Firstly I would like to than k all the lovely women of Kent ( no special mentions June or Martine!lol) who came to the workshop yesterday. It was fab day with a wonderful spread ( I am finishing off the chocolate cake as I type this!)
Back to today and I thought I should, as promised, stick away form the trees and media plates for a bit so thought I would share a hybrid card using stamping and die cutting with even some embossing thrown in!
I stared by cutting a square of card 4"x4" I then added this to the corner of my Press to Impress stamp platform and added the cherry blossom silhouette stamp to the platform covering one of the sides. I inked this with Grenadine Izink dye ink and stamped this. I rotated the card four times stamping the blossom each time until they met to m are the frame as shown. I then reversed the stamp and repeated the process using rose izink dye ink. Finally I stamped the sentiment, in a smokey grey versatile *( black would of been too harsh)
I matted the stamped panel in raspberry card and then cut 4 matching panels of white at 3.5" square and embossed them with the Crafts Too solid roses square embossing folder. I shaded around the edges with more of the Rose ink and the new mini blending tool. These I matted onto a large square of the raspberry card.
The flowers and Ivy are cut in white card and shaded with the rose ink ( I think there was a little of the dawn on my blending tool as I've got a little orange as well!) I don't know what the dies are as they are from an old folder I found whilst tidying I believe they are Nellie ones but I'm sure you can add some from your stash!
