Exciting to share Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember has officially started! The month long event with Simon Says Stamp has kicked off and I have a card to share with you using one of the newest release stamp set from STAMPtember called Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set.
This is a bigger 6×8 stamp set with a large floral cluster as well as individual leaves and flowers with stems like the one above. On my card above, I used one of the single flower with stem from the set and did no line pencil colouring using Faber Castell’s Polychromos. Then I used the individual leaves from the stamp set to stamp around the coloured image using tone on tone colours. Since the paper is grey, I used Fog ink to stamp the leaves. So there is some interest on the background but not too much that it interferes with the main image. I die cut this panel using the Wonky Stitched Rectangle die. I wanted to highlight the coloured image. I used two stitched circle die from Simon to die cut a frame using gold glitter cardstock and two white cardstock. Stacked and glued them all with gold glitter on top. I adhered this circle frame as shown so the focus is now on the coloured flower. For the sentiment, I white heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set on a strip of black cardstock and adhered using foam adhesive. The completed panel is adhered on white card base using foam adhesives and I finished the card with a scatter of few Nuvo white crystal drops.
This is my first time no line colouring using colour pencils on florals. I am happy with how this turned out. I cannot wait to colour the big cluster. All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.
Join me and other designers for huge party tomorrow!
