I needed several small Thank You cards so I set out to see how quickly I could complete them. The goal was that the cards also had to have "Wow Power!" Remember, "Wow Power" is a project that can be completed by any one in a short amount of time and looks complex. I completed all of 5 of these cards in just under an hour! Wow....
The cards are completed on a 3 x 3 inch base. The pattern paper stripe is 1 x 3 inches and ink to paper distressed on the edges. There is a small 1 inch mat behind the flower that is also ink to paper distressed. The flower stamp is from a set called Aspirations. I stamped the solid flower image in VersaMark and colored the image with shimmer chalks. I used a few colors for shading. The chalk "sticks" to the VersaMark. I then stamped the chalked image with the corresponding line stamp to give the detail. After cutting the flower out, I adhered it with 3d Foam.
I love the Aspiration Stamp Set. It is so versatile and easy to use. The set contains flower stamps, tree branches, the sentiment "dream" and a great quote by Eleanor Roosevelt. You can see the image in the current Idea Book on my sidebar. I have used this set in the past to highlight ways to use the fun stamp. You can find that post here. I have another technique tip planned for the near future, too.
Five cards in under an hour...and with "Wow Power!" It doesn't get any better than that. For Now, Happy Crafting!
