Yesterday I shared a fun way to use the Lots of Lavender Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set which you can see here! Today, I’m coloring with the set!
I just love flowers and since this card doesn’t have a greeting on the front, it can be used for lots of occasions! What occasion would you use it for – Thinking of You, Sympathy, Birthday, Anniversary, etc?? Let me know in the comments below!
I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I took a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″) and embossed the left side with the New Petal Pair Embossing Folder. That little side border of texture is super fabulous!! Before adding this piece of the front of the card, I wrapped some Organza Ribbon around it and tied it into a knot!
For the focal point, I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the lavender bouquet from the Sale-A-Bration Lot of Lavender Stamp Set. It was stamped in Memento Black Ink since I used the Stampin’ Blends to color in the flowers! I used Rich Razzleberry for the lavender, Old Olive for the greenery, and Bermuda Bay for the ribbon! After coloring the flowers, I added this to a layer of Old Olive cardstock and then added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! This gives it some more texture and a smooth look over the ribbon and embossed portion. Adding the Metallic Enamel Shapes is optional for a little bling……or necessary if you need to cover up a boo boo. I won’t say why I added them! 😉 You can guess and let me know in the comments though!
I know I love all the flower stamps but this one is super fun because it’s FREE with Sale-A-Bration and it can be colored in or stamped for color with the other images in the set! The versatility of the set is just amazing!
Covering up a boo-boo? That is what I would have done. Haha.
A lot of embellishing is due to covering up a boo boo! 🙂 Nothing wrong with that! It makes the card look even more fabulous! ~Laura
Love this card and particularly since I got one in the mail today I can use. Thank you….I always look forward to getting these!
I’m glad you enjoyed it!!! ~Laura
