Simple Card Sketches with Petal Passion Designer Series Paper

Simple Card Sketches

Happy Monday! Love simple card sketches? Today’s cards are for you! If you noticed I was MIA last Friday, I’m sorry! These cards were meant for Friday’s post, but my hubby and I got away for a few days of rest and relaxation at the beach last week and ended up coming home later than planned. We had a wonderful time, but to make it up to you, I’ve got a special give-away. Make sure to read to the end for details!

Just Add Color

Today’s cards feature more of the gorgeous black and white Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (DSP) I shared last week. It’s amazing what just a little coloring does to make this paper POP! And that’s what makes it so fun and versatile! Possibilities abound!!! (That’s a hint about tomorrow’s bonus post!)

Stampin’ Write Markers are the coloring medium of choice for all three cards above, including the multi-colored sentiment on the top one. You know how much I recommend these… for so many reasons! {If not, see this post HERE!}

Here’s the details for each card, starting at the top, clockwise (items in RED are retiring and only available until supplies last or May 31, 2018):

  • ‘Thoughts & Prayers’ Card: Peekaboo Peach Cardstock, Classic Stampin’ Pad and Stampin Write Marker, Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker; Sentiment from ‘Rose Wonder’ Stamp set
  • ‘Here’s To Celebrating You’ Card: Real Red Cardstock, Classic Stampin’ Pad and Stampin’ Write Marker, Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker; Sentiment from ‘Perennial Birthday’ Stamp set
  • ‘Thinking Of You’ Card: Lovely Lipstick Cardstock and Stampin’ Write Marker, Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker, Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, Clear Wink of Stella glitter; Sentiment from ‘Lots of Love’ Stamp set. Sneak Peek at the NEW 1/8″ grosgrain ribbon coming June 1 in all five 2018-2020 In-Colors (Lovely Lipstick shown)

Savvy Tips, Tricks & Techniques

  • Cut DSP 3″ square; cardstock 3-1/8″ (or 3-1/4″) square, depending on how much you like peeking out. That’s 16 cards from a single sheet of 12″ x 12″ DSP!
  • Stamp your sentiment (with ink from Stampin’ Write Markers or Classic Stampin’ Pads) on Whisper White Cardstock and use your favorite punches for quick cuts. 
  • Pop both the cardstock and sentiment up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give these simple cards more personality.
  • Step up the “wow” factor with Wink of Stella clear glitter and a coordinating ribbon.
  • Use Notecards and Envelopes for quick and easy ready-made cards.
  • Recognize this card sketch? I recently shared a “sweet” friend card using this same design made with the Tutti-Frutti DSP. Check it out HERE.
  • If you’ve missed the other card projects featuring this paper, you can see them HERE and HERE.
Going, Going… almost GONE!
