Flower Card

Hello Everybody!

Over at House of Cards they are doing a photo inspired challenge, blog hop, and a DT call.  They have fantastic prizes and a great photo to design by.  It is at the end of this post.

Here is my card.  This is how I was inspired by the photo:

  • Flowers in the basket-flowers on the card
  • Numbers on the jars-I used translucent embossing paste (wendi vecchi) with the Cargo stencil (tim holtz) on the green layer of the background.  I used a grey and white stamp pad over the green paper to lighten it.
  • The green stems for the green layer of the background
  • If you look in the basket there is a yellow flower toward the right-the yellow ribbon was inspired by this.
The photo is great!  I used a piece of clear scraps for the sentiment.  And the sentiment is from an older set of Stampin Up stamps that I bought at a thrift store (scrore!).  The flower stamps are from Sparkle N Sprinkle with brads in the center.

To make the first layer of the background I applied this distress ink.  But it wasn't enough.  So I inked up this stamp from Tim Holtz (stampers anonymous) and rolled it onto the card base in different directions.  It's subtle but it gave this area little extra something.  :)

Here's the picture if you haven't already seen it.  There is still time to play, hop, and apply! :)

Until next time my friends...have a good evening! :)
