MFT June Release – Countdown Day 5

Hey everyone!

Thanks for joining me at the start of June release week for My Favorite Things!

NewReleaseCountdown_Day5

For Countdown Day 5, we’re showcasing the Watercolor Flowers Stamp set and co-ordinating dies, the Written in Watercolor Stamp set and the Zig Zag Stitched Circle, SquareRectangle and Oval STAX Die-Namics. Here’s my card:

I began by creating my floral panel by stamping the Watercolor Flowers with various shades of ink, starting in the top left hand corner and finishing in the bottom right. I then used the largest frame die from Blueprints 25 to trim the panel down to the same size as my card base.

I stamped a sentiment from Written in Watercolor with black dye ink and used the Pierced Fancy Flourish die (showcasing on Sunday!) to die-cut directly into the floral panel – I know, I did think twice before doing this in case my idea didn’t go to plan 😉

I die-cut the flourish out of some thicker cardstock a couple of times and then adhered all three layers together to create a thicker, more sturdier embellishment. Using double-sided tape, I adhered the floral panel to a white card base, and then inlaid the thicker embellishment back into place.

I went in with some clear Wink of Stella in all the centres of the flowers for a bit of sparkle, and added a few sequins to finish off.
