Floral Take Two

Hello everyone,

Today's card is the horizontal version of yesterday's card.

The printed paper is Stampin' Up Sweet Pea layered on Pretty In Pink and Chocolate Chip and highlighted with Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. The image is Stampin' Up Bordering on Romance, stamped in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla and heat embossed with Close To My Heart Cocoa embossing powder. The image was coloured with Stampin' Pastels then layered with Close To My Heart Liquid Glass. The sentiment is Annabelle Stamps Square Posies stamped in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla and layered on Pretty In Pink.  The embellishments are Close To My Heart Mocha Opaques.

It was a lot of fun to use some of the different images in this stamp set.  It is rather rare for me to stamp actual images on my cards so this was a nice change of pace.  A couple of caution notes.  The Liquid Glass takes some time to dry so this is not a quick card.  The Liquid Glass also 'buckles' the paper on which it is applied.  I placed the card in a heavy book to flatten it, which works quite well.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.

  1. I like this card. I'm like you. I don't stamp on the card itself very often. What I like about this cards is that the vertical strip is not tucked up against one side or the other, and not centered either. It is in the perfect spot.
