This week I used Ellen Hutson's Bold Blossom dies, a Unity Stamp Company stamp set (for the sentiment) and Stampin' Up! Cardstock and Ink. Yep.. I was all over the place this week!
I started with a 4 1/2 " 11' piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock scored at 5 1/2". My next layer was another piece of Thick Whisper White that had been embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder. Basic Gray Ink was sponged along the edges of the woodgrain layer before adhering to the base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I used my aqua painter and Mossy Meadow ink to make some splatters onto the woodgrain background. I cut out the Ellen Hutson Bold Blossoms using Mossy Meadow for the leaves and Melon Mambo for the flowers. After cutting them out, I sponged them with the coordinating ink to make them a bit darker. Once dried I glued the die cuts onto the same color cardstock that they were cut from and then cut them out with my paper snips. I adhered some with multipurpose glue and others with dimensionals. My sentiment from the Unity Bouquet Bunch of Thanks Itty Bitty Stamp Set was stamped with Melon Mambo onto an 1 1/2" wide piece of the Thick Whisper White. The Triple Banner Punch was used to banner cut the end. I used my bone folder to put a wave into the flag and then adhered to my card with glue dots. I added an button from the Home for Christmas Designer Button Collection and threaded it with some linen thread and made a couple of extra loops behind the button before adhering it with more glue dots. Last but not least I added three gorgeous Pretty Pink Posh Dew Drops that I received from my friend, Andrea Tracy-Tucker for my birthday! I love these and must buy more when I use them up!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings, Tina
