Even though there are sooo many neat products I could show today 'Spring' makes me think of flowers and gardening; hence my moniker 'Flowerbug'. And I haven't played with any flower stamps lately! So on to my projects .....
This is a one layer card but it doens't look like it does it? The colors just pop!
Here's the 'how to': I masked off the middle of the Whisper White card front with post-it notes and embossed a few of the flowers from the Secret Garden stamp set using white embossing powder. Then I sponged (burnished) both Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie ink all over it.
Next I stamped more flowers using Pumpkin Pie ink and then removed the post-its. Then I stamped one more flower on the upper left. I colored in a few flower centers with a black marker and added the greeting from Blooming with Kindness in Black ink.
Can you see the scored lines above and below the masked area? I like that extra little detail. I hope you like this simple yet WOW card!
Another easy to reproduce card for you. Are you wondering where I got the chevron patterned paper behind the punched White butterflies. It's actually a stamped image from the OH, Hello stamp set. I inked it in Tempting Turquoise and stamped onto White card stock and then punched out three 1 3/8" circle punched pieces.
To get those White butterfly circles, first punch out a butterfly from a scrap of White card stock. Then punch a 1 1/4" circle around it. Add pieces of dimensionals to pop it up.
Did you see the matching envelope?
I wanted to have a coordinating envelope for this card and thought our new Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate would be perfect. I scored it twice using one of the zig-zag patterns on it; just move the envelope slightly over 1/4" from the first scored line. Then I added two of the extra punched butterflies above it.
Thank you for stopping in today. Now you're off to see what Connie Babbert has to share with you!
