A New Take on Two Cards

Today I’m sharing several variations of cards I shared last month. Once I have a card design I like, I try to change it up a bit with different colors or Designer Series Paper.  Do you do that too?

I’m in love with the New Horizons Designer Series Paper. This paper makes is so easy to create an easy but pretty card!  For this first card, I used a different design than my original card which you can see here (you can find the measurements and supplies I used too). The only thing I did differently is that I used Blackberry Bliss cardstock but other than that, all the supplies and measurements are the same. 



These next two cards were made using the Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Friendly Hello.  This stamp set can be earned free during Sale-a-Bration with a $100 order and it includes a package of Friendly Hello 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. You can see the original card here (you also find a free tutorial) for measurements I used but I’ll include the supplies for these next two cards down below because I changed up what I used. 

This first card has a base of Fresh Freesia cardstock and I used Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper. I stamped the bird and sentiment using Memento Ink and then colored the bird and flowers using these Stampin’ Blends:  Balmy Blue (Light & Dark), Fresh Freesia (Light & Dark), Crumb Cake (Light), Daffodil Delight (Dark) and Mossy Meadow (Light).  I colored the Polished Dots using the Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blend. 


Friendly Hello


This next card has a base of Balmy Blue cardstock. I used Simply Marbleous 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper which is also a Sale-a-Bration gift you can choose with a $50 purchase. I colored the bird using the same Stampin’ Blends as I did for the card above.  I colored the Polished Dots using the Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend.
