Celebrate good times, Come On!
I hope you now have that song stuck in your head, too!
We are carrying on in a wildly celebratory fashion over on the STAMPlorations blog, in honor of a 7th birthday bash! And you should join in because there is LOTS of inspiration and TONS of prizes! (Like over $150 in prizes).
Today, I made a doozy of a card. I'm just dipping my toe into the water of the slimline card craze... I'm still not sure I'm in love with them, but would love to know your thoughts? Are you a fan?
To make this long and luscious beauty, started by using a piece of patterned green paper and the Leaf Prints 4 ARTplorations Slimline Stencil.
I rubbed some green Faber Castell gelatos through the stencil, removed the stencil, and then smudged the gelatos with my fingers to smooth out the color.
Next, I stamped the In Bloom: Perfect Petunia stamp (I happen to love this stamp because it's makes such a big, bold statement on a card). I colored in the petunias using Indigo Ken Oliver Color Burst powders. I added some detailing using a white gel pen and then splattered the whole thing with Picket Fence Distress Spray Stains, because you all know how I feel about leaving anything too clean.
So that's my card! I hope you liked it and I hope you'll play along in the STAMPlorations celebration. If you do want to pick up anything from the STAMPstore, make sure you use STAMPGIRLBECCA for a 20% discount. :)
