too and that will certainly make you happy!
The next card is a soft and pretty Congratulations card. It features three punches that I layered together. Elegant Butterfly, Bitty Butterfly and the Tree Builder punch. It also shows our new Layering Oval framelits that serve as the base for the greeting.
The final card in the set is my favorite.
It is a sweet strawberry card that features a heart shaped strawberry that was made with the You stamp from Scenic Sayings as well as one of the flowers from the Blossom punch. I also added a tiny jeweled flower from the Tree Builder punch.
It was so fun sharing these cards with my downline.
I got a lot of positive feedback on these quick and simple cards and everyone seemed to have a great time.
Inspiration night is one of my favorite nights of the month because I love to inspire, create and share and that is what we enjoying doing together on a monthly basis with the wonderful ladies in my Stamped With Aloha ohana.
I hope you were inspired by these cards and if you love them so much that you'd like to create a set of your own then the opportunity to do so is JUST around the corner.
