Hello! It has been a while since I last posted, lol! Been working on things and honestly there are just some days when I don't feel like making anything. But since I love playing along with Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches, I decided to get myself in gear and make something. In fact, I made two somethings, lol! First up is my card for CTD and FMS.
I love stamping... just plain old stamping with maybe a little die cutting. However, lately I have not been doing as much stamping as I would like. Lots of die cutting going on, but not much stamping. So, to remedy that I decided to pull out a beautiful stamp and die set from Stampin Up! called Hand-Penned Petals. Stampin Up! was one of the first stamp companies that I purchased from and I still love their products. I had to do a lot of trial and error to finally arrive at the shade of pink I wanted. I wanted a very soft pink and that was achieved by using my Memento Angel Pink ink pad. The green shades are supposed to be a spring like green and sage, but I think I used two colors that are too similar. What do you think? After doing all my stamping I die cut the image with the matching die. I then used a very old Spellbinders nestabilities square die to cut out the opening in the card. I backed the white panel with fog gray cardstock and adhered it to my card base. I then added the floral piece over the opening. I finished with a few sequins in colors that matched my inks.
