Information on how to request your own copy of the catalog and this free note card following this blog.
Measurements: Polished Pink Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/2 x 4 inches; Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper: 2 x 5 1/2 inches.
The Art Gallery stamp is a Two-Step Stamp. There is an image that has less detail (left) and one that has more detail (right). It is usually easier to use one or the other first, but it does seem to be dependent on the particular stamp. For the Art Gallery flower I have found it easier to use the one on the left first.
This flower stamp works best if the first layer is light in color. This can be done by Stamping Off one time onto a scrap piece of paper. Then stamp onto the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Basic White CS using the Polished Pink ink (available May 4, 2021). Note: Be sure to use the Stampin’ Pierce mat under the clear Photopolymer stamps to get the best image.
Next stamp the second layer using the Polished Pink ink at full strength. Tip: To line up the images I find it easier to stand up so that I am directly over the stamped image.
To make the flower look even better, I stamped a third layer using Melon Mambo ink since it is a little darker than the Polished Pink ink. I just love the 3-D effect!
The last step for this flower is to stamp the stem and leaves in Evening Evergreen ink (available May 4, 2021).
Repeat the stamping as described above on to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS which will be the inside of this card.
Add the stem and leaves to the flower for the inside of the card.
Assembling the Card
Begin to assemble the card by adhering the inside panel to the inside of the Polished Pink CS card base.
Close the card. Adhere the Flirty Flamingo DSP to the card front. Note: I would prefer to use the Polished Pink DSP but that is not available even to Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators yet.
Complete the front of the card with the awesome 3-D flower you just stamped.
Viola! That is all there is to this fabulous Quick and Easy Art Gallery Note Card For Any Occasion. You can use any sentiment you wish. This could easily be a Mother’s Day card (coming up soon!). Other occasions that would work include: Birthday, Sympathy, Hello, Easter, Love & Friendship and Thank You to name a few.
