Hi there! I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, a college English professor, a mom to Annabelle (12) and Henry (9), and a wife to Eric (um . . .). I craft for fun and sanity. I am so glad you came to see my playful designs using ink and fibers. If you like what you see, please follow me online or come to my classes in Springfield, IL!
Today's project is not hard, but it takes a little time.
First, I layered the leaf stem stamp repeatedly in Old Olive until I built up a nice mound.
On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the flower in Tangelo Twist and spread the ink around with my Blender Pen until I had the effect I liked.
I then inked up the Blender Pen with Hello Honey and spread it around the center of the flower.
I fussy cut the flower out and popped it up with a dimensional.
The "Choose Happiness" sentiment sits atop a piece of Old Olive cut with Fringe Scissors.
TIP: Be sure not to cut the whole strip or it will fall apart. Cut in from one side and then cut in from the other leaving the center whole.
I hope you like this project! If you do, check out my two tabs at the top of this page: "Stamp of the Week" or "Cards of the Week" for more information about how to get this and other projects featured this week. Thanks for looking, Alison
