I finished making all the July Customer Thank You Gifts
I need – so far – to be sending out next week. You may remember the July Gift is a
Freestanding Post-It Note Holder. I’ll now make sure I stay on top of
this as new orders come in, so I don’t finish up with a last minute
panic. Today, I shall be making my July Thank You cards, too!
had a little bit of time left over to create a card for today and
decided to use the Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set. This is a set I haven’t
had a play with yet and decided to start with the smallest flower
For the first attempt I used Blushing Bride Ink for all three
steps which didn’t create any real level of shading. For the second
attempt, I used Flirty Flamingo for the the top outline stamp which I
did first. Then I did the third stamp, the all over colour, in Blushing
Bride and lastly I used the second stamp, again in Blushing Bride. I was
really happy with the result.
a coordinating punch for this stamp set call the Blossom Builder Punch. I stamped my petals horizontally, with the top of the petal pointing to
the right, on a 1″ strip. This will help to keep the amount of wasted
cardstock to a minimum strip.
make today’s card I started with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock, with a
layer of Blushing Bride and a top layer of Crumb Cake. I stamped the
sentiment from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set at the bottom of the toper
using Soft Suede Ink. Then I placed the top layer inside the Petal Burst
Embossing Folder, leaving the bottom 1.5″ exposed, and cranked it
through the Big Shot.
stamped five petals as described above and punched them out. Using a
pencil, I gently curled the petals downwards and attached Glue Dots to
the ends. I also punched out a Whisper White circle using the half inch
circle punch. Then I attached the petals onto the half inch circle. I
stamped the sta flower centre in the same was as I did the flower and
adhered it in the centre of the petals using a Glue Dot. I finished off
by adding a large Pearl in the centre of the flower.
A clean, simple card. I wonder
what it would look like if I’d curled the petals up rather that down?
We’ll see! That’s about it for today.
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
