Good Monday morning! We finally went to see Dead Pool on Friday. LOVED IT! Ryan Reynolds and his wit were amazing and funny. Even with it’s serious undertones the one liners were to die for (no pun intended – Lol!) Saturday morning I was going to jump in and work/play in my happy place. Lol! But, I hadn’t be able to clean up from my monthly card classes yet so I did. I took me about 45 minutes. Yes, my space does get to be a mess sometimes. Lol! I did feel good after I put everything away and cleaned up. [grin]
Today I wanted to share the first design, a clean and simple thank you, from my February Card Class featuring the Bordering Blooms stamp set. Yes, I did breakdown and color the images. Eek! I didn’t have to do much in the way of shading so it felt good. Who needs those adult coloring books when we have great stamp sets to color. Woohoo!
BASE: The base starts with Old Olive layered with Melon Mambo and Whisper White. Stamp the Whisper White with the “Floral” Bordering Blooms image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. [TIP: This is a photopolymer stamp and I was able to curve the stamp while placing onto the acrylic block.] The images were colored with Old Olive, Rose Red and Rich Razzleberry. [TIP: Wait to adhere the layers until the ribbon has been wrapped and taped to the back of the Melon Mambo layer.]
SENTIMENT: Die cut an Old Olive oval then punch 1/8″ holes on either side. Thread a length of ribbon through the oval. Adhere the oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals centered to stabilize, then wrap ribbon to backside and tape. Next stamp “thanks” from Cottage Greetings Stamp Set onto Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then die cut with smallest oval from the Framelits Ovals Collection dies. Finish by popping with Stampin’ dimensionals.
I hope you have a good Monday. Thank you for popping by today and until next time, Happy Stamping!
