Blooming With Kindness

This card is CASE'd from one I saw by Julie Gearinger. She is a very talented stamper and demonstrator and I immediately wanted to make this card. I changed some of the colors and I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to my card which doesn't show up very well in the photo.


And the inside:

The flowers are stamped on Naturals Ivory cardstock with StazOn ink. I stamped and cut a mask using a Post-it Note to cover the first stamped flower in the lower corner and then stamped the other two flowers. The mask keeps the 2nd and 3rd images from overlapping the 1st one. When I cut a mask for a class project I keep 3 sheets of the Post-it Notes together and stamp the image on the top sheet and then cut out all three layers at one time. While the other two don't have the stamped image on them it's easy to line up over whatever you are wanting to mask. I like having a few extra especially when several people will be using a mask.

Next color the flowers with a marker. You don't have to be terribly careful when coloring but you do need to leave some small "white" spaces, areas that you do not color. I used Indigo. Then I added a line of color with both the Pistachio and Crumb Cake markers around the edges of the flowers. Once you have this done spritz it with alcohol which dries faster than using water. Putting the cardstock in a box makes spritzing a little less messy. You can either let it air dry or speed it up by using a heat tool. This is what it will look like before you spritz it with the alcohol.kindness spritz

I then added some background design. Those Post-it-Note masks make this easy to do and not overlap those images with the stamped flowers. The last step was adding some glitter.
