Stampin' Up! has some wonderful products for making handmade cards quickly and easily, and Designer Cuts is my favorite. The intricate laser-cut cards are elegant as they are, and even more so with a little embellishing. I've shown you some samples in earlier posts for a Valentine and an All-Occasions Card.
I decided to get a little more playful with this card, so got out one of my favorite stamp sets, Creative Elements.
I'm on a Rich Razzleberry kick lately, but wanted to steer away from the easy choice of pink shades to go with it. Too many Valentines lately, I guess. So I went exploring for another color that would complement the rich brightness of Razzleberry, and think the Pool Party does just that.
I couldn't resist threading Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon through the cut-outs, and added some scalloped circles punched with one of the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch set. Basic Pearls added just the right accent without overpowering the design.
If you love giving handmade cards to friends and family, but don't always have the time, then Designer Cuts will help you get the job done in an instant! The set comes with 4 cards of each design, and Blushing Bride envelopes.
Creative Elements is a versatile set that I turn to frequently. I love to use the flourish as a background stamp, and the flowers are very impressive when embossed and cut out. And who can resist the butterflies! I showed you a vintage sample when the set first came out, and recently used the set for one of my Wisteria Wonder cards.
There are so many great images in this set, I haven't even used all of them yet. I think you'll find it a classic addition to your stamping studio that will keep you playing with the possibilities over and over!
