A Perfect Day

Here is a quick and easy card for today.  This card uses the Bunch of Blossoms Bundle which includes a stamp set and punch.  I just love punches that match our stamps.  It is so easy to be able to stamp and punch and create!

For the flowers I discovered it was easiest to stamp the outline first which I stamped with Flirty Flamingo, then I stamped the solid with Pink Pirouette and finally the accent with Blushing Bride.

It seemed really dark at first, but as it dried, I think it came out beautifully.

I stamped one petal for each flower directly onto the Whisper White.  The other four I stamped onto scrap Whisper White and then punched them out with the punch.  One is glued directly down and the third petal is adhered with Dimensionals.

The banner is Vellum that I stamped with Flirty Flamingo and then heat embossed it with Clear Embossing powder.  Since the Vellum takes so long to dry, there was plenty of time to add the clear powder and heat set it.

The Vellum is 6" x 1 1/2" - leaving plenty of space to stamp and then fold the edge over to the back so no adhesive is used on the front to show through.  Although, since it looks like it is buckled, I may add a small glue dot under the Vellum and then place a jewel or pearl over the the glue dot.

  1. Pretty in pink plus! I like the Pear Pizazz with these colors. Well done on the colors! I really like the smokey gray mat too. The flowers are fun the way you made them and the colors on them look great. I like how you popped one petal up. I wonder if using some Tombow or the fine tip glue pen at the junction of the two stems would show through or even a tiny glue dot to keep the vellum from buckling? Otherwise you could add the candy dot or enamel shape over the glue dot. Whatever. Pretty card!

    1. Thanks Chris! Tiny glue dots, a drop of glue anything shows through the vellum. I've tried them all and just end up covering them with something. It could easily be covered with a rhinestone or candy dot.
