Fabulous Friend

Made for the Modsquad challenge this week using spring flowers. http://modsquadchallenge.com/spring-flowers/

Basically I had the corners left over from another frame I had die cut and I wanted to use them somehow. I really liked how the colours worked on the Blue Raspberry GKD CS as they are so bright on top. Glued them on first.

Then I took another small piece of card stock and die cut it with the Spellbinder set called distressed rectangle dies. I used a sakura gold pen on the edges to add a bit more interest. Then I stamped the dogwood flower using a set from Kitchen Sink stamps that I won last year and had not yet used. Its one of those layering stamp sets and I started with the scattered straw then mustard seed and finally crushed olive Distress Inks. The sentiment is two stamps from the Fabulous Flowers set by Melanie Muenchinger – GKD. I just thought they worked together. Added the corner gems for a bit of bling.

    1. Thanks so much Jan – I liked the colours together so much that I just had to use them. I’m not 100% sure about this 2 or three step stamping. I can’t seem to figure out the placement of the each level but I guess I need to practice.

    1. Yep, you are right, I keep finding things I had forgotten about and then in the case of the dies I decided to cut and see what it looked like. I also haven’t used some of my stamp sets yet although the intention is there. I have another set by Kitchen Sink Stamps that is baskets and I’ve not tried that yet either.

  1. There are times when a scrap piece is just too pretty to toss and these came from two frames that were too big for me to use unless I wanted a large card so I cut them down into corners. Didn’t measure though and they don’t quite match in length, lol.
