Gumball Greetings Valentine’s Day

This card features the new Gumball Greetings stamp set which is available in the current January – June mini catalog. The stamp set has a coordinating die set, which I’ve showcased in my two prior posts. For this card, I decided to showcase just the stamp set. I’ve gone back to basics — stamping and coloring — for this card!

The card is an easel design, which is becoming one of my favorite. I just love how they stand up. The base is Real Red, the mat is Basic Black, and the card front is Basic White.

The entire gumball machine was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black. The dome was colored using Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends. The hearts were stamped in Real Red, with a coating of Wink of Stella. I scattered a few Red Rhinestones to add some bling and fill in some of the white space.

The bottom half of the gumball machine is also colored with Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends. I added some “antiquing” using the White Chalk Pen, as I did on the cap. The sentiment was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black, and the hearts in the bottom corner were stamped in Real Red. I also applied a layer of Wink of Stella on the sentiment and the corner hearts.

The inside of the card was lined with a piece of Basic White, with the sentiment stamped in Real Red.

It was a pleasure to get back to the basics with this card and just stamp and color. No die cutting; no punching; no fussy cutting — just the basics!
