Hello! CardMaker Magazine has teamed up today with Pretty Pink Posh for a super fun blog hop showcasing some of their awesome products. :) Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Rebecca Keppel's blog, but if you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click HERE.
One of my favorite things to do is look for ways to use stamps other than for their originally intended purpose. The flowers on this card were actually created by using the tiny vase image from the Friends Forever stamp set. A little repeat stamping in a circle and BOOM, now you have flowers. Lol, I love that! :)
To create my mini-card, I started by first using one of the edge dies from the Stitched Notes on the top and bottom of a piece of white cardstock. One of the sentiments from Friends Forever was then stamped in Versafine black ink onto the white die cut panel. Next, I stamped one of the fox images from Fox Friends in Versafine black ink onto watercolor paper, then heat set it with clear embossing powder. The image was then die cut and colored with Zig Clean Color markers and set aside to dry.
I then stamped the tiny vase outline image from Friends Forever in Versafine black ink onto white cardstock in small circles to create the flowers. Next, I went back and offset stamped the solid images onto the flowers before fussy cutting them out. The sentiment stamped panel was adhered to a sea glass cardstock card base (3.5x5") with foam tape, and the flowers were adhered on top. To finish up, I adhered the fox to the card front and embellished with silver enamel dots.
