sparkly Inspired by Nature
This was one of the new sets given to us at Convention- Inspired by Nature- such a beautiful stamp- I have so many color ideas in my head- can't wait to try them all- This was a little challenging with Kiwi regular dye ink pad on the stems then with pretty in pink and rose red craft stamping spot - dauber'ed to make the transition soft - then stamped in 1 fell swoop onto 3x6 " WW cardstock then embossed with iridescent ice- which only sticks to the craft ink and gives the flowers a sparkle- tie old olive 5/8" ribbon in a knot in the center and tape down the ends and use curly label stamp and punch for the corner accent onto pink pirouette paper with ridinghood red ink- mount with dimensionals. The base card is 8 1/2 x 6" ridinghood red cardstock scored at 3 1/2, then 7". The left over 1 1/2 " is folded over and taped on the sides to make a quickie gift or check enclosure for any occasion- I will have to do a tutorial on some of these things I have taught in class- but let me get a little better hang of this blog thing- the envelop is one of those plain white security envelopes from Target- less than $1 for 80 of them and fits this size card perfect- so stamped a little flower in the corner using regular dye ink in same colors.
