Polka Dot Sunny Meadow Card
Posted on June 16 2020
Hello, everyone! I'm keeping it playful today with a bold black stenciled background and some gorgeous florals from the Sunny Meadow Stamp Set from LDRS Creative. Sit back and enjoy!
This card is so simple to make, but really packs a punch with the fun black polka dot background and bright popped up florals on top. The Sunny Meadow Stamp Set is one of my favorites for happy cards. The flowers are so pretty and there are lots of cute coordinating images to go along with them! The flower I chose has three layers to stamp and the coordinating Sunny Meadow Die Set makes the petals pop off the page!
I stamped three flowers with three combos of ink. I started by using Soft Kisses, Banana Cream Pie, and Bali Blue for the first layer of the flowers. Then I lined up the second layer and stamped with Fandango, Dan-D-Lion, and Marina Madness. The third layer is the darkest and I stamped with Tickled Pink, Tangerine Dreams, and Tropical Sea. Once all the stamping was done it's time to break out the super fun Sunny Meadow Die Set. I first die cut each flower with the die that pops up the petals and then with the outline die so that I had three die cut flowers with an extra pop of wow!
I made a contrasting background using the Playful Patterns Stencil and Raven Hybrid Ink. I love this stencil so much! There are three different patterns to use and all you have to do is just shift the stencil to the side and keep inking until the panel is fully inked. If you've never blended with the Raven Hybrid Ink, you definitely should! It's so crisp and beautiful! And a bit of Extreme Clean Stamp Cleaner takes the ink right off the stencil when you're done!
I adhered the flowers to the card with liquid adhesive - careful to only add adhesive to the "flat" portions of the flower - not the parts that would be popped up. I finished off the card by stamping a sentiment from the Sunny Meadow Stamp Set onto a strip of cardstock and popped it up with foam. Thanks for joining me!
