*1. Cut your Blueberry Bushel card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
*2. Cut your Delightfully Detailed paper making the borders even-about 1/8″ wide. Attach to your card base by putting a thin line of Tombow Glue around the border edges. Watch This Video to learn how to use Laser-Cut Paper.
*3. Stamp your Flower in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock. Color with Watercolor Pencils: ~Stem and Leaves: Old Olive ~Daffodil Delight: Yellow part as shown. Sorry, I forgot what it is called. ~Pacific Point for the Flower & Petals. I colored a second darker layer at the flower tips. Color the lighter part of the flower petal first, then blend the darker part. ~Cut out with the coordinating Framelit or fussy cut.
*5. Stamp your sentiment on Whisper White cardstock with Blueberry Bushel ink. Punch out with the Pretty Label Punch.
*6. Cut a strip of Vellum 1″ x 5-1/2″. Punch one end with the Banner Triple Punch. Decide if you want to trim off the straight edge or not. Attach to card front with a strip of SNAIL on each long side edge.
*7. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of your Flower and sentiment. Lay out where you want them and attach. Your card is finished.
This card uses the NEW Humming Along stamp set and is a #SimpleStamping Card. It uses stamps, ink, and coloring. You can use your favorite coloring products – I used Stampin’ Blends Markers. Just make sure you choose Memento Tuxedo Black ink instead of StayzOn Jet Black. StayzOn ink smears when used with Blends.
This Stamp set is in the NEW Occasions Catalog which we can buy from on January 3, 2019.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Lay out your stamps where you want them on the card front. You can use the large Clear Block F to stamp all three stamps at once if you want. Watch This Video to learn the Stamping with Large Stamps technique. OR stamp each image separately.
~Stamp with Memento ink. 3. Color: Make sure and lay some grid or scratch paper under your cardstock when using Stampin’ Blends Markers. Also, make sure the card is open and laying flat so you don’t make marks on the inside of your card.
~Dark Daffodil-Yellow Pollen flower part
~Old Olive-leaves and stems. Make sure and color the stem inside the flower before coloring the flower. Flower Petals. Color one petal at a time for best blending results.
~Dark Rich Razzleberry: Use the Fine Tip to go over the lines coming from the center of the flower and to draw small circular lines along the flower petal outside edges.
~Light Rich Razzleberry: Color the whole petal, blending the dark circular lines until you can’t see a line and the color just goes for darker to lighter.
Repeat with each petal. Humming Bird. I think they are really brownish. But I was not in the mood for browns. Choose the colors you want. I will tell you what I used.
~Beak: Dark Pumpkin Pie-Thin Tip
~Heat & Body: Dark Flirty Flamingo
~Feathers-Wings and Back: Light Lovely Lipstick and Light Flirty Flamingo. Color along the lines at one edge with the Lovely Lipstick and blend with the Flirty Flamingo.
Your Card is finished.
