Hi and welcome to the Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop for January. Thanks so much for hopping with us this month. The theme for our January Blog Hop is a Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch we were challenged to use.
I wanted to use something from the new January – April 2023 Mini Catalogue for my card today so I chose to use the lovely Fancy Flora Suite Collection.
Here’s what I created.
Blog Hop Card Details:
To make my card I started out with an A5 piece of Soft Succulent cardstock. I’ve scored and folded this in half before embossing the front using the Painted Textures 3D embossing folder. Next, I added a strip of the Fine Shimmer 12″ x 12″ paper in gold cut @ 145mm x 30mm. I then cut a piece of the Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ designer series paper @ 138mm x 75mm.
My next step was to stamp and die cut the images. I’ve used a Blending Brush to apply Calypso Coral ink to the solid flower images and stamped onto Basic White cardstock. The detail stamp was inked directly on the Calypso Coral inkpad, but stamped off once onto scrap before stamping over the solid image. The leaves are a mixture of first and second stamping using Soft Succulent inkpad.
I’ve adhered the leaves using glue onto the Fancy Flora designer series paper piece and the flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals. My sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Soft Succulent ink and die cut using the coordinating dies before mounting using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch was to add some of the Iridescent Pastel Gems in gold.
I also decorated the inside of the card using some of the offcut designer series paper and another of the stamped flora images.
I hope my card has inspired you in some way and thanks for visiting.
