Our challenge this week over at Stamp With Us is on the theme of:
I've used the glorious Greenhouse Garden set for my card. This stamp set is currently helping the people of Haiti. Stampin' Up! are donating £1 from every set sold from now until 28 February to the Red Cross International Response Fund. So you can treat yourself and help out at the same time and you'd be half way to earning a free Sale-a-bration stamp set into the bargain. Email me to place your order.
Stamp sets: Greenhouse Garden, Seeing Spots
Cardstock: Barely Banana, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa
Punches: Eyelet Edge, 1-3/8" Circle, 1-1/4" Circle, 3/4" Circle
Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon: Very Vanilla
Other: Pretties Kit
The medium flower is stamped in Summer Sun and then the Stamp-a-ma-jig used to position the detail stamp over the top using Chocolate Chip. The same combination is then used for the dinky flower. All flowers are cut out and mounted on punched circles using dimensionals. Half-back pearls from the pretties kit are used for the flower centres. The Cocoa background is stamped using just the detail stamp with Cocoa ink on Cocoa card. As the card already has quite a lot of height from the raised flowers and pearls, I've stuck the circles flat to the border.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
