It's a gray day here in Rochester, NY and only 29 degrees. A normal Spring for early April, but I sure wish the sunshine and warmth would hurry up, lol. I have been working on Spring cards to make waiting a little easier. I just got this beautiful new stamp set from Altenew's March release
Sweet Rose Bouquet I love it ! I Also Got the Hope Stamp set and a while back I purchased Create-a-Wreath-die set with these I created this card.
Pocketful-of-Sunshine-oval-set and Green-Fields-oval-set and for the stitched edge Stitched-rectangle-dies-by-kat-scrappiness.
I wanted something special for my Sister-in-Law's birthday and these stamps were perfect for that. I stamped the leaf stamp using only the lightest of the greens, so that I knew where I wanted the image to be. Then I stamped the 4 layers to complete the flowers and finished the leaves. Next I used the stitched rectangle die for the edge. I stamped the sentiment and cut the oval with the create a wreath die. I adhered the background on a 41/4" x51/2" yellow card, then using fun foam on the back of the wreath, I placed it so the stamped images matched, giving dimension to the wreath. The center image was then glued down to the card inside the wreath also matching the image. I took it a little farther by stamping the image on the inside, using only the lightest green and the lightest yellow. for the roses I used the 3rd layer of the stamps to get a very light partial image. That's it.
I will be adding this card to:
Time Out challenge #106 Altenew 4th Birthday
CAS-ual Fridays #196 Spring Fever
Mod Squad Simply Clean Challenge
SSS Wednesday Challenge-Happy Birthday
That's it for now, thanks for stopping by!
