Good morning! I love this new Secret Garden stamp set and coordinating framelits from the Spring Catalog! I made this card using the color challenge from the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew challenge. The colors we were to use were: Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla, & Sahara Sand. Come join us and play along with the Creative Crew Challenges!
I stamped the flowers and cut them out using the coordinating framelits. Some of the flower centers were made my stamping the flowers again and punching out the centers using a punch from the itty bitty shapes punch pack and then I placed the centers on top of the flowers.
My honeycomb oval background was made by first cutting out an oval shape and I used the oval collection framelits for that and then I dry embossed the oval using the honeycomb embossing folder. Remember, cut first and emboss second!
Then I placed my background onto my card and I began arranging my flowers. Some of the flowers were placed onto my card using glue dots and some have dimensionals underneath them. I even have some dimensionals stacked to raise up some of the flowers even more.
Once my flowers were arranged on my card I added my sentiment. My sentiment is from the current SAB set, Bloomin' Marvelous. It's stamped and layered using oval punches and I have dimensionals under my oval sentiment. Then I decided it would be neat to place a small pearl at each of the hexagon corners as well as inside the center of the hexagons. This is a great way to use up those really tiny pearls. I did this step last so that I wouldn't end up wasting pearls and placing them where you wouldn't see them.
I want to give a special thank you to all of my new followers, you are the reason I keep blogging! I love sharing my cards with you! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
