Handmade Card Ideas for Gran

I am happy to share a blog with you today to show you a Handmade Card Ideas for Gran. I made this card for my boys to give to their Gran as she isn’t very well just now. It was relaxing to just play with no filming involved.

If you would like to purchase any supplies used today they can be found in my online store here: Shop Now.

My chosen colour theme is Bumbleebee, Mango Melody, Grey Granite and Whisper White. Paper used is also from the DSP In-Colour 6×6 pack.

I coloured my stamped images using the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Marker combo pack (Bumblebee ones not available).

My finishing touches was adding the reliable Wink of Stella.

Products Used

Dress up your projects with perfume, lipstick, and other fashion essentials in the Dressed to Impress Stamp Set. Make greeting cards to commemorate friendship, Mother’s Day, and more.

You can see in the image below the full range of stamps in this set. There are a total of 16 photopolymer stamps. Photopolymer stamps from Stampin’ Up! are clear stamps that make image placement easy, have just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and cling to clear blocks without slipping.

There is also a co-ordinating set of dies to make absolutely beautiful die cut bags and more.

Here are some more ideas for using these sets and mixing with some other products too. These product samples you can see were designed by Stampin’ Up! Designers at Head Office.
