Hi Friends,

I hope your day is going good! I am typing this while on my way to Millennium Park to go for a bike ride with my sweet hubby! Today is warm and a little overcast… not unusual for this near Lake Michigan. The sun is trying  to peek out! Nice day for a ride!

Well on to my card for today! This is a great card for a beginner stamper! All you need to invest in is the Southern Serenade stamp set (wood 145918/ clear 145921), two beautiful colors of ink pads – Lovely Lipstick (147140) and Lemon Lime Twist (147145)- and black (121045) and white (100730) card stock!

The Southern Serenade stamp set (wood 145918/ clear 145921) is very versatile. The set includes the sentiments: ‘Happy Birthday’, ‘Thank You’ and ‘I’m so Blessed to call You Friend’. The flowers and leaves are beautiful and look great stamped in one color or use Tuxedo Black Memento (132708) ink so you can color the flowers and leaves with your favorite Stampin’ Blends colors!

The lacy stamp makes a great background stamp in a light color or you can make your own decorative paper with a light or dark color. I really like this stamp set.

Card Directions

For today’s card I cut my Basic Black (121045) card base 4 1/4″ X 11″. I scored and folded it at 5 1/2″. I cut another piece of  Basic Black (121045) 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″.

i cut two pieces of  Whisper White (100730) card stock 4″ X 5 1/4″and  2 3/4″ X 4″. On my larger piece of Whisper White (100730), I stamped all around the edges with my lacy stamp from Southern Serenade (wood 145918/ clear 145921 ) and Lovely Lipstick ink (147140).

On the smaller Whisper White (100730), I stamped the thin border stamp all around the card stock edge using Lemon Lime Twist (147145) ink and then on the inside portion I stamped using the small flower and Lovely Lipstick ink (147140).

i layered my pieces together as shown and attached them together using Snail Adhesive (194332). I stamped my sentiment on to a scrap of Whisper White (100730) card stock with Lovely Lipstick (147140). Then I punched out my sentiment using my Pretty Label Punch (143715). I used a Stampin’ Sponge (141337) to sponge the edges of the label with Lemon Lime Twist ink (147145). I attached the label with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430). Easy Peasy!!

Hope you have a wonderful day and Happy Stampin’

I am a retired RN. I am also an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and owner of SunnyLu Card Designs. I love paper-crafts and strive to share this love with others through both businesses. Working with other Stampers in my Stampin' Up business is such a fine thing! I love all my customers both those whom are brand new to stamping or have been stamping for 20+ years! As a result of stamping for a bit, I have a wealth of beautiful, handmade greeting cards and gift card holders for your enjoyment. My hope is that each of you will give the gift of a hand made snail mailed card to a family member, friend or just someone who needs a lift. What a joy to receive something other than bills and junk mail in your mailbox!
