Thank you for stopping by to check my first Spring edition of Step-it-Up Sunday. Happy Father’s Day to all the father’s in our families. How are you celebrating? I’m cooking roast pork with the lot tonight and trying out a new lemon pie so I’ll see how that turns out.
What better way to start off spring than a card with flowers. I have used the Tropical Chic bundle for my project today The card base is 10cm x 20cm.
Add a layer of Whisper White cardstock on top of the Thick Whisper White cardstock base. Stamp sentiment in Blackberry Bliss.
Die cut squares from Stiched Framelits and Layering Squares. Stamp images in Blackberry Bliss and Grapefruit Grove and attach together. Attach these on top of Whisper White panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To step this card up, stamp the base of the card in Smoky Slate. Then add a panel of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper behind the 3 images.
Stamp the sentiment on a strip of Smoky Slate cardstock and insert each end into the Everyday Label punch to form the decorative edge,
Die cut the Whisper White cardstock and emboss with the Layered Leaves Embossing folder, The images have been stamped, die cut and attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To add extra depth to the flower and leaves I added an extra colour with sponge daubers. To get this look is very simple. Ink up the flower in Grapefruit Grove and then sponge around the edges in Poppy Parade. Ink up the leaves in Berry Burst and sponge around the edges in Blackberry Bliss. Stamp and die cut the images.
Then add some faceted dots to complete the card.
Hope you enjoy creating this card.
