Welcome to our first Sweet Stampede Blog Hop! Sweet Stampede is my Erica Cerwin’s (my upline) team. Our blog hop will be the 3rd Tuesday of the month with an ever changing theme. Our theme will be based on our Creative Challenge that Erica gives us at our team meeting. The theme this time is Flowers!
My card uses some stamp sets from the annual catalog that have been sitting on my shelf not getting much attention. I decided I wanted to put some older sets to use since the annual catalog only has a few months left before the new one is released. There’s so much still to love in the annual. Check out my catalog tab if you’d like to see a copy.
My vision for the stamped area was to create a collage feel. So I used Butterfly Basics and Awesomely Artistic stamp sets. Both sets have a collage feel to all the images. I also used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Heartfelt Blooms, which you can get for free with a $50 order.
I used the ombre yellow from the Color Theory designer series paper pack. I stamped directly onto it. First I stamped the Heartfelt Blooms flower with Daffodil Delight just to give a little added dimension.
Then I stamped the flower from Butterly Basics in Fresh Fig. Then stamped the burlap texture strip with chocolate chip but stamped off first. Next I stamped the label in black which turned a greenish tone on the yellow. I added the “Friend” sentiment into the inside of the label to make it look like one stamped image.
I then ripped the edges of the paper for some texture. I layered it on a piece of the Petal Passion black and white striped designer series paper with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then adhered it down to a Thick Whisper White card base.
I am in love with this Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon!! In fact I was lucky enough to find this piece that I had left! I tied it around the whole front of the card and just made a double knot to keep it in place.
Time for Bling!! Wink of Stella on the flowers of the tall stemmed flowers. Plus the 3 rhinestones!
