Good Morning! Here is another Field Flowers card that I pulled out of my stash for this set. ¬† I actually made this card a couple of years ago, but wanted to show you another Field Flowers card. ¬†This really is a beautiful set and can be used for a variety of things – weddings, thinking of you, sympathy, mother’s day, birthday, etc. The details on this cards: 1. ¬†The card base is marina mist cut in half at 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ to make the card base. 2. ¬†The background is night of navy cardstock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and embossed with a victorian embossing folder which is no longer available. ¬†If I were making this card today, I would use the beautifully baroque embossing folder. 3. ¬†I added a little dimension to the background of this card by stamping with the En Francais background stamp with marina mist ink stamped off. ¬†I then used the now retired set – Fresh Vintage (a SAB set from two years ago) and very lightly stamped a couple of flower images, stamping off on scrap paper first. ¬†I then very lightly sponged the edges of the white cardstock. 4. ¬†The flower stems are stamped with Always Artichoke ink. ¬†The flowers are stamped with night of navy. ¬†I stamped the background image first on a scrap paper to “stamp Off” and create a lighter image for the background of the stamp. ¬†I then used the detail stamp with night of navy ink over the background image. 5. ¬†This piece is layered onto marina mist card stock. ¬†I scalloped the bottom edge of the card stock using the scallop trim border punch. 6. ¬†Next I stamped the sentiment “with Love” with night of navy ink and punched it out with the oval punch. ¬†This is layered onto a piece of night of navy card stock punched with the oval scallop punch. 7. ¬†Last but not least are the Embellishments. ¬†I used a layer of Victoria Crochet Trim and the pearl jewels to accent the center of the large flower and the scallop on the bottom of the floral layer. I hope you have enjoyed this card sample!
Over the next couple of days I am going to share a few cards that I made with Field Flowers stamp set. ¬†Even though this is not a new set – I found myself playing with it yesterday!! Before we get started with the cards, I thought that I would share a pic of my summer office. ¬†As many of you know, I spend a good bit of my summer in Dennis on Cape Cod. ¬†I know it is a difficult life but someone¬†has to manage the¬†teenage children! Today and yesterday have been perfect days. ¬†The humidity has finally broken and the temps are in the 70’s. ¬†Not too hot, not too cold. ¬†So I have moved my computer outside for today. ¬†It is very pleasant. ¬†I can hear the waves and the kids playing on the beach (also the parking lot, but I am choosing to block that out LOL). Ok on to some card shares!! ¬†Yesterday I decided to play around with¬†one of my favorite sets Field Flowers. ¬†I saw a card on Ann Schach’s site that I absolutely loved so changed it up a little for what I needed. ¬†Also – I wanted to use one of the new designer papers that I hadn’t opened yet… So I used the Designer paper Etcetera which has the colors Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Pool Party and Very vanilla. ¬†I am really liking the Vintage look to this paper. ¬† ¬†One of my customer asked for a Vintage class – I think this might be the designer paper to use! So the details of these cards: 1. ¬†the Card base is very vanilla with a layer of calypso coral cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. 2. ¬†I liked the look of the old olive and pool party design as a background piece but then couldn’t decide which coordinating piece I liked better for the side. 3. ¬†On the first card – I used a strip of the calypso coral pattern, making sure that I lined up the victorian pattern in the middle of my strip. ¬†I love the look that these two papers together created and the way the seam of the two papers fell with the stripe in the coral paper. ¬†It looks as if the paper is torn! But then I also like the Vintage look of the vintage newspaper piece. ¬†So I tried a 1 1/4″ strip of this piece with the background. ¬†I liked the two together but didn’t like the seam where the two pieces meet. ¬†So I added a piece of trim that I made using the scallop trim border punch. 4. ¬†The flowers and stems are stamped on a 2″ x 3 1/2″ piece of very vanilla card stock layered onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock. ¬†The stems are stamped using old olive ink. 5. ¬†The flowers are stamped on a scrap of very vanilla card stock with calypso coral ink. ¬†This is a two part stamp – so I stamped the background piece first and stamped off on a scrap paper to make the coral a shade lighter. ¬†Then for the detail of the flower, I used the second detail stamp and stamped with calypso coral at full strength. The flowers are stamped on scraps of very vanilla and cut out. ¬†They are raised with dimensionals to pop off the card! ¬†Of course I then had to enhance the flowers with a few pearls. ¬†And my cards are complete! Perfect for a wedding card or Thinking of You card. So which card do you like best?? ¬†Leave me a message. Enjoy your day!
