Good morning to all on this cold, blistery winter morning here in SW Ontario. Wind chills today to reach -23 C (-9F). Although it is cold, we did escape the freezing rain and snow that fell on other parts of Ontario and Eastern Canada. We just had a dusting of snow, but strong winds and a bit of snow which are to continue all week.
During my off time through the holidays, I managed to get several cards done - which I'm so happy about. So my plan is each week to do at least 2-3 new cards to keep myself ahead, and also keep notes of what supplies I used so when I do go to post the card at a later date I have the list of supplies I used to pass onto you.
The card I'm showing you today is made using a new set from Altenew called Painted Flowers. This set is a 3 step stamping - love these types of stamps - love the dimension you get.
I started by cutting a white panel to fit inside the embossed area. I then took some my ink pads - PTI - Aqua mist, & Hawaiian shores and rubbed them on my teflon mat, spritzed, then picked up the paint using an old tooth brush and flicked it onto my panel. I must of had some glitter ink on there previously because when you tilt the card you can see glitter sparkles - so pretty.
I then followed the 3 step process to stamp the flowers and leaves. I then added a couple of outline leaves to fill in some spaces as well as the 3 little dots from the set PTI - Life is beautiful.
I stamped an extra flower on some scrap white c/s and then cut it out and popped up over the other flowers. Used my silver krylon pen and edged the panel before adhering to the embossed panel.
To finish I added the sentiment which was stamped in black versafine, added some glitter to the flowers using my wink of stella clear pen, and then added some sequins. I kind of like just the one turquoise sequin mixed in with all the clear ones.
Okay, well that's it for today, off to get ready for work. Have yourself a wonderful week, my next card will be a Stamping Bella image - I'm going to participate in their challenge this week. Until next time....
