I've been having a lot of fun with the Fifth Avenue Floral set. It seems a lot of people are stamping the flowers in Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip (or Not Quite Navy, or Basic Black – just something dark). I stamped the flowers in Baja and Kiwi, then was going to layer a piece of vellum over top with the roses stamped in Chocolate Chip. Not so much. It was really messy. So – here's the vellum piece reworked. (I'll post the Baja/Kiwi one tomorrow.)
The hardest part about this card was figuring out how I wanted to attach the vellum. Mini Glue dots under the pearls seemed like a good idea. Seriously, though, those things are just like boogers, don't you think?? (Sorry if that's offensive….Living with 2 teenaged boys, a man and a huge, stinky dog makes it hard to have more sensitive feelings sometimes. I need an "adopt a girl" day.)
Here's the list of supplies for this one:
Stamp Sets: Fifth Avenue Floral, All Holidays
Ink: Chocolate Chip classic
Paper: Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Mellow Moss, Vellum card stock
Accessories: Mini Glue Dots, Pretties Kit, Large Oval/Scallop Oval/Wide Oval punches, Whisper White taffeta ribbon
Please take note of the bow. It's rare that I get one to look that good! Kudos and comments will be appreciated.
I'm going to play with the Manhatten Flower die and ink….kind of a "debossing/inking/embossing" thing. We'll see how that goes.
Have a wonderful weekend! Tomorrow's my Big Shot class and Donna's workshop, so it will be a busy day. I have the blogs ready to go, however, so I'm actually ahead of the game. For a change!
