Guess What? Another Best of Flowers Card!

Hi Stampers!


I have one more Best of Flowers card for you.  This was also based on the Just Us Girls Sketch 1.  I really liked this sketch, as you may have guessed and tried to use it in several different ways!



Here's a close up of the embellishment panel I made.  It's so easy to make something like this!  I did all of my stamping first.  Then I punched the shape out and sponged around the edges.  Next, you put a lot of SNAIL all around the back perimeter of the stamped image.  Using the seam binding, you just stick the end on and then scrunch it back and forth around the shape.  It's not a perfectly symmetrical ruffle, but it's not meant to be.  Give it a try!  It works really well with Stampin' Up!'s 1/2" Seam Binding which comes in a TON of colors!  When stamping the flower background, I inked up the stamp and stamped off on scratch paper once before stamping my card stock.

Even More Best of Flowers

Hi Stampers!

Happy Friday!  I have an exciting weekend ahead of me.  Today after work I'm hitting the road, on my way to the Stampin' Up! regional event in Baltimore.  Yay!  I can't wait to see what project and ideas they have for us.  I always come home very inspired from these events.

Today I have another card featuring the Best of Flowers stamp set.  I'm also using the JUGS1 sketch again but in a different orientation.  I love sketches because you can either follow them exactly, or they can ben just something to kick start your inspiration.

Here's my card for today.  Isn't this a fun Spring color combo????  I colored the flower by inking up my sponge daubers and pouncing on the flower.  It's not perfect or colored in the lines, but it wasn't meant to be!  Try this technique out for yourself! 


 Here is the sketch again:

More Best of Flowers

Hi Stampers!
Well it's the middle of the week and I have decided to show you a card I made that is a little out of my element.  I am definitely a CAS stamper.  I love clean lines and a subtle use of embellishments, but when I saw this sketch from the Just Us Girls challenge blog, I had to go a little wild.  :-)

This is the sketch I saw...it's the first one they published!


And here is my take on it! I repositioned the elements on the sketch a bit to feel right for me.  I hope you like it!  FYI - The flower was colored by daubing with sponge daubers.  I thought it gave the flower kind of a tie dye effect.


Stampin' Supplies:
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Primrose Petals
Designer Series Paper: Print Poetry
Ink: Early Espresso, Primrose Petals, Daffodil Delight
Stamps: Best of Flowers, One in a Million
