When It Rains


Plant flowers! So here is my card for today. The image is another one from Hero Arts. It is called Thank You and comes as a cling stamp.

  1. It was stamped with Brillance Galaxy Gold on Neenah Solar White. It was painted with Twinkling H2O's Dreamsicle and Olive Vine. I layered the flowers by stamping just the areas I wanted and then cutting and mounting. The buds on top look like Dew Drops, but are really tiny glass vase gems. You get a huge bag of clear ones for $3-$4. Like the ones HERE. You can used them over color, like I did here, or your can painted them with Sharpies or Alcohol Inks. The bottom left hand buds are Glossy Accents. The middle of the flowers are Mark Richards Pearls.

  2. The next layer down was done using a Neenah Solar White 4.25"X5.5". The left- and right-hand top corners were embossed in the Cuttlebug using Anja Corner Template FE 6124. An Xact0-Knife was used to cut out the areas as shown. Next the bottom was punched using Fiskars All-A-Fleur Border Punch. It embosses a little area above the punched image.

  3. Between the corners and the bottom I used the Dotted Swiss tiny folder from Cuttlebug's Just My Type. It was just a perfect fit as you can see. It was then mounted on SU Almost Apricot I think.

  4. The front was mounted on that and then on a folded piece of Neenah Solar White. The ribbon is from Michael's and tied with the Bow-Easy.

Supplies:

  • Stamp - Hero Arts Thank You - CG115
  • Inks - Brilliance Galaxy Gold, Twinkling H2O's Dreamsicle and Olive Vine
  • Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and SU Almost Apricot
  • Accessories - Niji Waterbrush, Mark Richards 2 and 5mm pearls, Mini Clear Glass Gems, Anja Corner Template FE 6124, Fiskars All-A-Fleur Border Punch, Michaels Ribbon, Cuttlebug Just My Type Embossing Folders, Bow-Easy

Thanks for stamping by to look and share! I've been out of town and checking to make sure things post on the dates I chose. It's been a little tricky. LOLOL
