Stamp Set Showcase Week 3 (7)

Day 7 of this weeks Stamp Set Showcase


Those of you that read my blogpost yesterday will be pleased to know that we eventually recovered the missing stamps after an untimely drop of the stamp set with two stamps tumbling under my built in dressers in the workshop,

And yet again, Clothes Hangers came to the rescue ... and helped out my husband in retrieving my wayward stamps (Yeh!)

And you will notice that I am again featuring the Lovely Lace TIEF, as I just loved it when I used it for the first time yesterday.

I apologise if todays tutorial is lengthier than normal, but I promise it isn't complicated ... honest!

Begin by triming a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 15cms x 30cms. Score the long side at 15cms to make your card blank.
Trim a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock to 14.5cms x 14.5cms

Trim another piece of Whisper White cardstock to 14cms x 14cms

Using Memento Black ink to stamp the Corner Garden stamp to the bottom left of the Whisper White cardstock. Give the ink a few minutes to dry.
Next is your chance to colour in the stamp set better than me! Remember, start with the lightest colour of each blendability set, then the medium colour for highlights, and the darkest colour for contrast. Then go over the whole section you are working on with the lightest pen again to blend the colours together, Leave the cardstock to completely dry.

Whilst waiting for the above to dry, you can dry emboss a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock to 3.5cms x 14.5cms. Run this through your Big Shot or Texture Boutique. Adhere this to the right hand side of the coloured card panel.

Then stamp your choice of Label Love stamp, and stamp it in Mossy Green. ink. Punch it out using the Artisan Label Punch. Punch another two Artisan labels from Mossy Green cardstock. You will use the coloured cardstock to make the label for your sentiment. Cut one in half on the vertical, and the second on the horizontal. adhere the label pieces to the corresponding label pieces to the reverse of the stamped sentiment creating a layered label. App;y Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse, 

Now to give an extra dimension to your card. So again using Memento Ink for the stampin, stamp 3 butterflies from Papillpn Potpouri stamp set, and 3 smaller flowers from the Forever Florals stamp set. Colour both the butterflies and the extra flowers using Blendabilities pens. Apply Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse of the butterflies and flowers. Artistically place on top of your inked image (i.e. cotner garden).  Add some Basic Pearls to the butterflies and the middle of a few flowers. Use the Bird Builder Punch to punch out some leaves. Adhere the leaves to Corner Garden around the flowers ( use Tombow for this),

Adhere your Sentiment to the top right of the card,

Now you have a 3D card for someone special

Happy Stamping
