It seems everyone liked the orange blossom dies, how about a stamp to match? Today's card uses the brand new shaded orange blossom stamps that match sue's new dies and features a bit of a change for me, not stamped in black or grey?!?
I started by stamping the orange blossom stamps onto coconut white foundation card using deep purple archival ink. I then cut them out using the matching dies and shaped the flowers using a ball tool and the mat I use for my stamping. I then cut the matching leaves and shed through the die to get the foliage using the new mini smoothie. I used the fine point which gave me a great deal of control over the ink.
For the base of the card I cut an aperture using the central die form the new Cathedral background. I stuck this over a background I created as a test of a technique I have been working on for my new stamping show on the 7th December ( I have been playing with some Brand New stamp designs which will be launched on the 7th December) I call the technique Seed Pearl background, however this is a sneak peak you may have to tune into the shows or my blog on the 7th ti see how it was done ( I am a tease at times lol)
The rest of the card was put together as shown using a combination of the rectangles with a central spray of the flowers and foliage which highlight the sentiment, from my tulip elements clear stamps set, stamped onto the smallest Pierced flags from Sue Wilson for CE. I love the way that each collection builds so that the piercing on the tags and flags matches perfectly with the new squares and rectangles.
Another new Stamp to Die for tomorrow!
Edited as spelt really badly lol x
