Hello everyone! It’s Amanda joining you today featuring this beautiful floral image – Love You Bunches. I had this idea pop in my head the other night when I was laying in bed and was so excited the next morning when I got up and put the flowers over the candy jar and could make it look like a vase instead!
I started by stamping and die cutting my candy jar from silver metallic cardstock. Since these flowers don’t have stems I wanted it to look like a solid vase and I thought the neutral silver would work well with whatever colors I chose for my flowers.
Next I stamped, colored and die cut my flowers from Love you Bunches and set it all aside to create my background. For this I cut a panel to 8.5x a scant bigger than 3.5 and used distress oxides on it – tumbled glass, peacock feathers, to blueprint sketch and spritzed it with water. I hit it with my heat gun to help it dry faster before die cutting it from the largest in the slimline series: scalloped card panels dies.
At this point I started assembling my card so that I could make final decisions on my sentiment. The inked panel is glued directly to my card base and then the flowers and candy jar are popped up with foam tape.
For finishing touches on this card I scattered fortune teller embellishments throughout the design and then loaded my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the flowers and the die cut happy.
Photos really don’t do the Wink of Stella justice. It’s sooooo cool to see it shimmer when it’s moved in the light. And I really love these iridescent embellishments playing off the colors in the card.
Trinity Stamps is starting up a monthly challenge today too! It’s a brand new, fun thing and I really hope you’ll play along. This month’s challenge is floral. Keep an eye out later this morning for all the details!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
