This morning I posted my video showing how I made the Baby Bear Card I shared with you on Monday.
After I’ve shown a card here, I often change the colour scheme when I make a video and that’s the case with this card.
I experimented with the Pink Pirouette before videoing and than did the Pool Party for the video.
I used Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake for the Baby Bear as opposed to Soft Suede and Crumb Cake I’d used for last Monday’s bear, because I was using two colours from the Subtles family and needed a softer colour for the bears.
For today’s card I used the Touches of Texture Stamp Set again.
I’m not sure what it is about this sprig of flowers but I find it really attractive!
I started my card with a base of Elegant Eggplant Cardstock, then a layer of Sweet Sugarplum and a top layer of Whisper White.
I used the Petal Burst Embossing Folder to dry emboss the top layer and then adhered all three together using Tombow.
Then I started to work on the image by stamping the long narrow lacy-like stamp three times vertically side by side.
I wanted the background to be quite feint so I used Sahara Sand Ink.
Using Archival Basic Grey Ink, I stamped the sprig of flowers onto the lacy-like background and coloured it with Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaroon Marker Pens.
I layered this onto a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock and then onto Elegant Eggplant.
Using Archival Basic Grey Ink, I stamped the Happy Birthday Sentiment from the Vertical Greetings Stamp Set onto a thin strip of Whisper White.
I layered this onto a strip of Sweet Sugarplum and then a strip of Elegant Eggplant.
I adhered this towards the left hand side towards the top, leaving the same amount of gap at the top as I did on the side.
The final step was adhering a bow I’d made using the Ruched Sweet Sugarplum Ribbon.
I used Tombow to attach it just above the top of the image.
That’s about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
