Last week, I participated in a Blog Hop with other gals from my Fun n’ Crafty team of demonstrators (which you should totally join, by the way, with the $50 limited time starter kit deal. 😉 ) We all picked a project in the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up catalog and made our own version. This was a card I made for the hop but ended up not posting that day:
And this was the card I saw in the catalog that I was inspired by:
Obviously, I had a few differences, starting from the stamp set ; but that is because I didn’t own the stamp set in the picture. So instead I looked through my shelf of stamps and decided to grab my Too Kind set instead. It is the same idea, a solid image flower, just with different shapes. I also wanted to play with my new inks including the Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon.
I also thought my flowers needed a little something so I added a drop of Crystal Effects in the center of each flower. A little shiny center for each one!
I was asked recently when I showed this card in a class I was asked how I got the splatters on the card. In this case, I used the stamp set Gorgeous Grunge – really, it is the perfect set for little background touches!
