Hello hoppers! I have the pleasure in being a stop on the “#Spread Joy Not Germs” blog hop initiated by Catherine Pooler and Alexandra of The Hedgehog Hollow. You should have arrived here from Kerys Sharrock’s blog, and your next stop is Wendy Nicola Jackson’s blog. If you ever get lost along the way, just stop by Catherine Pooler’s blog or The Hedgehog Hollow. There are lots of prizes to be given away so please read at the end of the blog post to see how you can participate and be eligible to win!
For my card today, I am showcasing the Pretty Posies stamp set and Posies fri-dies by CAS-ual Fridays stamps.
To begin, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.
I ink-blended an A2-size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock with some distress oxide inks. I adhered this panel on a white side-fold card base.
I die-cut some white card stock using a watercolor striped background coverplate and foam-mounted this piece on the colored background. I also adhered the flowers with foam and liquid adhesive.
I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink and added white dots in the center of the flowers using my Sakura gelli-roll pen. Here’s a closer look at the card:
The Pretty Posies stamp set is one of my favorites from CAS-ual Fridays. They are so easy to color. Here’s another look:
