Craftsulove Design Team - March Card #1

Morning everyone 💜

Today I'm sharing the first of my March Craftulove Design Team cards with you. This month I received a Pinkfresh Studios stamp set and Julie Hickey sentiment stamp set. I have to admit to being a little out of my comfort zone, as I'm more of stamp and colourist so as there was no colouring to do I was a little lost. But as the stamps are so beautiful it didn't take lost to be inspired. Anyhow I hope you like my final project. x

All the links to the specific Craftuslove products can be found below, and the link to the general store is here.

Here's What I Did
I trimmed down a piece white card on to 4¾" x 6¾". I stamped 3 sets of the branches in green ink along with some small flowers in yellow, pink and blue ink. Next I stamped the sentiments using black ink. TIP - To make it easy to layout the design I first stamped the flowers and leaves onto copier paper and loosely cut them out so I could decide on their placement.

When the ink was dry the stamped panel was attached to the front of a 5" x 7" top fold card blank. Using pink and lilac ink two of the larger flowers and two of the smaller flowers were stamped onto white card and fussy cut out. The flowers were then added to the card front using foam pads. One of the large flowers and one small were raised up higher than the other two by adding more foam pads, this was to give them extra dimension. To completed the card a few small gems and pearls were added.

Tip - If you find you get pooling with the stamps depending on the ink you use, rub them over with an eraser or with an light sandpaper like an emery board.
