Hello and welcome back! Tonight I'm sharing a few more cards I made with the Vertical Garden stamp set. The set was designed to go with a kit, but it's also great on it's own. There are some big and bold greetings included in the set. Each greeting is two steps, the first is the main greeting and the second is a shadow image.
I made my card base using Basic Gray Cardstock. Then, I cut a layer of Smoky Slate word patterned paper and adhered it to the card front at an angle. I cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and sponged on Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay inks using a piece of Stampin' Sponge. I dropped some water on the background using my Aqua Painter, let it set for a minute and then blotted it up with a facial tissue. I love this water drop affect! I stamped the main greeting image in Basic Black ink, and stamped the shadow in Smoky Slate ink. I adhered that piece to the card base, also at an angle.
For the second card, I cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and folded in half for my card base. I cut a piece of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate to cover the card front. I made sure to adhere it in the middle, where the greeting would cover it up. I cut a piece of watercolor paper. I rubbed Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron inks onto a stamp block, spritzed it with water, and then applied it to the watercolor paper piece. I stamped the main greeting in Versamark Ink, and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I stamped the shadow in Crumb Cake Ink. I adhered it to a slightly large piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock. That was adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
To complete the card, I added enamel dots in Old Olive, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum.
Well, that is all for today. You can find links to the supplies listed below.
