Hello everyone, I have a couple of speedy cards for you today. They form part of a regular feature over on the Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog- Fifteen Minute Cards. We aim to create cards made in fifteen minutes or less and they can be clean and simple in style, or simply cards that are quick to make. These can be cards aimed at beginner stampers, or for someone who needs to make a card in a hurry, or maybe a batch of cards. We try to show that speedy can still be elegant and stylish, inspirational and have a wow factor. You do not always need to spend all day making a card. I cannot promise that these two cards deliver on everything that I have just written about, but they might give you some ideas to go off and try something quick for yourself.
To create the first card, I used some kraft card,
and a stamp that I have not inked up before, which I was surprised about, considering how long I had owned these stamps. I used
Versamark and white embossing powder to stamp the image from the Pretty Poppies
stamp set, before colouring it with Zig clean colour markers. I chose earthy
tones to tie in with the kraft background, and they happen to be my favourite colour palette. I added a sentiment from the
same stamp set, using Plum Archival Ink. Finally, I added a plummy
coloured card to mat the background, before adding it to a kraft card
blank. This will be a handy store cupboard card, as there is always an occasion to send a card like this to someone who needs cheering up.
Big Bold Background Leafy Brocade
stamp over part of it, using a Versafine Deep Lagoon Ink. I cut another strip
of the background, and stamped the large sentiment from the Birthday Words stamp set using the same ink. I edged both pieces of card with Memento Teal Zeal Ink, before attaching them to a white card blank. This card was so quick to make, these Big Bold Backgrounds cover the card so quickly, and the large sentiment finishes the card in an instant. I always have spare Brusho backgrounds left over from previous sessions, but this could just as easily have been created with a gelli plate background.
