Feel better soon

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a super sweet “get well soon” card! No matter if someone is feeling “down and out” or “down for the count”, what better way to perk them up than a bright and colorful card! Speaking of color, do you ever wonder about different color combinations and how to figure them out? Head to Pinterest! That’s how I decided on the colors I used today. I started out with Coastal Cabana and I wanted to use colors that I could also use for the flower from Humming Along, so I chose to use Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, and Granny Apple Green with Copper Foil for a little bling!

I first started with the flower on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamped in Smoky Slate ink with my Stamparatus:

The flower is colored in with Light and Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends, the stem and leaf and colored with Light and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends, and the stamen is colored in with Light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends:

This is then heat embossed with copper powder and cut out with the coordinating framelit:

The base layer is Mango Melody cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

The next layer is this design in Coastal Cabana from the Brights 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 3” x 5 ¼” and then two strips of Copper Foil, cut at ¾” x 5 ¼”:

First adhere the Copper Foil strips to the back of the Coastal Cabana DSP (use your grid paper to help line them up) and then adhere to the Mango Melody cardstock:

For the rest of the card front, you will need to cut out flower, a piece of Whisper White Tulle Ribbon tied into a bow, and the sentiment from Florentine Filigree stamp set is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut out with the smaller layering framelit from Lily Framelits Dies, and then cut out a piece of Mango Melody cardstock with the larger layering framelit:

Adhere the flower on the DSP, adhere the bow with a glue dot, and then adhere the layering cardstock pieces together, then adhere to the card front with dimensionals. This is then adhered to a Thick Whisper White cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼”x 11” and scored at 5 ½”:

The inside sentiment is from Humming Along in Coastal Cabana ink and adhere a ¾” strip of the DSP along the bottom, trimming off the excess:

What do you think?? Bright, fun, quick, and easy! All the things a card should be! Have you ever been stuck on color combinations? Just choose one color and see what you get, you just may be surprised!

Easter Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group’s Easter Theme Blog Hop! My name is Christina Miller, I’m an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia, and you are visiting my blog, Christina’s Creative Corner! Whether this is your first stop on the blog hop or you have hopped on over from another site, thank you for letting me share my creation today! So, let’s get started!

For me, holidays are a great time to make and send cards to family and friends to let them know I’m thinking of them. But let’s face it, if you have more than a handful of cards to make, it can be overwhelming! The card I am sharing with you today is a simple and beautiful card to make, but also so easy to make multiples of! This is a great way to use up your ribbon and designer series paper because the new annual catalog will be here before we know it, so let’s make some room for all those new goodies!! Lol

Starting with the Gingham Gala 6” x 6” DSP, cut the color of your choice at 4 ½”, this will give you a 1 ½” x 6” piece, and then cut that in half at ¾”. The remaining piece of DSP will measure 4 ½” x 6”, on the 6” side you will cut this at 3”, which will give you two pieces measuring 3” x 4 ½”. Cutting your DSP at these measurements will give you enough to make two cards from this one piece:

The base layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and is embossed with the Garden Trellis TIEF:

For the rest of the card front, you will need some scrap Whisper White cardstock to stamp the lily, stems, and leaf to cut out with the coordinating framelit die (I stamped the lily in Highland Heather ink and the leaf and stems in Granny Apple Green ink), and then a piece of coordinating organdy ribbon tied into a bow. **TIP-to make sure that the stamp and die line up for cutting, first place the die down, place the stamp inside the die, and then pick up the stamp with either your block or Stamparatus. I also have some tips and tricks about the best stamped image, which you can see that blog post by clicking here:

To assemble the card front, adhere the DSP to the embossed base layer:

I used glue dots to adhere the lily and leaf pieces together, then used dimensionals to adhere the DSP, and used a glue dot to adhere the ribbon:

This completed piece is then adhered to Highland Heather cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut at piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings in Highland Heather ink, the stem in Granny Apple Green ink, the lily in Highland Heather ink, and then adhere the ¾” piece of Gingham Gala DSP along the bottom, trimming off the excess:

If you are looking for a great way to make multiples of for Easter, I hope this helps you! One sheet of colored cardstock, one sheet of Whisper White cardstock, one sheet of DSP, and some scrap for cutting the stamped images gives you two quick and easy cards! Missed out on the Lily Framelits and Organdy Ribbon? No worries! Stamp the lilies on a 2 ¾” x 4 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock (or smaller) and use white ribbon that you have on hand instead!
