Here is our latest blog post.
This card uses Phill’s Sentiment Cloud Stamps and Rubber Background Stamps, along with Sue Wilson Double Pierced Ovals, Orange Blossom Petals and Whimsical Leaves.
The Full Card
Stage 1 – cut out all the layers and die cut pieces needed as follows:
- Base Card – 21 x 15
- Layer 1 – 20.5cm x 14.5cm (inked)
- Layer 2 – 20cm x 14cm (embossed)
- Sue Wilson dies:
- Double Pierced Ovals Set A
- Orange Blossom Petals
- Whimsical Leaves
Stage 2 – choose two coordinating Distress Oxide Ink Colours. Our sample card uses Ripe Persimmon and Tea Dye. Using a Smoothie, ink the 1st layer and middle oval alternately with the two colours. Ink your flowers in the lightest of your two colours. On our cards we have also added colour to the leaves, but have kept it quite pale.
Stage 3 – choose a rubber background stamp and ink alternately with the two colours onto the largest oval, making sure you come in enough. Our sample card uses Leafy Background Stamp.
Stage 4 – Use the darkest ink colour to stamp the background stamp onto your flowers.
Stage 5 – choose a sentiment cloud and use one or two colours to stamp the smallest oval. Apply Clear embossing Powder if you want a shiny finish!
TIP – to get the sentiment in the right place we have inked the sentiment cloud stamp and pressed the oval layer down onto the stamp and rubbed it gently.
Stage 6 – assemble your layers and use foam tape and glitter where you wish!
