This is actually the first card I made with the new products. Floral stamp sets are by far my favorite and I was immediately drawn to Spring Blooms. I love the mix of flowers and leaves included in the set, there seems to be endless possibilities on how the images can be combined.
Stamps: Spring Blooms, Strictly Sentiments 4 // Dies: Spring Blooms Dies // Ink: Sweet Nectar, Wild Mango , Silver Lining
I tend to use a lot of the same color schemes, especially when it comes to flowers. My thinking isn't so outside the box, until today! I went with a more modern and trendy combination by combining Wild Mango, Sweet Nectar and Silver Lining. I die cut several blooms and inked each in Wild Mango ink, then rolled the edges in Sweet Nectar before stamping down. This technique is a nice way to add interest to an image. The leaves were stamped twice in Silver Lining ink without reinking.
Next up is a more traditional color combo. Sweet Nectar is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.
Stamps: Spring Blooms, Strictly Sentiments 4, Borders & Backgrounds 4// Dies: Spring Blooms Dies // Cardstock: Oatmeal//Ink: Appletini, Sweet Nectar
I've framed this beautiful sentiment from Strictly Sentiments 4 with blooms above and below. The placement of the images and sequins help draw your eye right to the sentiment. I found that my stamping was a bit high on the panel, so I stamped one of the border images from Borders & Backgrounds 4 to the bottom. This definitely helped to even out the design.
Thanks for stopping by today. I'll have more to share with you tomorrow, so make sure to pop in again!!
