Bouquets of Joy

January 17, 2009

Boy I am glad it is the weekend. So much work to do during the week and this just one weekend I am looking forward to. Just want to relax and play with my stamps and not have to worry about work.

I got up bright and early this morning to finish off a card that I made using the new released stamps set from Crafty Secrets - Bouquets of Joy. This card was also made for the inspiration challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.

Started off by stamping the image of the cute little girl carrying a bouquet of flowers 3x on white cs with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Colored all 3 with Copic markers (Ijust love these markers). Then proceeded to cut out the flowers from 2 of the stamped images. These were mounted on top of the first image for dimension and then topped off with Liquid Embossing. Let this completely dry before doing anything else to it. In the meantime I prepared the background piece of the card. Paper used for the background and all the matting is from the Euphoria Paper Pad of BasicGrey. Used a corner punch for some of the corners of the different layers. Sentiment was stamped on white cs with Onyx Black Versafine and sponged around the edges with Grape Jelly Memento ink. This was matted on to a dp from the Euphoria collection. Added 2 designer brads from Basic Grey's Euphoria to the top ends of the sentiment panel. Once the first panel was dry, the corners were punched and the edges were sponged with Pearlescent Purple Brillance ink and matted to the green DP. For the finishing touches to the card, I added some ribbon and a heart pin.

Hope you all are enjoying all the new stamp sets. Can't wait to show you more stuff.
