Stampin’ Up! Pressed Flowers Wonderful Friend Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pressed Flowers host exclusive stamp set from the upcoming 2018-19 Annual Catalog as well as the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set from the current catalog to create a clean and simple card to share with you today.

There are some amazing host exclusive stamp sets in the upcoming catalog!  Remember that you can get those stamp sets with your Stampin’ Rewards with an order or party over $150!

My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #338.

I started by coloring the flower image from the Pressed Flowers host exclusive stamp set (available June 1) with my Old Olive and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Markers and then, using a Stamp-a-ma-jig (retiring May 31) to help with placement, I stamped the image on the front of a Gray Granite card base (card stock available June 1).  I repeated that process with the second flower image and then colored and stamped the images two more times across the card front.

I inked the burlap image from the Pressed Flowers stamp set in Gray Granite ink (available June 1) stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it across the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams photopolymer stamp set in Old Olive ink on a panel of White Vellum and then set it aside to dry completely.  You can speed up the drying process with the level 1 setting on your Heat Tool.

Once the vellum was dry I used tiny touches of Multipurpose Liquid Glue under the letters to adhere the vellum panel to the card front.  I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the panel twice and tied a bow, then added one of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls (available in the Share What You Love Bundles now or individually on June 1) next to the bow to finish the card front.

I inked and stamped the images from the Pressed Flowers stamp set in the same manner described above to finish the inside of the card.
