Hello, and welcome to Guneaux Designs! Today I have for you a card that features the current Stampin’ Up! (SU) Everything Eleanor Stamp Set.
I created this card to submit to a Splitcoaststampers Challenge, Ways To Use It, WT575, hosted by Sabrina (Cook22). The challenge simply was to think in threes! Thus, I added three flowers, three layers, and three Swarovski Crystals.
(This card was included in Splitcoaststampers Favorites of the Week ending March 20, 2016.)
I created the floral images by strategically placing them on my MISTI before stamping. (Love the MISTI!) After stamping the floral images onto the panel with SU inks, I used Copics to enhance the flowers and fill in the white spaces. After stamping the images onto the card stock, I stamped them onto a piece of Frog Tape to use as masks over the images before adding the stems. I used the swirly stamp from the SU Everything Eleanor Stamp Set to create the stems for the flowers.
As for the ribbon, I punched two slots near the bottom of the “stems” to thread the ribbon through. I threaded both ribbon ends through the slots on the front side, crisscrossed the ends on the back side, and threaded the ribbon ends through the back to the front. That gives the appearance of a ribbon being tied into a knot.
After finishing my panel, I spritzed Hello Honey ink onto the Whisper White panel. The following are more photos. I didn’t add a sentiment on the card front, but inside the message is “Thinking of You”!
