A Little Lace SIP Card - Stamps Ink & Paper

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I made to send out to three of my Kinsmon Crafters Team members that just had their Anniversary being a Demonstrator.  So, I wanted to make them a little card to celebrate the occasion.  It took me a little while to figure out what set to use but I ended up using the A Little Lace Stamp Set.  I love this stamp set but haven't used it a lot so I thought it would be perfect for these Stampin' Anniversary Cards.  Here's a look at the card.  

I created this card so just using Stamps, Ink, and Paper.  This would be a great beginner crafter card and one that is easily mass produced because it is just stamps ink and paper.  I started out by cutting all the paper for the three cards.  My card base is Cinnamon Cider Cardstock cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4".  I then took a piece of Whisper White Cardstock that was cut at 3 3/4" x 5" and stamped the lace image onto it using the hinge technique and my Stamparatus using Cinnamon Cider Ink.  

I then attached it to my card base with Stampin' Seal Adhesive.  Next I stamped the floral image from the A Little Lace Stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut at 3" x 4".  I used my Wink of Stella to color the large flower.  This gave a little bit of a color wash to the flower and made it stand out just a little bit more.  I love the slight watercolor effect that this gives to the cards, and it adds a little more interest.  I attached this panel to a 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" piece of Cinnamon Cider Cardstock and popped the panel up on the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

You can see in the above picture how it adds dimension to the card.  To finish all the cards off I will add a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Cardstock to the inside so I can write my personal message to each of my team members that just celebrated their anniversary with the team and Stampin' Up!.  Let me go ahead and mention that if you spend anywhere close to $100 on your Stampin' Up! orders then you should join my team and start getting a discount on your orders as well as all the other benefits to being part of the Kinsmon Crafters and Stampin' Up! family.  You can read all about the benefits here.  You get $125 in products with your choice with free shipping on your starter kit for only $99.00.  It's the Ultimate Deal all the time!
