It’s summertime and we are enjoying lovely flowers from our gardens! Do you have a favorite summertime flower? As for me, there are so many lovely flowers that it’s difficult for me to pick just one!
For my card share today, I have a beautiful card that was inspired by a Pinterest Board of dozens of beautiful bowls.
The following is a photo of the bowl that inspired me.
I didn’t think I would like stamping flowers at the top of my card and leaving the bottom as blue card stock in order to replicate the bowl. Thus, I reversed the placement of the flowers.
I used both the Catherine Pooler Lovely Flowers stamp set and Stampin’ Up! retired Secret Garden stamp set to make the flowers. The larger flowers are from the Secret Garden Stamp Set, and the small blue ones are from the Catherine Pooler Lovely Flowers stamp set. Note that I added some color to the bigger flowers as I wanted to give them some dimension. I used three Copic Sketch Markers in the gray family, C00, C01, and C03, to create shading on the flowers. I also traced around the flowers with Copic Sketch Marker B91, which is a blue color. Then I added the small blue flowers from the Lovely Flowers stamp set
I used an Anna Griffin embossing folder of flowers to emboss the blue card stock and cut it with a die to form the wave that is similar to that on the bowl.
To finish the card, I added the sentiment, You’re Amazingly Amazing, which is from Catherine Pooler’s Lovely Flowers stamp set.
Lastly, I submitted this card to a Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge and it was selected as a Favorite of the Week ending July 24, 2016.
