I am always intimated about participating in My Favorite Things Color Throwdown Challenges, but the card below turned out so pretty that I decided to give it a try.
If you are like me, you see these amazing videos of new product and you just have to have it and then I don’t use it right away. I gave myself a challenge to use all of my floral stamps that I have not yet used. One of them was Hero Arts Flowers for You. This is a flower layering stamp set and I love the Altenew inks for this process because they are made to help you be successful in picking three colors that go well together.
I stamped the flowers on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with the ink colors listed below and then fussy cut them with scissors. I then cut a panel from the same cardstock with Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles and ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with the Sizzix Dotted Lattice Embossing Folder.
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Fancy Sayings and I forgot to stamp it prior to embossing the panel, but with the MISTI I was able to get a clean image by stamping a couple of times.
I arranged the flowers on the lower left corner of the panel and took a picture with my cell phone so that I could adhere them in the same pattern. I used Tombo Mono Multi Glue for all of them except the large blue and red flowers, which were adhered using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape. For added interest I used Stickles Tidings to create the flower centers and I love the sparkle.
The embossed panel was adhered to a top folding A2 Cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
