Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Stampin’ Dreams June Blog Hop
Welcome to the monthly Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop. This month’s theme is Birthday. You are currently visiting Anna from the UK. I hope you enjoy my project.
For my project today I decided to use one of the new stamp sets called Accented Blooms to create a beautiful card for my bestie’s birthday.
Hello, Friend card dimensions:
- Granny Apple Green Cardstock: 11-6/8″ x 4-1/8″ scored in half at 5-7/8″ (29.7 x 10.5 cm scored in half at 14.8 cm)
- Whisper White regular cardstock two pieces measuring: 5-3/4″ x 4″ (14.5 cm x 10.2 cm)
- Whisper White regular cardstock for punching the shape
First, I scored the base so it’s ready. I took one of the Whisper White panels and adhered it inside of the card for a birthday wishes.
Next, I took a Gorgeous Grape ink pad, inked floral arrangement image from Accented Blooms Stamp Set and stamped it on my second panel.
I’ve used Granny Apple Green ink pad and I stamped ‘Hello’ sentiment on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched it with a coordinating Tailored Tag punch.
Next, from a Dragonfly Dreams stamp set I took a stamp that says “To my wonderful friend”, inked just the ‘friend’ word in Gorgeous Grape and stamped it just below the word ‘hello’. I adhered it to my panel using dimensionals and adhered the whole panel to the base.
Firstly, I wanted to leave it just as is, but then I decided I could add a little colour to my floral arrangement.
Using aqua painter, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape and few new in colors®, I watercoloured the image. And yes, you can watercolour on a regular Whisper White cardstock. You just need to be careful and use way less water. A bit of clear Wink of Stella finished off my card.
I really hope you enjoyed visiting my blog today and I would love to encourage you to hop along with us and see the rest of beautiful projects designed by amazing artists. Please be sure to continue to hop using the list below. You don’t want to miss any!
