Dandelion Wishes Quick & Easy Card Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a quick and easy card using the Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set from the 2019 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  The Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set allows you to send anyone a wish with a dandelion wish.  I love quick and easy cards because they are just that quick to produce and easy to create by anyone.  These are great card designs for any level crafter and they can recreate them and feel very accomplished.  Here's a look at today's card.

Tips & Tricks: 

As I mentioned this is actually a really quick and easy card and only took a few minutes to create.  I decided to stamp on Pool Party cardstock instead of Whisper White because I wanted to have a tone on tone (monochromatic) look to the card.  I stamped one of the large dandelions in the bottom corner because I wanted to have room for the seeds to have room to fly around the card.  By stamping the dandelions and the seeds in Pool Party and Pretty Peacock Classic Inks it it creates not only the pattern on the card front but also adds to the monochromatic color scheme.

I matted the card front onto a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock before adding it to the Crumb Cake card base.  My card base was cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  The mat was done at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  This added just a little broader around the 4 x 5 1/4 card front.  I flipped the color scheme for the sentiment and used Crumb Cake Ink to stamp the other dandelion image onto the oval and the Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon.  I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso Classic Ink over the Crumb Cake dandelion image.  I added the sentiment piece to a scalloped oval cut from some Pretty Peacock Cardstock.  I love the combination of teals and earth colors, they compliment each other so nicely, and just in case you are wondering they are compliments on the color wheel.  Which is part of the reasons they work so well together.

Once I had all the pieces stamped and ready it was time to put the card together.  I added the stamped ribbon, yes I stamped the ribbon to add a little color and texture to it, with a little snail adhesive and looped it into the adhesive.  I covered the adhesive with my sentiment piece which I added to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  To finish off the card I added a few Basic Rhinestones to the front of the card.  I placed one in the center of the dandelion and a couple of the sentiment in a triangle pattern to draw your attention.
