Hello and welcome to my blog! I have been playing with my new stamp set by STAMPlorations (designed by Becca Cruger) and came up with three different versions. Here they are together.

For the first one, I embossed one of the skinny frames of the Frames die set by Simon Says Stamp before stamping my image and sentiment using my Misti. Next, I flipped the flower stamp, so  that I could add colour using the solid side of my stamp. I started with Tiara ink (CP inks) and then added some Sauna (CP inks) for a bit of variation. For the stem, I used Lime Rickey (CP inks). I added some splatters using Tiara and Lime Rickey. Before adhering my panel flat to my card base, I reinforced the embossed lines using my score board and tool. To finish off, I added a few sequins (Studio Calico).

I'm linking up this card at:

Time Out - #133

SSS Wednesday - No designer paper

HLS CAS - One-layer card

For my second card, I switched out the sentiment and added the skinny die cut frame to the embossed impression.

For my third card, I switched to a lighter yellow for the flower (Limoncello and Tiara) and used an old Cuttlebug strip/folder to ground the image. I trimmed off a strip on the left of my panel before mounting it to my green card base. To finish off, I rounded the top right corner using my 1/4 inch corner chomper.

  6. Ooh Mar, nostalgie met deze boterbloemen....
    Ze herinneren me altijd aan vroeger,als ik ze zie. Voorjaar en langs de berm geplukt: op een vaasje gezet, wat ze helaas geen goed idee vinden.
    Het accent met de groene rand en zigzag steek springt er voor mij uit.
    Liefs, Ineke☀️
