Delight in Everything
I have been surfing the internet blogging world the last few weeks and have stumbled across some wonderful stamping blogs. The card above was inspired by a very talented artist named Taylor. Check out her blog at Taylored Expressions. To create this card, I started with a standard card base in Breeze Cardstock and randomly stamped the flower bunch from the Delight in Everything stamp set. I then layered a strip of Let's Get Together B&T Duos onto Cocoa Cardstock and positioned that on my card base about 1/2" from the bottom. The technique I learned from Taylor's blog was the dimensional cirlce punch-out strip. I first punched my 1/2" circles from Buttercup Cardstock and then I positioned a Daisy White Cardstock strip behind (without adhering) and adhered flower circles that I punched from another sheet of LGT B&T Duos into the center of the holes. I added a 1/4" strip of Cocoa Cardstock to both sides of the Buttercup Cardstock and using my White Daisy Marker, added dots along the Cocoa Cardstock strips. I adhered the Daisy White Cardstock strip to the card and then layered the Buttercup Cardstock on top with foam strips to add dimension. Next, stamp your large flower images from the Delight in Everything stamp set (solid in Buttercup Ink and outline in Cranberry Ink) and cut out. Then stamp the smaller flower in Buttercup Ink and then stamp the single small flower over that in Cranberry Ink and cut out. Sandwich the two flowers together with a White Daisy Brad and adhere to the card front. I added a little Liquid Glass to the brad and sprinkle with Prisma Glitter. Stamp 'Best Wishes' from the All Occassion stamp set in Cocoa Ink in the lower right corner. Viola!
