Hello everyone! Daisie here with an 8.5×11 scrapbook layout. I was super excited to use the new As You Wish stamp set so that was my focus this week.
I started with a metallic gunmetal grey cardstock (Anthracite from Cardstock Warehouse) for my background. It is a super thick and mostly smooth cardstock with a gorgeous shimmer.
I chose to use the sentiment from the stamp set that says “This is true love. You think this happens everyday?” I felt that was fitting for the photo of me and my husband on a date. The white ink (Hero Arts Unicorn) was perfect for repeat stamping around the photo to make the stamp really pop off the dark background. The floral stamps from the Chin Up Buttercup stamp set were used to create my embellishments. The flowers were stamped on a scrap of white cardstock using black Archival Ink. I used the Silhouette PixScan function to cut them out. That saved a lot of time and frustration! To color them in, I chose to use the Prima Tropicals watercolor set. I mixed colors to create some fun colors and dimension for the flowers!
To finish it off, I added some of the exclusive SpiegelMom Scraps sequins around the floral clusters. They really add the perfect amount of sparkle to every layout! I used a silver foam alpha to finish it off. This layout was incredibly fast and simple to make. The total time it took was 25 minutes (that included drying time for the flowers).
Thanks so much for visiting! See you again soon!
