Hi friends! Happy Happy Friday! I hope your weather is wonderful and you have something fun planned this weekend! It IS Spring after all, and even though we did get a tad more snow last week (a weird random thing Mother Nature threw at us), our temps have been rising over the past few weeks and we’ve opened our windows several times to bring in the beautiful fresh air. We woke up to 41 degrees this morning and it’ll probably reach the low to mid 70s today! Update: It only reached 55 today with wind and rain! That’s okay, though, because we really need the moisture. I have a pretty card to share with you today that I created for Prickley Pear Stamps using their new Sketched Florals Lavender stamp set! OMGoodness, this stamp set is so pretty and what a delight it is to color… it only took two alcohol markers and a Pitt Artist pen!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with slightly narrower layering panels from Gold Foil cardstock and 80# Basis White cardstock. I stamped the Lavender image in black ink directly on the card base and again on the white cardstock panel. I colored four of the outermost flower spikes on the card base and the entire image on the white cardstock panel. I adhered the colored image to the gold foil panel and then to the card base lining up the flower spikes. I stamped the sentiment in black ink on a white cardstock scrap, trimmed it and adhered it across the bottom. The finishing touch was adding several gold drip drops. The owner has requested that we no longer finish the insides of our Prickley Pear Stamps samples, which feels weird to me but is a huge time-saver, so going forward I’ll be short one photo in my posts. ;)
And one more peek… I absolutely love how this one turned out! Such a gorgeous stamp set! And it does have a coordinating die which I don’t have (yet)!
