So, yesterday I shared a Product Review with you introducing the new Stampin' Up! Framelits Dies and today I'm sharing a card I created which features the Framelits Labels Collection. It is with much anticipation and excitement that I introduce you to the…
Apothecary Art Stamp Set
The Apothecary Art Stamp Set is new from the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog. This card was made for the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge #20 on January 4th. (I've been a slacker not posting my challenge cards in a timely matter or at all but my goal is to change that this year but with the start of the New Year, traveling and getting home followed by a mad dash to clean the house before my parents arrived, I didn't get around to writing my blog post.) I really love the look of "White-on-White" cards and new that is what I really wanted to accomplish with this card.
Now, at this time, I don't have a need for a Wedding card but hopefully I will in the future. To make this card, I dry embossed the background layer using the Finial Press Textured Embossing Folder which was layered on top of my Whisper White card base. Then I layered a piece of Organza Ribbon tied with a knot.
Next, I stamped my chosen image from the Apothecary Art Stamp Set and colored the flowers directly on the stamp with the Stampin' Write Markers using Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush and utilized the "huffing" technique or as I learned at the 2011 Stampin' Up! Convention to call it the "the Breathe of Life Technique." The image along with a border were cut out when I used the Framelits Dies from the Labels Collection. The banner was created using the Petal Cone Bigz L Die with the stamped sentiment from the new Loving Thoughts Stamp Set again found in the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog. Finally, all the pieces were layered together and placed on the card to create this elegant, Forever & Always card.
Tips and more from SunnyGirlScraps:
- When creating a "white-on-white" card, texture helps create interest along with depth.
- Use Dimensionals to help add additional depth to your layers.
- A little bit of color really pops out and creates an elegant card especially with the white space surrounding the image.
- Don't over embellish.
- To color directly on a stamp, use "paint brush" tip of the Stampin' Write Markers. After you are done coloring, gently "huff" then stamp your image.
