I created this set of little mini 3x3 gift cards using images from the level 3 hostess set The More the Merrier. This is a really cute hostess set and I hope it makes you all want to host a workshop to get it.
The first card uses the row of cupcakes from the set and I just inked up one and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock, watercolored it in with the aqua painter and then layered it on Mambo Melon and then Chocolate Chip Cardstock. The card itself is Mambo Melon and has been run through the Big Shot with the little dot texture plate. The ribbon adds a little texture at the top.
The second card uses the row of pumpkins and again, I just inked up one and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock and watercolored it with the aqua painter. It was then layered on Only Orange and Basic Black circles. I added the white dots around the black layer with the White Gel Pen. The card is Only Orange with a strip of Basic Black on top and a layer on the back. The greeting is stamped in Basic Black and the ribbon is the gingham black ribbon.
The next card uses the fall/acorn stamp and is stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White cardstock and once again is watercolored with the Aqua Painter. The acorn is layered on a rust and then chocolate chip layer. The card is Really Rust and I stamped an image from the Sprinkles set in Versamark on the back. The designer paper comes from one of last year's sets of paper and is ripped before adding it to the card. The back layer of the card is Chocolate Chip cardstock.
The final card is the simplest of the bunch. It uses the row of birdies stamp from the set and again I just inked up one with Basic Black and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock. The image is watercolored with an Aqua Painter and then the circle is layered on a layer of Crushed Curry and a Real Red scallop circle. The card is Whisper White with a bottom layer of Crushed Curry that has been run through the Big Shot with the texture plate. The greeting was stamped in Basic Black.
This is a really versatile set with lots of different images that make it easy to make a set of cards like this.
