I am finally back on track and now trying to play catch-up. I would love just to getting stamping and inking but all those other things that I haven't done keep calling me. I finally bought my flowers yesterday so will be getting outside to get dirt on my fingers.
As I haven't been able to do a lot of card making lately, I would like to share a Mother's Day card that I did.
Stamps: Loved Ones –
Paper: Naturals White, Whisper White, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Regals DSP Stack (Old Olive)
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot, Lattice Die, 3/4” Circle Punch, 1-1/2" Circle Punch, Build A Blossom Punch, Neutral Designer Buttons
The Sunflower petals are punched using the Build a Blossom punch - 16 large petals and 8 smaller petals. To get the curve on the petals, each petal was curved using the smallest file tool in the distressing kit and then manipulated a tad with my fingers. Each petal was sponged with Daffodil Delight ink.
A 1-1/2" circle formed the base of the sun flower. Attach the larger petals around the circle and then add a second layer overlapping the base petals. Finally, the smaller petals were added to the second layer.
The Sunflower's center was made using a circle punched from Early Espresso card stock, an Early Espresso Designer Button added and then attached to the flower.
Until next time...
