I am incredibly lucky to be part of a monthly swap group full of extremely talented ladies and each month one card is chosen as the best card and this month’s card was so beautiful that I just have to share it with you…it would make a fabulous Mothers Day card…
This card was made by Stephanie Schultz and features stamps from the set Friends 24/7 and the wheel Friendly Words…to find details of these stamps including location in the catalog, prices and images please click HERE – this will take you to my brand new StampSearch feature where you can search for the title of a stamp set you are looking for OR you can search for a keyword such as ‘friend’ – StampSearch will then show you your stamp set or all of the available stamp sets containing the keyword you are looking for – for each item it will show you the image, price and where you can find it in the catalog – give it a try – it is fab!
Don’t you just love this card? Stephanie used the colors Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry which work so well together. To make the background she masked the center diamond shape which you can do simply with a piece of scrap paper and used the Friendly Words Jumbo Wheel and Rich Razzleberry ink and then used the flourish stamp from Friends 24/7 and Old Olive ink to stamp over it. She distressed the edges which you can do simply by running your scissors down the sides of the cardstock.
She stamped the center flower stamp using waterproof ink such as Stazon Black (pg 190) and color the image using Stampin Write Markers – you could also use Pastels or Watercolor Crayons and Blender Pens or an Aquapainter to achieve a more subtle look.
The ribbon is In Color Polka Dot ribbon that you can find on pg 182 and the piece of patterned paper is from the Cottage Wall pack on pg 160 – and she also added on a couple of little green rhinestones for a finishing touch…isn’t it beautiful?
