The stamp set that I am using if the Lots of Lavender.  This is a 2 step stamp set that gives a water colour effect to the lavender.



I made 2 cards with this set and added some elements from some other sets.

Measurements card 1

To make this card I cut the layers as below - these are my standard way of cutting layers and they give 1/8th border all round.
  • I used some Tranquil Tide as my base - A4 cut in half and scored in half, this makes a C6 card 5 7/8th x 4 1/8th
  • I cut a mat in Very Vanilla cardstock just 1/4" smaller on each side - 5 5/8th x 3 7/8th
  • I cut a smaller mat in Very Vanilla - 2 1/2 x 4
  • Another mat in Fresh Fig  - 2 5/8 x 4 1/8
  • Finally another mat in  Tranquil Tide - 2 3/4 x 4 1/4




I love the way the layers really make the image pop.

Other sets used

To stamp the back ground and cut the decorative elements of this card I also used the Leaf stamp from Petal Palette and some dies from Petals and More Thinlits, one for the sentiment and the trellis effect for the back ground. 




I really like how the 2 step stamping on the Lot of Lavender sampler give a water colour look so it doesn't matter if you are not exact with your stamping. 


Measurements card 2

To make this card I cut the layers as below - again these are my standard way of cutting layers and they give 1/8th border all round.
  • I used some Fresh Fig  as my base - A4 cut in half and scored in half, this makes a C6 card 5 7/8th x 4 1/8th
  • I cut a mat in Tranquil Tide card stock just 1/4" smaller on each side - 5 5/8th x 3 7/8th
  • I cut some standard Very Vanilla 1/4" small on each side again -  5 3/8th x 3 5/8th
  • I also cut an oval in Very Vanilla using the largest over from the Stitched Framelits after I stamped with the Lots of Lavender stamp.


Other sets used

To give dimension to this card I decided to stamp behind the oval topper rather than add a mat. I used the Amazing You stamp set which is another Sale-A-Bration free set. I chose the semi circle sun rays (thats how I like to think of them) stamped in Tranquil Tide and to tie it all together I stamped the birthday sentiment from Picture Perfect Birthday. 



I hope you enjoyed these cards and like me loving the freebies from Stampin' Up! I will be back with more projects to hopefully inspire you. 

Bye for now
