More Occasions Mini Magic . . . this time it's about "love" and the delicious Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper. The three big stamps from Big on Spring (p. 12, Occasions Mini) are some of my all time favorites. TIP: It's a fun opportunity to get the splashy effect of stamping the image area on patterned paper and snipping, either the heart (as in today's card) or the onesie (done previously here).
The colors of the Summer Picnic paper (Almost Artichoke, Old Olive, Bashful Blue) seemed like the perfect backdrop for today's project. I began with a base of Always Artichoke and layered a flowery Summer Picnic Pattern and Whisper White.
The main image is inked in Always Artichoke and stamped on Whisper White. It's layered on Bashful Blue and Always Artichoke. I stamped the heart image a second time on a bit of Bashful Blue Polka Dot (taken from the Prints Pack, Hostess Level I), cut out and mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals.
I then backed it with some luscious Summer Picnic striped paper matted on Always Artichoke. TIP: The perfect touches are a combination of Olive Flower Fusion felt flowers and Rhinestone Circle Brads. They are layered on a small strip of Whisper White and Always Artichoke.
