While I was at the Fun Stampers Journey Convention last month, I fell in love with the new techniques that we learned. Here is one of them.
Dauber the following colors in a loose circle using the Large Dauber Dowel (TO-0138) for all seven flowers on a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) cardstock: Rich Coral (IP-0052), Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027), Citrus Cooler (IP-0048), Beach Breeze (IP-0044), Lemon Grass (IP-0022), Lemon Drop Liquid Color (IP-0132), and Cool Pool Liquid Color (IP-0140).
Stamp seven flowers one on each color using Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) and the Cottage Bouquet Stamp Set (SS-0606). You can fussy cut them out or cut them out using the coordinating dies (DI-0475). [yes, this set does come in a bundle to save you some money – Cottage Bouquet Bundle – BD-0402].
Stamp the large Thank You sentiment from the Many Thanks (AT-0280) in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) onto a piece of Whip Cream cardstock (CS-0040). Fussy cut around the sentiment. On another piece of Whip Cream cardstock you will stamp the inside greeting in Black Licorice ink.
Fold the Oatmeal Cookie (CS-0023) card base in half. Take a small paper plate [like a dessert plate] and trace the front of the card base approximately 1″ from the right edge. Trim away the excess cardstock to create a curve card front.
Affix a Whip Cream piece of cardstock on the inside of your card. Using Foam Squares (AD-0085) pop up all seven flowers along the curved edge of the card front.
Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 & AD-0085), pop up the Thank you Sentiment.
Flick entire card front with Black Licorice Silk (IP-0143).
Affix Journey Sequins Special Celebration (AC-0115) to the front of the card using Journey Glaze (AD-0002).
Apply Journey Glaze (AD-0002) to the center of the flowers and then sprinkle on Journey Sparkle Cuts (AC-0151).
I love the look of this card.
May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
