What kind of stamper are you? Are you a planner? Do you have a pretty good idea of what your project will look like when it's finished? I'm pretty much a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of stamper. I might have a general idea of what I'm looking for when I start a project but usually, the finished product is completely different when I'm finished. It's what I like about stamping though...I'm creating as I go! I know everybody's brain doesn't work that way and that's okay! As long as you're happy with your project in the end, that's the most important thing...and this project made me happy. *smile*
Step by Step
To complete this project, you'll need cardstocks cut to the following sizes:
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Chocolate Chip cardstock (card base)
4" x 5-1/4" Crumb Cake cardstock
Watercolor paper big enough for all flower and leaf images
1) Stamp all flower and leaf images using Basic Black ink onto Watercolor paper, leaving plenty of space in between images to use framelits to cut them out. Use an aqua painter to watercolor images using Calypso Coral, Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry, Delightful Dijon, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip pads. Use Big Shot and May Flowers Framelits to cut all pieces out.
2) Ink Hardwood background stamp with Chocolate Chip ink and stamp onto Crumb Cake cardstock. Adhere to Chocolate Chip card base. Lay out flowers and leaves to your liking and adhere (I used glue dots and Stampin' Dimensionals).
3) Add smallest Pearl Basic Jewels to centers of biggest flowers. Use the middle size White Perfect Accents on the centers of the yellow flowers, but remove the white backing so that the bubble is clear (adhere with a glue dot). Stamp sentiment in Basic Black ink in lower right corner.
These are the products I used for this project:
Until next time...happy stampin'!
