Here is the second project I’m sharing as part of this month’s Pootler’s Design Team. This week I’ve used the Balloon Builders stamp set to create flowers and foliage along with the fabulous new In Colours for 2016-18.
The card base is made from Emerald Envy card stock. I added a slightly smaller layer of Whisper White card stock which I stamped with the Hardwood stamp in Crumb Cake. The edges were then sponged in Crumb Cake.
I cut out the two largest labels from the Lots of Labels Framelits; one in Whisper White and the other in Crumb Cake. The sentiment, which is from the Love and Affection Stamp Set, was stamped in Dapper Denim. I also stamped some of the flowers and leaves from the same set using the new In Colours.
I used the Balloon Builders Stamp Set to create the large flowers and foliage. The shape of the leaves and colours of the flowers remind me a lot of Sweet Peas. The flower petals are stamped in Flirty Flaming, Peek-A-Boo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum ink and the leaves and stems in Emerald Envy. They were cut out and arranged around and just behind the sentiment. The sentiment and flowers were attached to the card using Dimensionals and I added a few Rhinestones to the centre of the flowers.
I really enjoyed making the flowers and ended up with far too many, so I decorated a 6 x 9 inch notebook using the same design, adding a little bit of Linen Thread at the top.
I hope you like this weeks Balloon Builder project. Be sure to check back next Thursday for project number 3!
