Plug over he he

Back to the order of the day
Todays make Would be suitable for anyone wanting to tell someone that they love them
It could be mother to child, child to parent, Friend to Friend or Lover to Love of your life

And that is todays YIPPEE SKIPPEE card make
Partnered with Everything Eleanor Stamp Set

So begin with a 6 inch square (15cm x 15cm) Whisper White card blank
Trim a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to 13.5cms x 13.5 cms
Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 12.5cms x 12.5cms
Trim another piece of Whisper White cardstock to 12cms x 12cms

Take the 12cms x 12cms piece of Whisper White cardstock and 
get the flower stamp of your choice from the Everything Eleanor stamp set. Mount it on an acrylic block of a similar size (unless you are using wood mounted stamps)
Using Cherry Cobbler ink, randomly stamp the flower over the cardstock using first, second and third (possibly fourth) generation stamping (this just means stamping repeatedly without re-inking your stamp i.e. stamp once, twice three times or four times before re-inking the stamp) and creates tonal differences that add depth to the project.
Now Cherry Cobbler can take a while to dry as it is an intense ink - you are going to take advantage of this by getting out your Stampin Sponges, and blend the residual ink on the cardstock randomly so some parts are lighter than others. As a general rule the very edges of the card and the corners are darker than the rest.

Now you need to stamp that fab distressed label stamp from your Everything Eleanor stamp set, stamp it vertically and fairly centrally on top of the stamped panel you have just finished. Again use Cherry Cobbler ink.

On some scrap Whisper White cardstock, stamp 3 extra flowers in Cherry Cobbler. Cut these out by hand using your paper snips.

Now for the finishing touches
Stamp the 'I Freaking Love You!' stamp in Black Stazon ink.
Get out your BIG SHOT
Die cut this using the co-ordinating Apothecary Accents Die Set
Sponge the edges of the label and colour up the label too.
Punch some leaves from Old Olive cardstock using the Bird Builder punch
Layer the stamped 12cms x 12cms piece of cardstock onto the larger piece of Whisper White cardstock. 
Add a piece of Real Red or Cherry Cobbler ribbon
Layer this onto the Cherry Cobbler cardstock and mount onto the card blank
Add the cut flowers and punched leaves, mount the label with Stampin Dimensionals on the back, and mount on top of the stamped label
Add some basic rhinestones
And you are done

Happy Stamping
