Hello, Hello!!! Laurie here with my very first post for Ink Road Stamps!! I’m super honoured and excited to be a part of this incredible team! Lara releases some of the most heartwarming, beautiful and funny stamps, EVER! So, it was no surprise that I had to combine florals with a humorous sentiment!
I started by colouring one of the gorgeous floral images from the Bella Flora Stamp Set. I will give you 3 reasons why I adore this set: 1) The images are gorgeous…this is a given. 2) The images are huge! Large enough to be all you need on your card front. 3) Thick, bold lines. Not only is this striking but makes colouring a lot easier!! BONUS REASON: The sentiments and font!!
So after colouring, I fussy cut the image out. This wasn’t hard to do but let’s just say I’m really excited about the release of the Bella Flora Dies!! I wanted to add a bit of bright colour to the background so I used the stripe stamp from the Between The Lines Stamp Set . This is another versatile, must have set for your collection and you’ll be seeing me use it a lot!!
Now, how about that sentiment?? Isn’t it fantastic?! I, like many others, am a huge fan of Friends and am pretty sure I’ve seen every episode at least twice. It is such a classic. This sentiment comes from the The One With All The Stamps Stamp Set. I white heat embossed it on black cardstock for the boldness of it and to also bring in a little more black to the card.
Both the floral image and the sentiment were adhered with dimensional adhesive. A bit of glitter pen and Glossy Accents to the “berry/buds” portions of the florals and a few clear sequins finish off this card!
Thank you so much for stopping in today!! I loved making this card!
Until next time…
