When your life seems to be a bit unsettled, the best therapy is to sit down and stamp and that’s what I did this morning and after I finished the card, I truly felt 100% better and the card brought a smile to my lips.
I absolutely love Serene Silhouettes and even more so when I combined it with the Work of Art stamp set.
I started with a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock cut 4 1/4″ by 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. The second layer is a piece of Calypso Coral cut 5″ x 3 3/4″. To that I layered a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cut 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. I ran it through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.
The focal image is stamped on a scrap of Whisper White large enough to cut out the Oval Framelit (#4 with the smallest being #1). I stamped the background using the Work of Art brush stamp. I inked it up with Crisp Cantaloupe and stamped off once before applying it to the Whisper White. This is repeated 3 times.
The image from Serene Silhouettes was inked with Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz markers and then stamped over the background.
This was this run through using the Oval Framelit #4.
After adhering the Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypyso layers together, add some Calypso Coral twine (retired) around the middle. You can substitute the Calypso Coral with the Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Bakers Twine (#135636). Place dimensionals on the oval piece and adhere to the front of the card and then complete the tying of the twine by adding a Vintage Faceted Designer Button. Place a glue dot on the button to make sure it stays in place.
Complete the card with pearls – one in the centre of the button and three tiny ones in the centre of the blossoms.
Now if only the temperatures would only moderate, I would be feeling 110% better (shouldn’t complain I know, but it’s just too much heat for me). My apologies to all you sun worshippers.
