Recently Dawn McVey did a Make it Monday video for Papertreyink and I just LOVED the cards she made! It really inspired me to grab some stamps and create a few cards all at once pretty much following her foot steps!
Of course, it took me a week to finish them due to continued complications from oral surgery, a full-time job and school being back in session; my craft time is a wee bit limited - but hey, I got 'em done!
I thought I'd break them up over the next few days as once the main panel was finished, I completed each card a bit differently. All the floral images are from PTI's Farmer's Market stamp set; I used various Altenew inks and stamped everything in each corner of the main panel using the Misti; turned the card stock, stamp again and then insert the next main panel making 3 overall. Once the panels were finished; I used the RAH Grid Background stamp on each - one with PTI Vintage Cream, one with SSS Fog and one with PTI Hibiscus Burst. The Hibiscus Burst is very vibrant, the Fog is subtle - I REALLY like it and the Vintage Cream just got lost. :-/ I should have tried white!
I then spritzed each panel with shimmer mist and once dry, stamped the sentiment from WPlus9 in VersaFine black ink. Then we got down to making each card a wee bit different! This first one is all about dimension; I cut out the word FABULOUS and mounted with fun foam, added a layer of gold card stock, a dry embossed polka dot panel and some gold splatters for the final card.
I always decorate the inside of my cards (and envelopes) but this time decided to include photos of the inside (see my blog for photos); you can see those here: Whimsical Creations
