I’m thrilled to be here for Day 3 of Winnie & Walter‘s April/May Release Premieres … and equally thrilled to read your wonderful comments over the last couple of days … thank you so much … they warm my heart! Today I’m showcasing another gorgeous floral stamp set … this time with with fluid, sketchy outlines … In Bloom: Addie’s Garden. There are also Cutaways premiering today for the previously released The Big, The Bold and Extras stamp set, plus brand new In Bloom: Maggie’s Roses … there’s a card using the latter set too, further down.
I tried something new with these outline tulips … and stamped them with Distress Inks, masking where needed. With an old refilled Wink of Stella pen (there’s still a smidge of shimmer left in it), I pulled the colour from the stamped lines and added more where shading was needed. The happy Cutaway is from Winnie & Walter’s The Big, The Bold and Happy … I cut it three times, stacked it together for a little dimension and adhered it so it hangs off the edge of the card. The rest of the sentiment will go inside … I didn’t want to detract from those fab blooms standing tall and straight, as tulips do!
Here’s a look at In Bloom: Maggie’s Roses …
This is a vellum rose, so the light shines through it when the card is open. I used an outline and a solid rose from this set … cut the outline into a card panel, used the space as a template to draw a pencil guide on the card base, and cut the solid rose into the base. The card panel was trimmed along the bottom and a strip of DP was fixed to the base. Then I made and adhered a sandwich together … card base, slip of delicately shaded vellum over the rose shaped space, top panel, outline rose back into it’s place. The sentiment is from The Big, The Bold and Comfort … Cutaways and stamps, that premiered on Tuesday.
