Really quick post today. I’m packing for my trip down South this weekend, doing laundry, grocery shopping, meeting to refinance the house, stopping at the DMV, you get the picture, lol. I’m busy!
I’m busy, but that didn’t stop my creative juices last night in my sleep. I drempt about this card, so I had to get it on paper/cardstock this morning, lol. I did not feel it warranted a tutorial since it is mostly straight stamping and punches. I will however talk you through it.
FYI, There is just a few short days in which to pick up the Build a Blossom stamp set (item #121923) and Blossoms Petals punch (121808) out of the Stampin’ Up Occasions Mini Catalog. You can shop my Stampin’ Up Web Site 24/7 and the products will be delivered straight to your door step from Stampin’ Up! Here is the link: http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/michellezindorf/
|Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Build a Blossom|
|Paper: Stampin’ Up! River Rock, Whisper White, Soft Suede & Early Espresso|
|Ink: Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo & Blushing Bride|
|Accessories: Stampin’ Up! Flourish Texture Plate, Big Shot, Blossoms Petal Punch, Gold Brads, Photo Corner Punch, Pretty in Pink ribbon|
I needed to create my main image panel background. I started by cutting a 4″ x 5″ River Rock panel and then smeared my Soft Suede ink pad on my Flouish Texture plate and ran the card stock through the Big Shot.
This is what you get. Cool huh?
I created the flowers by stamping the petals on Whisper White card stock using Blushing Bride ink. Punched them using the petal punch. Distressed the edges with Melon Mambo. Punched the leaves out of Soft Suede card stock using the Blossoms Petal punch also. Distressed them using Early Espresso ink. Cut the stems free hand out of Soft Suede card stock. Added Early Espresso and Soft Suede card stock panels. Added gold brads and Pretty in Pink ribbon.
There you have it.
The finished card measures 5″ x 6.5″.
May your weekend be filled with joy and love.
Until my next post. . . . . . . . . .
