Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! Just in time for Spring, we are embracing some (or all) of Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous greens for today’s hop. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
My “green” is a couple of different shades. The papers include Pool Party and Mossy Meadow. Green and flowers are a natural pairing.
The colors I used were all to showcase green and compliment the daisies. My first choice was this Textured Chic Designer Series Paper. When I made the card, it was still available and now sadly it is all gone. BUT….the Dry Brushed Specialty Designer Series Paper is just as gorgeous and is carrying over to the Online Exclusives! To say that I was happy on hearing this is putting it mildly. I did a Happy Dance!! And it has the same tones of green as does Textured Chic.
To showcase the flexibility of this DSP, I used Pool Party for the card base. Then used Mossy Meadow for the leaves. It is quite a bit darker, but still works and helps to make the leaves stand out. Mossy Meadow was also the sentiment color. The daisies are cut from White card stock, but needed some color. To compliment the gold of the DSP, I used a Blending Brush to add a bit of Lemon Lolly Ink on the top layers. And the centers are colored with Copper Clay Stampin’ Blends.
Stamps and Dies
The gorgeous Daisy bunch is from the Cheerful Daisies Bundle. This is a sneak peek of this bundle! I did not stamp the images, but only used the Dies on White card stock. There are two layers to each of the flowers. The base layer is smooth shapes of the entire bunch. Then each flower has a detailed layer to go on top. That is the layer that I added a touch of color too before adhering. They have wonderful detail! The Mossy Meadow Leaves are part of the die. But I cut off the white leaves and used a scrap of Mossy Meadow to die cut just the leaves. Then simply tucked them behind the flower.
The small and perfect little sentiment is not included in the Daisy set. But is from an unexpected stamp set. It is part of the Days to Remember set. I personally love this set. It is great for adding items to a journal or calendar. Plus it has sweet little sayings like this! And it is carrying over as well. Woohoo!
To add more texture to the front of the card, I added a strip of the Natural Finish Ribbon. This is pretty wide and makes a great grounding piece for a sentiment. Or like here, some added texture and color. For the Bling of this card, I went a little happy with spreading Butterflies around! I added several of the Brushed Brass Butterflies. Another great item that is carrying over! They are scattered on the flowers and the sentiment.
