- This sweet bouquet from Pocket Silhouettes was colored directly to the rubber using Stampin' Up! Markers in Old Olive, Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo. Melon Mambo is part of the new In Colors Marker set available July 1.
- TIP: A few huffs on the marker colored stamp adds a touch of moisture for better coverage.
- The image was stamped on Whisper White. Using sponges and Pretty in Pink ink, I created a pink "shadow" around the edges.
- The Matchbox Messages frame was inked in VersaMark and stamped on Old Olive card stock. TIP: Heat embossing with Gold Embossing Powder produces a rich finish for the frame.
- The floral image was layered on top with Stampin' Dimensionals. A piece of Melon Mambo rests at the base.
- I followed the sketch from this week's Splitcoast Sketch Challenge (SC234). Pretty in Pink Textured card stock tops Old Olive for the small rectangles.
- A couple snippets of Melon Mambo 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon jazz up the rectangles.
- A 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Pretty in Pink Textured card stock was layered over a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Old Olive and a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Whisper White card base (scored on the top).
- Gold Brads mirror the gold embossing. TIP: Add brads before attaching the closest layer to the card base. I try to sink my brads as deep as possible to bury the "legs," without popping through to the inside of the card.
- A piece of Melon Mambo card stock took a ride through my Big Shot Die-Cut Machine with the Matchbox Bigz XL Die. This produced the charming tag for the sentiment.
- The coordinating Matchbox stamp was layered over the tag using a Stamp-a-ma-jig (SAM) and Melon Mambo ink. TIP: I employed a little removable adhesive to keep the tag in place while I used the SAM and stamp.
- The tag was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.
