I think I’m still giggling from last nights stamping club! I like blogging but I don’t know what I would do without my face to face time with my stampin’ friends. We laugh, we cry, we hug, then we laugh some more!
So today’s card share is inspired by my stampin’ friends. I started this card over a week ago and could not get it together… I had all the pieces, but nothing looked right. Last night, I pulled it together in less than 10 minutes.
It began (a week ago) with the idea of spring and daffodils, and I love the traditional white with yellow center daffodils. I embossed the image onto vellum cardstock and then flipped it over and sponged the white Craft ink onto the back using a Sponge Dauber (love those little things). The center was colored in with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.
Now … this takes a bit to dry so I was off to look for a background. I chose the daffodil and slate striped design from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series paper. Yes ladies, there’s that paper again! I then created the leaves by folding some scraps in half and then cutting a long skinny leaf that resembled a daffodil leaf.
Once my flower was dry, I wanted to add a bit more dimension to the white, so I added some additional white to the front with the “Stampin’ Chalk Marker”. Just bits of highlights, not too much.
After my stampin’ club members (friends) had gone home is when I pulled the card back out … I cut the center of another daffodil I had made, and added it to the one for my card. Daffodils have those beautiful trumpet centers and I just had to add it.
I chose my greeting, and it’s in honor of all my stampin’ friends “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people”… and hugs, they are a very short distance too 🙂
Thanks ladies for the inspiration, and I hope you all enjoyed today’s card share.
Give someone a smile today, make someone laugh or hug a friend and ….
Have an awesome day!
