Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means??? It means I have a fabulous technique to share with you and that is doing the Smack Down Technique!!! Check this out!!!
I know I love flowers a lot a lot but this technique is amazing with these flowers. How can you not love this card?!?!?! I got this technique from fellow demonstrator – Mary McNeely! I love sharing ideas with others stampers!
This card starts with a Island Indigo card base. Then I took a piece of Whisper White (3-3/4″ x 5″) to create this masterpiece. Using the Flower Patch Stamp Set, I stamped down the largest flower (Rose Red Ink) down. Then without going back to the ink, smack down the stamp all around that original stamped flower. Just pound, pound, pound it all around. Then go back to the ink, stamp another flower and then smack down all around it. I did the next flower (pointy one) in Peekaboo Peach Ink and the smaller rounded petal flower in Island Indigo Ink. The leaves were done in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I’m telling you this card is so much fun to create and lets out any and all stress you might have. Stamping is such amazing therapy!
After stamping all the flowers, I layered this onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz (4″ x 5-1/4″). Next, I wrapped some Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon around it and tied it into a knot. I added this piece to my card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals so it would be nice a smooth with that ribbon! I finished off the card with a few White Perfect Accents in the middle of the large flowers!
For the greeting, I used the Suite Sentiments Stamp Set and stamped it onto Whisper White. I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch! Next, I punched out another one in Rose Red and cut it in half to layer a piece to the top and a piece to the bottom for that perfect layered look. I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
