I was inspired by a Stampin' Up! 2021 Artisan, Martin Stone, and his absolutely beautiful card. I was short on time so I decided to CASE-it and take it down a notch (or two). Here I have a beginner card, casual crafter card, and an avid stamper card...I would say Martin's is an Artisan Avid Card!
For the casual card, I added a layer with the Subtle Embossing Folder to the base and a Stitched Shape - Square to the focal point image. The image was stamped in Memento ink and colored with Stampin' Blends. I LOVE how you can use different colors and blend them together so easily with the Blends!
I typically don't step up my cards this much. I used the new Subtles Designer Series Paper (that is only available now as one of the FREE five packs of paper included with a Starter Kit). I added the fun Stitched With Whimsy dies and fussy-cut the branch and flowers. The Epoxy Dots are just so cool to add to florals and greenery...they look like drops of water!
It's hard to come up with a project...we all need some kind of inspiration! I took an idea of a card I loved online and used the card map below to make my trio of cards. I hope you're inspired!
