Friday's Card Share
Here is my today's project. I have GOT to work on making sure my card(s) are nice and straight before I take the picture! LOL!! Forgive me, but I hope you can get the general idea, be it a slightly 'crooked' one lol!!
I DO hope once you've looked at my card, you will take a bit of extra time and scroll down to my 'other' Friday post and read the wonderful and heartwarming story I shared. :)
OK now on with today's card. I call this card, "Joy" for obvious reasons...that's part of the stamped saying has on it :) I really had fun making this card. I like the color combination of navy/dark blue(tho it really doesn't look that dark in my photo) and golden yellow or sunshine yellow :) I used small white and blue brads as part of the decoration. The flower(s) stamp is a Two-Step stamping set called Wonderful Watercolors; # 113688. This is a very NICE set with 12 pieces altogether. For my 'base' flower, I just stamped it in Brilliant Blue Classic ink, which is found on page 154 of the Spring/Summer 2009 catalog in the bold brights section(top). That # is 100691. I then got a piece of white cardstock and stamped another flower w/out the stem/leaves(the flower and stem are 2 separate stamps) also in the Brilliant Blue ink and then colored the two flower centers with a pretty orange/yellow chalk in my Stampin' Pastels(page 152 and product #105542). On the 'raised' flower(I used a pop dot), I used my 'other' flower stamp(again in blue) to give it that two-step look. I just LOVE the look of two-step stampin'! :) I then cut out my single flower and after putting my card together like I wanted it(matts, brads, quote, etc), I then added the flower on top of the other flat stamped one and here is my results. OH and I used Brilliant Blue cardstock from bold brights(pg. 154 and product #106540) and the Yoyo Yellow cardstock from bold brights(pg. 154 and product #107018).
