I have been sooo busy lately!! I am hosting a Bridal shower for my future niece. My brother's girlfriend, Anita, is co-hosting. The shower is next weekend! Should be lots of fun! I have had a bit of time to make some fun cards..... Must have time for card making (aka therapy). LOL I made a set of floral cards in several color ways with stamp sets from A Muse Studios. Take a look.
Stamps: Just Because, Beautiful Botanicals 1 and 2, Friend to Friend - A Muse Studios;
Blue Skies Sentiment -Inkadinkadoo
Inks: Neutrals- Sahara Sand, Basic Gray, Bordering Blue, and red -Stampin' Up
Pinks and reds/Oranges - Distress Inks - Ranger
- Make A2 size cards from various CS
- On white CS, start stamping the background with the leaf stamp and the lightest ink
- Continue building the stamped scene by filling in around the leaves with the other floral stamps in the medium and dark intensity inks.
- Add the stamped piece to the card base adding layers if desired
- Add ribbons
- Stamp sentiments
