Good Afternoon - While you are reading this I will be on vacation - yes we decided that as it is Spring break we would join friends and enjoy some R&R time Up State.
A few weeks ago I was asked if I would like to do a month long guest design team spot for 2 Paper Divas - I was delighted to accept and over the next 4 Tuesdays I will be showcasing some of their gorgeous floral stamps.
2 Paper Divas is an online stamp company owned by 2 friends - Melissa and Gayla - who stamps are influenced by their love of the mountains, ocean and outdoors they also have a vintage-style flair to some of their stamps. I love all things nature so their stamps are perfect for me to craft with!
So onto this week's showcase. I am using 2 of their stamps on my first card:
First I stamped just the sunflower heads 3 times, I then colored them before fussy cutting them and shaping them to give them dimension.
I then die cut a small scalloped oval from out of the center of a piece of design paper adhered a piece of white stamping card under this and stamps the sentiment in brown ink. This was positioned on my card blank which was matted with a coordinating brown design paper - I used the same design paper to die cut the ivy corners. I arranged the sunflowers around the sentiment, placed an ivy corner at the bottom left and trimmed the second one before placing in top right.
A few enamel dots just complete the look.
