Today's card is all about colour. I fell in love with this dramatic paper and thought Summer Sun would really sing with it!
I had the idea of a vellum vase at the weekend when I was away, but couldn't think how I'd adhere it to the card invisibly. After experimenting for a while I found that if you cut thin strips of double sided tape to the shape required it is barely noticable. I do like the way you can see the 'stalks' through the vellum. The vase is cut with a 1 3/8" circle punch on the edge of the vellum to get a flat base, then run through a crimper. The stalks are thin strips of card stock and the flowers are made by layering two of the Boho Blossom punched flowers and fastening with a gold brad. The leaf is from the 2 step bird punch.
Stamps: Happy Moments (sentiment)
Ink: Night of Navy, More Mustard (to sponge the edges of the flowers)
Card stock: Old Olive, Summer Sun
Other: Boho Blossom, 1 3/8" circle and 2 step bird punches, Night of Navy designer series paper (hostess gift), gold brads, corner rounder, crimper (non-SU)
The Night of Navy designer series paper I've used today comes in a stack of different colours and is one of the gifts you can earn by hosting a Stampin' Up workshop. Hosting a workshop is simple - you invite friends and family round to your house, I show them how to make gorgeous cards and other items and then they get to play themselves! I've never known a dull Stampin Up workshop - everyone always has great fun!
I was introduced to paper crafting when I was invited to a Stampin' Up party and I am so pleased I was because it has brought such a lot of pleasure into my life. I'd love to come and host a workshop for you so why not check your diary and book a workshop with me today!
Hope to see you soon.
