Good Thoughts

I think this has to be my favorite card from the July Make and take. It goes together pretty easily even though it looks time consuming.

  • Stamps: Too Kind
  • DSP: Smoky Slate
  • Card Stock: Soft Sky, Calypso Coral, Whisper White
  • Ink: Smoky Slate, Old Olive, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Soft Sky
  • Accessories: Stampin’ Spritzer, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Stampin’ Pierce Mat, Paper Piercing Tool, Silver Brads

To start on this one you need a 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” piece of Soft Sky card stock scored at 4-1/4”. Next cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 3-3/4” x 5”. Stamp the stem from Too Kind onto the left side of the card stock twice in Old Olive ink. Now stamp the larger flowers in Crisp Cantaloupe ink. Stamp the smaller flower images in Calypso Coral ink.

Now fill a Stampin’ Spritzer with water and about 20 drops of Soft Sky re-inker. Spritz this onto the right side of the stamped panel a couple times. Once your image panel is completely dry adhere a 1” x 5” piece of Smoky Slate Chevron DSP onto the bottom of the panel. Adhere this layer onto a 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” piece of Calypso Coral card stock.

Stamp the large flower image onto a scrap of Soft Sky card stock in Soft Sky ink. Now stamp the greeting on top of the flower in Smoky Slate ink. Cut out the greeting with the Apothecary Accents Framelits in your Big Shot. Use your Stampin’ Pierce Mat and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce a hole in each end of the label. Add a Silver Brad into each hole. Adhere the label onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Now adhere the image panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

That’s it! What do you think?
