With spring in the air it was hard not to play with floral stamps and bright inks to match. I used a floral background stamp on the bottom part of the card, I added two ink colours onto the stamp and misted with water before stamping. With the main flower I stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder then inked the flower without worrying about staying within the lines as the white embossing acts as a resist.
With a little help from my Big Shot and punches a baby shower card was made. I used the Stampin' Ups! Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Tim Holtz die cut and with a few other accessories to complete the card. This image is one of Stampin' Ups! retired stamp sets from a few years ago, I just omitted the square lines around the image.
Father's Day this weekend and I had a lot of things to do today, I was considering to buy a card and thought against it. I kept it simple and had the chance to use my retired Stampin' Up! stamp set and chalks-don't forget to spray fixative on your work this stops the chalk from rubbing off. The Tiny Tag punch that I used remained in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalogue and stamp set to match. I also had the chance to play with Tim Holtz Mini Rosette die - lots of fun and I found it easy to put the rosette together with the glue gun so girl dust off your glue guns because once you start making flowers it's hard to stop.
