My Favorite Things - May Release Countdown Day 5

An exciting day as we begin the Countdown to the My Favorite Things May release that you can purchase May 4th at 10am EST!  My card today reveals a new stamp set called Freshly Picked Bouquet which has coordinating Die-namics of course and in the background I've used the new Punched Pattern Stencil.

To create my card I first used the stencil and very softly created an inked background using Distress Oxides.   The stencil was removed and the panel trimmed down to a square.  I mounted this to a slightly larger panel of Limelight cardstock and then this was then adhered to a 5 x 5 inch square white card base.

I stamped the floral image on to a panel of white Copic friendly cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed in white.  I used Copic markers to tone with the stencilled background to colour flowers, keeping it very airy and feminine.  I die cut the image, backed it with foam tape and applied it to the background.

I used the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics and a little more of the Limelight cardstock to create my sentiment which was stamped with the words 'Love You' one of the many lovely sentiments that come with the Bouquet stamp set.   I used Versamark Ink and again heat embossed in white, the sentiment was backed with foam tape and then I tucked it in slightly behind the raised florals.

I completed the card with some Nuvo Drops embellishments.

  1. Very soft and feminine. Like how your background compliments the flowers in the bouquet.
