Love in Bloom
Posted on February 23 2019
Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie on the blog today to share a card I created using LDRS Creative’s stamp set named, Love In Bloom. This is one of my favorite sets since florals never go out of style.
When I spend the time on layering sets, I like to make a bunch at a time. A trick I've found for them is to use a stamp positioner to help mass produce them by stamping on a square piece of white cardstock and rotate them to stamp out four of these florals.
I used Flesh hybrid ink for the first layer of my flower. I like it because it's light and since the second layer is dark, I want the lighter color to show through.
For this card, I'm stamping out 8 of these flowers. I used In Your Face Orange for the second layer, and then for the third layer of detail, I used the darkest color, Lipstick Jungle.
I used the same technique for the leaves and sometimes it helps to use a pencil to mark off each quadrant so you stay within the box when rotating. For the two layers, I used Key Lime Pie and Olive Branch.
Once I finished stamping out all my floral pieces, I fussy cut them out. I love how these images are really easy to cut out; there's nothing super detailed or difficult for cutting.
For the background, I wanted to use the same color scheme as the flowers and leaves. I used Olive Branch and In Your Face Orange with a blending brush to get a light blend on a piece of smooth cardstock.
Once I was done, I decided to add a bit of gold paint and splattered it lightly on the background. Although it isn't not super noticeable, it's really pretty when the light hits it.
I decided to use the smallest rectangle frame from the Scalloped Rectangle die so I could frame the sentiments with it. I chose two of them together and chose both of the inks from the leaf to stamp with. I went with a bit of an ombre look by adding Key Lime Pie on the top of the words and Olive Branch on the bottom.
For the flowers and leaves, I wanted to arrange them in a bunch on the bottom and with one above the sentiment. I added foam tape to the flowers to add dimension giving it an extra touch to it.
To finish off the card, I added some clear embellishments to the card and I adore how it turned out. I hope you enjoyed it too!
