Best of Flowers Thank You & an Upcoming New Demonstrator Special!!

I pulled out my Best of Flowers and Four You stamp sets to create a thank you card to share with you today.  I had lots of inspiration from some great challenges…The Paper Players #165, CAS(E) This Sketch 47 and Dynamic Duos #72.

Best of Flowers

I started by stamping the image from the Best of Flowers stamp set in Blushing Bride ink on a Blushing Bride panel, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement.  Then I placed the panel face down on my Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate and I embossed the wavy line image four times.

Then I flipped the panel back over and I inked the sentiment from the Four You stamp set first with VersaMark ink, then Primrose Petals ink.  I stamped the image on the panel, sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.

I cut two Primrose Petals flowers and one Blushing Bride flower with the Floral Fusion Sizzlits Die.  I embossed them with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and I adhered them together, then to the panel with Glue Dots.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Primrose Petals card stock with SNAIL, then to the Blushing Bride card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I finished the card front by adding a large pearl to the center of the flower and three small pearls under the sentiment.

I stamped the Best of Flowers images again inside the card in Blushing Bride and Primrose Petals inks.
