Elements of Style Card Samples

Here are several cards made with Elements of Style. It’s a popular stamp but it’s not the style I normally gravitate toward. My upline (hi Cindy!) asked me to help her come up with some ideas for swaps using this set and these are the results:

Version 1

Stamps: Elements of Style; Card stock: Regal Rose, Shades of Spring DSP, Old Olive, Whisper White, Apricot Appeal; Ink: Old Olive Marker, Regal Rose Marker, Old Olive Classic Ink, Pretty in Pink Classic Ink; Accessories: Modern Label Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Big Shot, Sponge Dauber, Circle Rhinestone Brad, Dimensionals, Cropadile, Glue Dots.

Version 2:

It’s hard to see in the picture, but I sponged a mixture of Close to Cocoa Reinker and Champagne Shimmer Paint directly on the image, then stamped it onto the vellum.

Version 5: I think I hate the green butterfly. I may try a different color, maybe white with sponging, or black, or razzleberry?

Stamps: Elements of Style; Card stock: Rich Razzleberry Textured Card stock, Cottage Wall DSP, Whisper White, Basic Black, Certainly Celery; Ink: Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink; Accessories: Big Shot, Oval Scallop Frame Bigz Die, Scallop Edge Punch, Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, 1/2 Pearl (Pretties Bulk Kit), Dimensionals, Glue Dots.

Beautiful Spring Butterflies {Congratulations Card}

I love how this turned out so cheery and bright. The base is Chocolate Chip card stock, layered with Barely Banana.

The focal point of the card is the row of little butterflies mounted on color coordinated circles. I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the Big Shot to make them in 4 colors: Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, and Kiwi Kiss. Whenever I use the Beautiful Wings Embosslit, I save all the extra butterflies in a little ziploc baggie and when I need them, they’re ready to go.

I mounted each tiny butterfly on Whisper White punched out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. Then, I layered each white circle on the corresponding color, punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. Those are adhered to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

As for the sentiment, I stamped “congratulations” from Well Scripted in Chocolate Chip ink below the butterflies. I added a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock that I punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and adhered it behind the Whisper White layer.  Around the edges of the Whisper White, I paper pierced to give it definition. Finally, the Regal Rose 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon was tied around the White layer and adhered to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Shades of Spring Butterfly Card

This card sketch is perfect for showcasing designer series paper. The base is Chocolate Chip card stock, layered with Regal Rose. On top of that, I used Shades of Spring DSP in this awesome  print. I just love these flowers and colors! They also come in purples and greens too.

The butterflies were made using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the Big Shot in Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip and Barely Banana card stock. I layered them with Mini Glue Dots and attached them to a piece of Whisper White matted on Barely Banana and Chocolate chip. Around the 4 corners of the Whisper White, I stamped the filigree stamp from Chic Boutique in Chocolate chip ink.

To finish off the card, I tied Regal Rose 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the card in a knot. With my super Craft & Paper Scissors (which are not going to be used for paper ever!) I snipped the edges of the ribbon into points. They are so sharp and cut ribbon perfectly.

There is no sentiment on this card and honestly I couldn’t find a place to put one. A tiny tag hanging off the ribbon knot would probably be the best way to add a sentiment, but for now, I’m leaving it blank.
