Good morning friends~ Are you enjoying your summer? The weather here on the east coast has been perfect summer weather the last few weeks. It's been so wonderful being outdoors, I've hardly spent any time in my craft room at all. I was feeling kind of yucky yesterday so I spent the day at home and in my craft room. I was happy to be making cards again using this new Build-A-Flower Morning Glory set from Altenew.
I'm thrilled with this new set, the flower layers are so easy to line up! You can't tell in the picture but there's actually four layers to these flowers. I take pictures with my ipad and for the life of me, I can't capture any details at all. If anyone has any helpful suggestions, I'm all ears! Anyway, I stamped the leaves using two colors from the Warm Gray Mini Ink Cube Set and the flowers using Ballet Slippers Mini Ink Cube Set. Using the mini ink cube sets makes coloring layering quick and easy and the colors always coordinate perfectly.
I did some second generation stamping with the leaves along the left side of the card using Tropical Forest Mini Ink Cubes and a strip of glitter tape before adding these pretty morning glories on stems. The flowers were stamped using the blues from Secret Garden Mini Ink Cube Set. The little curly-cues are so fun! I also added some Nuvo dots for extra detail.
I'll be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
(Top Card) Color Throwdown ~ Pink, Gold, Black & White
Creative With Stamps ~ Stripes
Thanks for stopping by!
