Hi there and welcome back for Day 2 of Power Poppy's June stamp release! How did you like yesterday's amazing Poppies stamp set? That set makes me so very happy but I have to say...today's set is quite a beaut too! Just have a look at Sage Advice...
When I first saw these images, I know I squealed. I mean, is that not the most darling colander of herbs?! The mixed fonts for the sentiments are pretty sweet too....I fell head over heels for the one I used for my card today. So let me show you what I created....
I stamped my image with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink onto white card stock and colored my image up with a boat load of Copics . Now, I have to give a shout out to the a-mazing Jennifer Dove and her Color of the Day ideas because I referenced that to color my colander. She had some Copic color ideas that were perfect for what I wanted to do....so a huge thank you Jennifer!! :)
After coloring, I die cut my image out with a Spellbinders oval die and sponged on some Ranger Distress inks in Peeled Paint and Frayed Burlap then added a little Papertrey Ink Chamomile and Chai distress inks around the edges. My card base is an A2 size cream card stock. I cut a slightly smaller layer, used Stampin' Up!'s Vine Street embossing folder and embossed part of it and then stitched my patterned paper to it. I stamped the sentiment in more Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped the little chive bracket with some Stampin' Up! Old Olive ink. To finish things off I used my Wink of Stella clear pen to give some shimmer here and there to my colored image and to the little chive bracket around the sentiment. I assembled my layers, using foam dimensionals to pop the image oval then added buttons and hemp cord to add that "one more thing" I thought it needed. :)
Don't you just love the looks of old copper kitchen ware? And all of those beautiful herbs with the wonderful detail that Marcella is known for.....does it make you wanna squeal too? :) I'm with ya....
You'll have to forgive my little photo shoot today....I had some extra time to take photos and I guess I got a little carried away. I actually put this card in the antique china cabinet in our kitchen for the photos.....don't you think it looks right at home there? That may be where it stays for a while!
Well, that is all for my card today but my Bloomie sisters have created some mighty pretty cards for your crafting inspiration so make sure you to pay them a visit and leave a little blog love while you're there. So glad you were able to stop by today for a visit and why don't you just come on back tomorrow for Day 3 of Power Poppy's June release.....I'd love to see ya! Until then, take care! :)
