Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Sunday I shared a card with the Field of Flowers bundle and promised to share a “stepped up” version, so today I’d like to share a few tips & techniques you can used to step it up a bit! Here is Sunday’s card ….
The heartfelt greetings and beautiful images of meadows, flowers and a dragonfly allow you to express your feelings of friendship & love. It’s fun to pair with the Confetti Punch to create layered images of blossoms.
Today’s card is layered and I borrowed a sheet of the designer paper from the Forever Fern suite to begin. I added dimension in my greeting by stamping the “Thinking of you” on the Garden Green cardstock this time.
I wanted to change up the look of the designer paper, so I ran it through my embossing machine using the Subtle Embossing Folder … stunning!! It adds a subtle texture which really changed the look of the background … try it!
My card front is now smaller and the focal point on the card. I switched out the Daffodil Delight for the new In Color Bumblebee which gave me the opportunity to add the delightful ribbon that coordinates so nicely. No need to add rhinestones today … I did not want to detract from the overall look of the card.
If you look closely … you will see a “double layer” of stamping on the greens, this added depth and a slight change of color, even though I’m still using the Garden Green … I just didn’t re-ink my stamp. And “no” dragonflies on this card either.
It’s amazing what a little “steppin’ it up” can do for your card. Both are pretty … It all comes down to “your style of stamping”. Isn’t that beautiful?
Thank you so much for stopping back to visit with me today. Join me tomorrow as I share another look at all the new In Colors.
Have a beautiful day ~
