Good Monday morning! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day weekend. We kept it quite and low key as we had some major drama last week with what we hoped would be the latest addition to our furry 4-legged family. It was very hard for us but she cause Derek to have to go to Urgent Care and get a Tetanus shot and major antibiotics. Come to find out she had bonded with her foster family “dad” and she was content to go home with them. It was sad and some tears were shed, but she will most certainly be happier there.
Today is another of my January Card Class designs we made. I really was struck by the bold look of the dot cluster from the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set that Lee Conrey used on one of her cards. So I CAS’d her background stamping and for the large flower cluster I put a slightly different coloring variation then from my previous “fun fold” For You card (click here to see it). I love the striking quality this has at being Black & White as well as the coloring of the flowers. My stampers in class that love to color thoroughly enjoyed this card.
BASE: The base starts with Whisper White layered with Basic Black and Whisper White, which was stamped with the dot cluster from Birthday Blooms Stamp Set to create a nice background.
FOCAL POINT: The large flower cluster from Birthday Blooms Stamp Set was stamped onto Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The flowers were colored with Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and just a smidgen of Rose Red. The leaves were colored with Mossy Meadow. The Whisper White was layered onto Basic Black and popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also added just a touch of Clear Wink of Stella Glittter Pen to the center of the flower. Well….it did need some sparkle. Lol!
SENTIMENT: Finally, stamp “for you” also from the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set onto Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Punch the stamped Whisper White with a 1-3/8″ circle punch then the Basic Black with a 1-1/2″ circle punch. Layer these together then pop with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
