Two Cards, One Basic Design

Hosts and guests at my July workshops made two cards. This is one of them made two different ways (some made the Melon Mambo card while the others made the Daffodil Delight card). The "With All My Heart" stamp set (W 118134, $17.95; C 118623, $13.95) provided all the images I needed.

Actually, one of the cards on page 132 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog was my inspiration for this design. The card above is the standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" size while the one below is 3"x6" (cut your card stock 6"x6", which would give you four cards from a 12"x12" piece of card stock).

I've used the same colors in both cards, although they are reversed: Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. I added Whisper White to the Melon Mambo card. The leaves are cut with the Big Shot using the Little Leaves Sizzlits die. The flower is stamped and then punched using the Fancy Flower Extra-Large punch (118073, $16.95). On the Melon Mambo card, we colored the "Friend" stamp with coordinating Stampin' Write Markers before stamping on Whisper White card stock and punching with the Scallop Oval Extra-Large punch (119856, $16.95). The center of the Melon Mambo flower is a Build-a-Brad (109128, $9.95 for 24). First we stamped the little flower on a scrap of Whisper White card stock, then punched it with the 1/2" Circle Small punch (119869, $5.95) and adhered it to the base of the Build-a-Brad before topping it with the adhesive acrylic bubble, included in the tin of Build-a-Brads. So simple, especially with the clear blocks. So much fun!
