Friends are Like Flowers

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is sharing, "Flowers for Spring" projects. We stampers all have plenty of smaller images in our stash that can be used repetitively to create a custom background. That's just what I did on this card. Stamping only took a couple of minutes with an acrylic block, and then I kept my coloring simple too. My instructions are below.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
POPST03AFR: Flower Stamp Set
RS-F245: Friends add Color
DP111: Detail Black Embossing Powder
DCP1005: Fitted Frames Set A

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Pink Delight
Imagine: VersaMark Ink, VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black
Zig Clean Color Markers: Sweet Almond Pink (200), Emerald Green (048), Green (040)
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner, Foam Squares
Smooth pink cardstock, green cardstock
Directions:
1. Create the card base with smooth pink cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

2. Stamp the whimsical flower all over the front of the base with VersaFine Ink.

3. Loosely color the flowers with the Zig markers listed.

4. Die cut the Large "D" Fitted Frame out of green cardstock.

5. Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark Ink on to Pink Delight cardstock. You may want to stamp it twice because the cardstock is textured.

6. Sprinkle Detail Black Embossing Powder on to the stamped sentiment and heat set.

7. Die cut the sentiment with the Small "D" Fitted Frame.

8. Adhere the green fitted frame with the EZ Runner.

9. Adhere the sentiment layer with foam squares.

I'd love to make a set of this card in several colors to give as a gift to a teacher. Imagine getting a rainbow set of this cheerful card! It wouldn't take very long to make either. If you'd like to see more "Flowers for Spring," head on over to the Stampendous Blog. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
