Hello there. I have a couple of cards to share to day – one of which has the above encouraging sentiment, and one for a birthday:
On the first card:
I chose the stamp and use all the layers from Altenew ‘Remember This‘ stamp set. Once the flower was stamped, I masked it off and stamped the stem and a couple of the buds from the same stamp set. The sentiment is from a couple of stamp sets – ‘you are precious‘ is from the Altenew set, and ‘always remember’ is from the Stampin Up stamp set. A one layer card including some masking – very CAS.
The second card:
This took a little planning and a lot of masking. The flowers were stamped first – the outline, then I only used the middle of the three layers – quite effective I feel.
Each flower was masked – using the same mask just moving it around – and I stamped some of the leaves from the same stamp set around and about to fill some gaps, and only using the lightest shade of ink from the set of four – again from Altenew:
I tried a couple of different ways for the sentiment using the same stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn. the first one I tried was by stamping the words in black on white card-stock, but I felt the words didn’t stand out enough – it wasn’t bold enough – so I just die cut the two words out of black card and layered three together.
I like the boldness of the sentiment against the very feminine background.
