Hi there, I hope you’re having a wonderful day!
Technique Tuesday is celebrating their July release with a blog hop and if you arrived from the Kira Ness’ blog, you’re right on track!
Today I’m sharing the first of several cards I made using the new Hello Hollyhocks stamp set and coordinating dies. This set is the latest in the Greenhouse Society collection which features a beautiful floral stamp set each month. You can even subscribe so you never miss out!
I started by stamping the Hollyhock image in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto a 4bar-sized piece Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock. I positioned the image in Misti, stamped, then rotated the cardstock 180 degrees and stamped again. I repositioned the stamp into on of the empty corners and then stamped, rotated, and stamped again for a symmetrically stamped background.
Then I used the Sending Love dies to die cut the sentiment out of another piece of Neenah. I replaced the fall out pieces into the negative cuts and used Post-it Tape to hold everything together so I could easily color over the sentiment. I used a rainbow of Copics to create a rainbow and then I carefully removed the two words and adhered them, slightly offset, to a second set of die cuts that I’d cut out of black cardstock.
To assemble the card, I adhered the sentiment to the background and then adhered the card front to an 4bar-sized card base.
Thanks so much for visiting! Your next stop is Ana Anderson!
