Hi everyone. Yesterday I had fun hanging out with my crafty girlfriends. We played in the art studio all afternoon and each made two cards. Here's my first one ... and it fits two challenges - Inspirational #2 - Photo Inspiration (see picture below) and Color Throwdown (CTD224 - Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, So Saffron). Love these colors ... definitely made me think of spring flowers.
Here's the photo inspiration:
Stamps: A Word for You (SU!)
Paper: White (C.C. Designs); Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, So Saffron (SU!); pale purple (unknown)
Ink: Basic Black, Regal Rose, So Saffron, Perfect Plum (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: Arched Madison Window die and Small Window Box die (Poppy Stamps), mini sun punch (Punch Bunch), Hydrangea Punch (Martha Stewart), Itty Bitty Flower punch (SU!), Leafy Branch die (C.C. Designs), Pine Branch punch (McGill), sponges, Stamp-a-ma-jig, stylus, mat, white gel pen, and glue
I die-cut three of the window dies and glued them together to create a thick die. I glued it to my card front and then glued down a few leafy branches and pine branches at the bottom before gluing on the window box. Then I added flowers, each which have been punched out, sponged on the edges to add depth and shaped with my stylus and mat. I added white dots to the centers of the pink flowers using my white gel pen.
Here's a close-up of the window and flower box:
