really enjoyed creating today's Thank You card!
I used the single flower
from the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set for the inside of a card I made
When I posted it to my blog I made the comment that I was
thinking about colouring the image rather than leaving it as a stamped
I decided to do just that, and chose to use my Pear Pizzazz and Pink Pirouette
I decided to create two single flowers with stems and fussy cut them, leaving a narrow white edge around them.
laid them on a piece of cardstock so the stems crossed each other and
decided that's how I was going to make the card.
I also planned to add a
bow over the stems as the final touch.
As I looked at the main stamp in this set, I
decided to stamp it using Basic Black Archival Ink, onto a piece of
Shimmery White Cardstock (CS).
I started colouring the three smaller
flowers, fussy cut them, and arranged them with the two single flowers.
started my card with a base of Sahara Sand CS, with a layer of Shimmery
White CS and a top layer of Falling in Love Designer Series Paper
I selected the specific area of the DSP I used so I had complete flowers growing up from the base of the card.
cut smaller layers of Shimmery White and Sahara Sand CS for the centre
To give a background to the flowers I used the large background
stamp from the You've Got This Stamp Set.
I inked it using Sahara Sand
Ink, stamped off once, then stamped on the cardstock.
I attached all the
flowers using Dimensionals and arranged them like a small bouquet.
made a small bow using 1/4" Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and adhered it to
the stems using Tombow.
I used the same layers for the sentiment, which is from the Rose Wonder
Stamp Set, and stamped it in Basic Black Archival Ink.
took a piece of Shimmery White CS to adhere inside the card, and
stamped two of the sigle stem flowers at different heights, using Basic
Black Archival Ink.
This time I did decide to colour the images, and I'm
really pleased with the result.
As usual, all three stamp sets I've used are all being carried forward into the new annual catalogue which goes live on 1st June 2017.
I'll be sending the new catalogues out to all my customers next week. If you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and you're interested in buying Stampin' Up! products, I'll be happy to send you a catalogue.
Just email me your details to firstname.lastname@example.org

That's about it for today. I hope you have a super weekend. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
