Friends are flowers

Hi friends! I hope your week is going well and you’re staying healthy and creative! Absolutely no complaints here – I’ve gotten a lot of studio time in lately which makes me happy! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m thrilled to share my first project as a Trinity Stamps Ambassador! We haven’t gotten our official assignments yet but have been given the go-ahead to share whatever projects we want to create until the assignments roll in. So I created a pretty front step card (you know how I LOVE this fold!) featuring the Friends are Flowers stamp set and the coordinating Friends are Flowers die set! I sure do love me some gnomes and I’ve added several of their most adorable gnome stamps and dies to my stash!

I stamped the image from the Friends are Flowers stamp set on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers and cut it with the coordinating Friends are Flowers die set. I adhered the die cut image to a white stitched oval die cut, adding shimmer to the butterfly and popping it up on an Adhesive Foam Circle. I cut a slightly larger stitched oval from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock and adhered it beneath the white oval. I cut the card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and panels from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock and yellow and white dotted cardstock, and assembled the card. I stamped the sentiment on Solar White cardstock, cut it with the coordinating die, and adhered it to the bottom of the card front.

I cut the back panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of yellow dotted and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Succulent Banner stamp set and layered the panel on the red cardstock.

And one more look… I absolutely love this stamp set! Such a cute guy! ;)
