First Post!

I decided to sit and play today!
This card worked up fairly fast and easy
because I kept it simple using
just one stamp set and the 2012-2014 In Color card stock and inks.

The process (the following taken with phone camera)
I wanted to make my own Designer Paper
so I gathered the colors I wanted to use,
the Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp Set
and a sponge.

I first sponged Gumball Green, Midnight Muse
and Primrose Petals onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
After getting the background the way I wanted
I started to stamp the cute little images in this set.
I did the birds first in Raspberry Ripple;
then the flowers in Midnight Muse;
and finally the leaves in Gumball Green.

Added the sentiment using the Decorative Label Punch
and stamping it in Midnight Muse.

I cut a strip of Primrose Petals and layered 
some Satin Stitched Ribbon in Midnight Blue on top.
Added the finished sentiment piece using dimensionals.

Fast and simple.

Of course, me being me, I had to take that last step 
of adding the butterfly complete with some rhinestones.

  3. Beautiful card. I just made a couple where I created my own background as well, although I did it directly onto the card front.

  4. Hi Hilary new follower from the bloghop. I am hoping to learn so thing from you! I just never got the hang of stamping? It always stamps uneven with the color? You should do a tutorial on how to stamp?
