After all that's been going on in our world AND a looooong Winter (for some of us!), I think we're all ready for some COLOR and what better way to show it than using FLOWERS! Here's what I came up with for my two cards using MFT's Bring Out the Sunshine stamp set:
I made a birthday and hello card using the basket of flowers that came in this sweet little MFT set.
My green and yellow colors for this card came from the nursery rhyme "A Tisket, A Tasket" ( a green and yellow basket) and I so badly wanted to put that on the front of my card for the sentiment, but then I couldn't figure out how to finish the inside of the card for an occasion, so it just ended up being a birthday card. Anyway, I started with a die cut panel using Lawn Fawn's Quilted Backdrop, and then used MFT's Rectangle Peek - A - Boo Window die to cut out a space for my basket and birdie. The sentiment is from PTI's Meadow Greens stamp set and die cut with SU!'s oval dies.
This sweet girl with the hat (and matching flowers) was the reason I bought this stamp set...she is just adorable and I love her holding the basket of brightly colored posies! I did not buy the dies for this set (grrrrr!!) so I had to do some fussy cutting of both the girl and the basket, and then also had to use my exacto knife to cut around her arm so I could slip the basket handle underneath to make it look like she was holding it. I used my Copics to color her and her basket and then placed her on a background that I clear embossed and blended using a Catherine Pooler background stamp (Sketch Plaid). Here's a closer up so you can see the background a bit better...
I finished this card with a die cut "hello" also from Catherine Pooler and layered with a thin black layer and attached to a white card base.
So there you have it...a birthday card and a hello card both using the same basket of flowers but in different designs and for different occasions. We'd love to see YOU in the gallery with 2 different FLOWER cards, so check out the inspiration from the rest of the DT and then play along with us right HERE. This challenge is open till the 24th.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
