Have been a little bit quiet over the last few days, I had a Christmas/Holiday card Stamp Camp on Friday and Saturday – I spent most of Thursday preparing for it which included tying a bunch of ribbon bows!…. and completely forgot to write something for my blog.
I make a send a thank you ‘something’ to all who shop with me each month, to show my appreciation for their continued support ~ here is the August one.
The design is based on a card by Connie Stewart – I put my own spin on it though.
The Stamp Set is Awesomely Artistic, which is this months Stamp Set of the Month on-line class offering (there is still time to join – check out the tab at the top of the page)
Base card : 11 x 4 1/4 Crumb Cake ~ scored @ 5 1/2
Layer 1: 54 1/4 x 2 3/4 Blushing Bride
Ink colors ~ Blushing Bride and Tip Top Taupe
The flower image was hand coloured using Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Up! markers (which are all in the Subtles Marker Collection). All pieces were sponged with Tip Top Taupe ink before assembly.
The fern image was stamped in each corner with full strength ink then stamped again without inking to give a lighter tone. The ‘Best Wishes’ comes from the Petite Pairs stamp set which I then cut using the Bow Builder Punch.
I hope you enjoyed it – let me know your thoughts below …………
