Hello everyone! I am so happy to have regular crafty time again! Today’s card was made by combing a stamp set that gives several different looks and a sentiment that I just love and have wanted to use for awhile.
The stamp set is by @janesdoodles; it’s the Magnolia set. Depending on how you color them, the buds can look like tulips and the opened blossoms can look like crabapple blossoms or daisies or anything you want, they are open to the stampers interpretation. I think that is one of the best parts of the stamp.
The sentiment is wonderful and from @reverseconfetti. I like the font, the wording and the message. I am including a photo of the sentiment and the entire stamp set because they are all winners!
On to the card. I used my Prisma Color colored pencils to color the entire card. For the pink flowers, I used 937, 995, 947, 944, 994, 928 and 938 for the petals and the centers. For the yellow flowers, I used 1002, 917, 1095, 1032, 916 and 118.
For the red buds, I used 923, 1030, 924, 926, 1081 and 925. It took me a couple of tries to get the color I was looking for. Then for the greenery, I used 1090, 908, 1096, 912 and 109. Finally, for the background, I used 933 and 901 and blended with my white colored pencil.
To finish the card, I cut out the card panel using Simon Says Stamp’s Stitched Rectangle die. I stamped my Reverse Confetti sentiment on scrap vellum and heat embossed it with my WOW detail black embossing powder. I fussy cut the sentiment out and attached it to my card panel with Kooltak clear foam squares. For a little sparkle, I used Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Sequin mix.
I used my ATG to add adhesive to the back of my panel and attached it to a top fold card base.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy 4th to all of my fellow Americans! Have a great week to everyone else!
