Hello, everyone! It’s Laura here and I’m happy to host the May 2018 Inspiration Challenge!
This month, I selected a photo of one of my cards featuring the Floral Shadow Stamp Set from last year. There are so many great colors to choose from in this project, but we’ve decided to highlight the pink, aqua, and teal for this month’s challenge.
Here’s what I came up with using this photo as my inspiration:
For the floral images, I used the Garden Treasure Stamp Set. I stamped the blooms with Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, & Razzleberry inks. I also used a bit of Autumn Blaze Crisp Dye Ink for the stamen in the blooms. For the leaves, I used Bamboo & Parrot inks. I used the coordinating Garden Treasure Die to cut the floral images out and pop them up onto the ink–blended background.
For the sentiment, I used the Flower Arrangement Stamp Set. I stamped the “hello” and then used the coordinating Flower Arrangement Die to die cut the sentiment. I die cut four more white word die-cuts and adhered them together using spray adhesive to make a sturdy, dimensional word die–cut.
