Fabulous Stamped cards by designer Lori Williams

Hi happy crafters.  I hope everyone is enjoying the summer.  Today card is one that leans towards the shabby chic and Hampton Arts stencils make it so simple to create.  Follow the steps below to make a card like this one for that special someone.   
Life Itself Is A Wonderful Adventure card by Lori Williams

Cut a base cream card stock A2 size.  Cut a sheet of patterned paper 4 x 5 ¼”.  Lay the stencil from the Vintologie Stamp and Stencil Set SC0648 over the patterned paper and rub over the top randomly with pink distress ink.  Stamp birds and cages randomly over the top of the stencil pattern.  Cut a doily die from pink paper.  Cut the die in two.  Layer boarder stickers  across the front and then add the doily to the top and the bottom of the cluster boarders as shown.  

Stamp sentiment in the center of a decorative oval die cut and ink around the edges.  Attach to the card using foam tape so you’ll add depth.  Finish off the card with flowers and leaves.  
Keep Calm And Wine On card by Lori Williams

I love all the “Keep Calm” slogans that are out and about right now and Hampton Art has some of the cutest stamps sets that include “ Keep Calm”.  When I saw this stamp set “Keep Calm and Wine On” I knew I had to make a card with that sentiment, LOL.  I love it.  This card includes just a few steps to make so follow along and make your own.  The first thing you’ll want to do is stamp the wine/liquor bottle stamp (Wine PS0820 (J) Block) onto cream colored cardstock in Pink Distress Ink.  Trim the image up in a neat rectangle and distress ink the edges with brown.  Now stamp the sentiment stamp ( LOL Laugh Out Loud Stamps SC0621) over the top of the bottles in black ink.  Mount the stamped image on cream card stock.  Cut out two more rectangles in varying sizes one in black and one patterned paper and mount again on cream colored card stock and ink the edges of the card stock.  Cut a base card A2 size and add patterned paper to the card 4 x 5 ¼”.  Arrange your rectangle and sentiment stamp on the card as shown and mount with foam tape.  Add three sparklets to the right top corner of the card as shown.  Tie a bow along the black rectangle as shown.  

To finish of the card and the bow stamp two wine glass stamps…color in the center with a bit of burgundy /pink ink and fussy cut out.  Glue down to the center of the bow as shown.
