This was another one of the swap cards I received at the October demonstrator get together ....
Every month I have a Stress Free Stamp-A-Stack class. This is a fun class where the cards are fun to make, and usually have a technique or two to them. This card, and the following card I will post, were from my February class. I already posted THIS card a few days ago. The card above was hanging on my Inspiration Wall for a few months and it was getting a lot of attention. My customers "demanded" that I use it in one of my classes. Well, I aim to please, so I did! I got this card from DiAnne Hill who cased it from Diane Vander Galien. Thank you ladies, my customers LOVED it!
Stamps: Fabulous Florets, Gifts Of Kindness
Ink: VersaMark, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
Markers: Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz
Other: Flower Garden EF, Blender Pen, White Embossing Powder, sponges, Word Window Punch, Pumpkin Pie 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon
To do the bud on the leaf stamp:
1 - ink the entire stamp in Pear Pizzazz
2 - remove the ink on the bud part of the stamp with a Blender Pen
3 - add Daffodil Delight ink from the marker to the bud
4 - kiss a bit of Pumpkin Pie ink from the marker to the edge of the bud
I just love how this turns out. It reminds me of the colours in my wedding bouquet all those many, many years ago. I had Jack O'Lantern Gladiolas and some lovely yellow and orange roses. I think I will be using this technique again.
Happy Stampin' .....
