I used 2 different flower stalks from the FREE Flowering Fields Sale-A-Bration stamp set and stamped them in Archival Basic Gray ink. First I stamped the center flower, then the second one on each side. Then the butterfly from the same set. I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the images: Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon for the blossoms, Cool Cucumber for the leaves, Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron for the butterfly.
I layered the Whisper White brick panel onto some Watermelon Wonder, and then onto a Smoky Slate card base. After tying a bit of Smoky Slate Thick Baker’s Twine around the image panel, I popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals in the center.
Of course, it was only after I took the above picture that I noticed that my layers are crooked! Sigh. This card has no sentiment on the front, which makes it great for all kinds of occasions, from birthday to sympathy.
Tin of Cards for sale in the Weekly Deals!
The coordinating stamp set, Tin of Cards, is not included, but as you saw in yesterday’s post is a very versatile set to have in your collection. You will also need some inks…SU! wants you to use Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron and JetBlack StazOn, but in truth you could make very nice-looking cards with just the StazOn or other black ink (the StazOn is preferred because there are a few slick surfaces for you to stamp on).
If you would like to order this kit and come to my house to assemble it using my stamps and inks you would be more than welcome! This would be a great project to do with friends. Out-of-towners please give me a heads-up so I can make sure my guest room is ready for you, LOL!
