Hello stampin’ friends –
Hope you are all doing okay, on this first day of April. Today is going to be a very short blog post, and I am sorry for that, however I blew out my laptop last night and I’m creating this post through my phone.
If I can figure out how to add pictures and create a full blog I will do that today! My daughter is bringing over one of her old laptops today, if it works! Then I will post my card share later today.
Don’t stray too far away because I will be back posting more card shares as soon as I can.
Thank you so very much for stopping by today and hopefully I’ll be back up again shortly. Have yourself an awesome day. Linda
Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Have you been shopping lately and seen the “new” fashions? Hmmmm … Reminds me of the ’70’s with the big flowers and bright colors!! Whew … I’m not going back there again! lol However, it does look cute on a card!
Today I’ve got a card poppin’ with ’70’s style! I began with the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer paper and grabbed my Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. These cute little flowers are quick -n- easy to color in. Once done I took my colored paper and cut out the center using the Stitched Rectangle Dies! I want layer the pattern …
You can see the pattern is not really broken as it continues beyond the Bermuda Bay mat behind the cut out piece of designer paper. I believe this is called the “Eclipse” technique … or Spotlighting. What ever you call it, it’s a fun and easy technique to do.
Once layered, I wanted to bring the “flower” into the card. I tried to double the small daisy punch but it was still too big so I used the Small Bloom punch from the Sale-a-Bration catalog. Punch twice, sponge a little color on the edges, use a glue dot to secure the two pieces together … and then I used the top of an Aqua Painter to push into my flower so the edges would pop up! What was cool about that is it left a little dotted circle (not sure you can see from the pictures). Then I used a Faceted Gem in the center.
To finish off my card … My greeting comes from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp set, also from the Sale-a-Bration catalog. This stamp set actually coordinates with the Small Bloom Punch!! How fun is that.
