Friends Like You - Positive Thoughts Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have another Video Tutorial and fun little card for you.  Today, I am using the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set and the coordinating dies from the Coordinating Products release.  Remember that the Coordinating Products are while supplies last or until March 31, 2020.  I designed this card to be a fun Springtime card that's sure to send positive thoughts.  Positive thoughts are exactly what you get in the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set. Use the images and phrases in these stamps to create a bouquet of affirmation for someone you love.  Here's a look at today's project.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out my card today by cutting the Parisian Blossom Speciality Designer Series Paper to card front size.  And added it to the top folding card base that was made from a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  Next I cut the Very Vanilla piece using the stitched die from the coordinating die set.  You may be wondering why I picked Very Vanilla for some of the project and whisper white for the other.  I love the mixture of the two because it allows you to add colors that go with both.  Plus it adds a neutral to the white that some don't even think of and it allows the images on the white to stand out more against the vanilla.   


Once the stitched piece was cut and attached to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped the fern/foliage image from the stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink.  I also stamped the flower from the set twice full strength and once second generation.  By doing the second generation stamping I have a lighter shade of petal pink that allows for more life to the color combination while still keeping everything cohesive.  I then stamped the butterfly from the set in So Saffron.  Once this was done I used the Nature's Thoughts Die and cut each stamped image out.  


After all the die cutting and stamping I took the Very Vanilla piece and stamped the sentiment from the set in Petal Pink ink at the bottom.  I thought that by having the sentiment at the bottom of the card allowed a good place to ground the card and keep the focus on the card.  I then added the stamped images in a triangle pattern.  To finish off the card I used a few of the Champagne Rhinestones.
