Hello Stampers ~ the Stampin’ Up Beautiful Bouquet Highlighted makes a pretty card.
Well I did not get to my video yesterday. It was a very busy day with all the scheduled events I had. Today I do not have any plans other than to try and work in my studio and get some more things organized. Barb has volunteered to help me so I am hoping to at least get a few more bins unloaded. If we get finished at a decent time I will take some time to work on some cards I need as well as my video. I have to get my card class cards designed and I need one more Christmas card for my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack. Hopefully I will be able to get one or two of the cards made.
You know I have a favorite watercolor card maker that creates some beautiful cards. Birgit Edblom creates gorgeous cards and I have used her ideas to recreate the cards using Stampin’ Up supplies. I saw this card posted and knew I had to make my version.
I began with a Whisper White card base and cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Whisper White also. Birgit’s card had the 3 white strips down the panel. I cut 3 strips of Whisper White card stock that measured 1/2″ x 5 1/4″. I glued them onto the smaller panel using my grid sheet to make sure the spacing was even. This panel was then attached to the card front. To address the circle image, I used the Layering Circle dies and cut a plain circle and then a larger scallop circle. I used the plain circle and Granny Apple Green ink to sponge on the color at the top. The bottom was sponged with Garden Green. I went back with my Granny Apple Green sponge and blended the 2 colors together. The spray from Beautiful Friendship and Garden Green were used to create the bottom stamping on the circle. The sentiment came from Beauty Abounds and was stamped using Garden Green also. The 2 circles were then layered and added to the card front using dimensionals. For my flower I chose to use the Beautiful Bouquet flower and stamped it in Real Red. The coordinating Bouquet Bunch dies were used to cut it out. I also used some Garden Green card stock to cut out one of the leaf stems. The stem was attached to the flower using glue dots. The flower was then added to the circle element using dimensionals. To finish off the flower a large rhinestone was added to the center. Here is my completed Stampin’ Up Beautiful Bouquet Highlighted creation.
