Springtime Impressions - GFS Extraordinary Blog Hop

Happy Birthday
Or Anniversary to GFS Bloggers!

I'm excited to be celebrating the ‘birth’ of a fun group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who get together each month to share projects and ideas with each other and with each other’s customers.  I am honored to be a part of this family and love sharing with you!

Some may see this card as busy, however, due to the muted tones I hope you will agree that it a soft subtle look.  Here’s what I did:

1)     The base is Thick Whisper White card stock (8.5” x 5.5”)
2)    The front is topped with a one of the subtle sheets from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP)  (5 3/8” x 4  1/8”)
3)    Cut 3 strips of the floral DSP (5 3/8” x 1 ¼”), then adhere to front of card using Stampin Dimensionals.
4)   Use the Big Shot to cut the large floral shape from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Die out of Whisper White card stock (cs)
5)    Use Stampin’ Write Markers or ink pads & sponges to color the design.
6)   Add scraps of card stock behind the above image to create the lighter colors.  You will need to fussy cut the shapes (sorry, but it’s worth it).
7)    Adhere the completed floral design to a piece of Whisper White cs then fussy cut again leaving a small outline.  This will help make the flower stand out from the DSP strips.
8)   Adhere the floral design over the DSP strips using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
9)   Use a VersaMark ink pad to stamp the sentiment of your choice (Shown from Painted Glass stamp set) onto Mellon Mambo cs. 

10) Heat emboss the sentiment using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and trim the card stock to the desired size (shown 1” x 2 ½”) and adhere to card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
11) Add Pearl Basic Jewels to flower center as desired.

This card is all about Dimension.  It makes the 'in person' card really stand out.  So use those Stampin' Dimensionals with abandon!
