I made two cards this afternoon for today's anniverary challenge at Papertrey Ink, which was to use a Year of Flowers stamp on a card. I don't own any of these stamps, but my friend, Susan, does, so I borrowed her Roses set for the challenge.
For my first card, I stamped the flower and leaves on rustic cream cardstock and fussy cut them out. I layered them over some Crate Paper patterned paper and stamped a sentiment from Lovely Layers. The buttons and twine finish it off.
This next card turned out very differently than what I first started out to make. I was planning on making a one layer card, but messed up the white space on my cardstock. So I cut out my blooms and layered them on some PTI patterned paper. I added a stamped sentiment and frame (from Pretty Peonies) and some buttons.
For my blooms, I heat embossed the stamped images with white embossing powder and used some PTI berry sorbet and limeade ice ink with a Tim Holtz blending tool to colour them in.
Thanks for looking!
