Hey, it's Lynnea! Do you ever find yourself needing a quick set of cards? I like to give them as gifts to friends, teachers, family, etc. I used the new Orchid Stamp Set from LDRS Creative and whipped up this set of cards in about 30 minutes!
This set of cards was so simple to make, but I added little details along the way to step up the design. Remember that you can always add or take away as many details as you like. There are lots of ways to simplify this set of cards and make them even quicker to make!
I started by using the largest die from the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers to cut four panels of white cardstock. This is a small detail that just brings a little bit of life to the card. It's a step that can absolutely be skipped if you want, but I like the bit of interest.
I used my stamping platform and stamped the orchid and hummingbird from the Orchid 4x6 Stamp Set with Raven Hybrid Ink onto each of the four panels. My STAMPendable Stamping Tool came in handy to make sure I got clean, crisp stamping each time. I added some quick alcohol marker coloring using just two markers for each color. I color slowly, so I like to keep coloring simple when I'm mass producing a design.
Once my coloring was completed I used Raven Hybrid Ink to stamp the sentiments from the Orchid 4x6 Stamp Set. Here's another tip to step up your card! I wanted to make my sentiment stand out from the colored image, so I added LDRS Creative Clear Embossing Powder and quickly heat set the sentiments. This is another step that you could skip, but it really makes the sentiment pop!
There's only one last thing to do before I call these cards finished - add a bit of shimmer watercolor spatter! It's my favorite finishing touch and I couldn't let these cards go without a bit of sparkle! I flicked on some gold shimmer watercolor, added the panels to card bases, and these cards are done! Thanks so much for joining me! See you again soon!
