Just for you, one more mixed bunch stamped card! This one is a flower garden, complete with pretty leaves and grass!
The blog candy drawing is now closed, tomorrow I’ll be announcing two winners… best of luck to all of you, and thanks for all you’ve posted and done!
This card was a “just for fun” card I made after making all the leadership swaps. I liked the idea of punching out the Mixed Bunch stamp set centers and snipping along the edges to create dimension and an interesting element.
Basic Pearls Jewels were added to the centers of each flower, and Old Olive Scallop Dots ribbon was attached to 1/8” cut flower ‘stems’ using mini glue dots.
Three circle punches were used on this card, punching the stamped images to create different sized blossoms: 1-1/4”, 1” and 3/4” . This is the largest, 1-1/4” punch, which leaves a lot more white area around the blossom stamped image.
This is the 1” circle punched flower.. and you can see that instead of snipping a ‘v’ cut along the circle edges, I simply snipped directly into the circle. It didn’t seem to have enough contrast, so I added a few extra stripes of white using a white gel pen too.
A 1-1/4” x 4-1/4” strip of pear pizzazz card stock was snipped randomly at anywhere from 3/4” to 1” deep. To give it a more natural appearance, some of the sniped edges were also clipped off or angled. The edges were sponged with Pear Pizzazz ink to give a little more depth too.
January’s Just One ATC Swap Theme was “something blue”. Bashful Blue Designer series Paper, and the Up, Up & Away stamp set were used along with one of my favorite stamp sets “plant hope”. LOL.. the swap is due at the end of the month and I completely forgot about it until I received my partner’s cute little swap in the mail… YIKES! This one went postal the very next day! I should have added some gel pen snow to the trees since the recipient lives a lot further north than me (aka Florida).
Tomorrow I’ll be announcing the two blog candy winners, wish you luck! I’ll also be moving on to new stamp sets.. don’t want to bore you to death!
Hugs, and thanks so much for your kind comments and following, you truly bless my blogging life!
