I seem to have become hooked on the Wild About Flowers Stamp Set!
Tomorrow I'm going to start playing with new products!! But for today, another play with Wild About Flowers!
I've always loved cornflowers, I also love the other two flower stamps
in this set - does anybody know what flowers they are?
started my card with a base of Shimmery White Cardstock (CS), with a
layer of Sahara Sand CS and a top layer of Shimmery White CS.
stamped on the top layer using the flowery stamp from the Timeless
Textures Stamp Set, using Sahara Sand Ink, stamped off once.
I normally die cut my circles before stamping but on this occasion I stamped first.
decided that, because I was using quite a small circle, it would be
easier to make sure I had the flowers in the best position.
used Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and stems, Sky Blue for the
Cornflowers, Blushing Bride for the second flowers and Sweet Sugarplum
for the third flowers.
had chosen these colours as I was planning to use the butterfly design
from the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) but that idea
didn't work out!
die cut the circles using one of the circle dies from the Stitched
Shapes Framelits Dies.
Then I layered them on a Sahara Sand CS scalloped
circle that I'd die cut using one of the dies from the Layering Circle
I stamped the THANK YOU sentiment three times using Sahara Sand Ink on Shimmery White CS.
The sentiment is from the Swan Lake Stamp Set.
I punched the sentiments out using the Classic Label Punch but they were too long.
put the right hand side of the punched sentiment back into the punch from
the centre back and threaded the excess cardstock back in as far as I
needed and punched again.
Inside the card I inserted a layer of Sahara Sand CS with a top layer of Shimmery White CS.
I decorated the bottom of this layer using the flowery stamp I'd used on the front of the card.
As this was going to be the only decoration on this sheet, I didn't stamp off as I did for the front of the card.
That's about it for today. I hope you have a great weekend and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
