I can’t stop creating cards with the Share What You Love Suite! I finally finished the Make & Take from #OnStage2018 in Fort Worth in April after I was able to sweet talk my husband to bring me some more stamp pad colors down from my craft room.
I made a few modifications – I didn’t have my Mint Macaron pad handy so I used VersaMark for the background stamping; I didn’t have a ticket corner punch and didn’t like them rounded so I fussy cut the greeting; and I added a metal rose beneath the doily.
Here is picture of the packet showing what the finished project should look like.
After completing this project I thought I would try and tackle one of the project samples that Stampin’ Up! made and uses on their promotional materials. Perhaps you’ve seen it … this one.
I nearly drove myself insane trying to duplicate this layout. After about six attempts I finally got close enough to say mission accomplished. What do you think?
I tried all kinds of tricks to get the flowers to lay on the card front like the sample but nothing I did seemed to work. I nearly settled for this version after working on it for hours and hours yesterday.
Since I was having such a hard time with the placement of the flowers when stamping directly on the card base, I stamped the flowers separately on cardstock and then fussy cut them and then glued them onto the card base. This was too symmetrical for my eye.
How did I finally figure it out? I looked at the project sample on a larger screen and could see where the petal sections of the flowers met up when the flower was re-stamped!
