Vibrant Vases with the Rubber Band Background

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday! I wanted to jump in this morning and share with you the last card from Sunday's Facebook Live session. This one was created using the Rubber Band Technique. This really is fun. You actually create this fun background using rubber bands!
Get all the measurements and the supply list in the downloadable PDF. I've had a lot of fun playing with the Vibrant Vases stamp set. It has proved it self to be very versatile as it works with many different folds and techniques such as the Rubber Band background. To achieve this fun background, mask off the right side of the card panel and sponge on the color, in this case, I used Coastal Cabana. Then wrap at least 3 different widths of rubber bands around an acrylic block and ink it up and stamp onto the sponged area. I did this several times to achieve the look I wanted. Then remove the post it mask. Then proceed as usual to create your card.

Happy Stamping!

Twisted Gate Fold Featuring the Vibrant Vases

Hello and Happy Monday my friends! I'm so excited to have you stop by to see today's project which was also featured last night during my Facebook Live. If you didn't catch it, no problem, there's always replay. But, if you ever want to catch me live, stop by my Facebook page on Sunday evenings at 7 PM ET. We have lots of fun! Anyhoo, this card is so much fun to make and receive! It's a twisted gate fold and it is featuring my product pick for this week, Vibrant Vases.
I love how this card came together. It also features some of our shades of purple, including our new InColor, Purple Posy! Although, due to a quality control issue with the ink, this color pairs perfectly with Highland Heather (used here) as well as Gorgeous Grape and I just used my Purple Posy Stampin' Write Marker to stamp inside my flower petals using the huffing technique!

For a list of measurements and supplies, download the PDF below.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed today's card and choose to give it a try. And if you do, be sure to share your results with my over on my Facebook page, www.facebook.com/katrinaskreativeheart We love to see what you do!
Happy Stamping,
