Stampin' Birds Showcase Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

This is a card that I made for a colour challenge using old olive, petal pink and night of navy in the Pootlers Group. I have used my absolute favourite bundle from the new Mini Catalogue - the Art Gallery, I love everything about this suite, it is beautiful.


1 piece of petal pink card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of night of navy card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of basic white card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" for the inside and 1 piece 3 5/8" x 5 3/8" for the stamping and a scrap to stamp and cut out a flower and set of leaves
Petal pink ink
Old olive ink
Night of navy ink
Art Gallery stamp set
Floral Gallery dies
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply scored
Bone folder
Paper snips


On the long side score the petal pink card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make a landscape card base.

Adhere the night of navy mat to the card front leaving an equal border all around it.

Stamp the flower and the leaf image on a post it note to make a mask and cut it out.

Stamp the petal pink flower in a set of three across the bottom of the basic white, starting from the left, masking the previous one each time.  Stamp over the top using night of navy with the accent stamp, again masking the other images each time.

Stamp the leaves in the same way underneath the flowers, I have stamped off to make the colour lighter.

Stamp another flower and set of leaves on a scrap of basic white and die cut them.

Add dimensionals to the back of these die cuts and lay them over the centre flower on the stamping layer.  Trim off any of the leaves that overhang the edge.

Stamp a sentiment at the top right of the stamping layer and then adhere to the card front leaving an equal border.

Stamp another flower on the basic white layer for the inside of the card and adhere in place.

Why don't you have a go at a card like this, overlaying a stamped image to give some definition to an image.
