Hello & welcome!
I'm here to share a card I made to give to my grandma who is turning 90 years young next week.
She is an amazing woman and I am so happy to be able to be with her on her special day.
Here is the finished card
For this card I used the Flower Jar Stamp Set with matching framelits, Distress Oxides, Archival Ink and watercolor paper.
I started by applying my Distress Oxides on to my splat mat (which is actually a bbq mat I bought at the $ store) then I gave these a spritz of water. Next I took my 5"x 5" square of watercolor paper and began creating my background.
To create an edge or frame for my card I swiped just the edges through the leftover ink on my craft mat. Normally I would use my blending foam applicator to do this but this was a happy accident on one edge. I loved it so much I did the same on the other 3 edges.
Here is the background
I needed something to help ground my focal point to the card so I took a stamp from the Tim Holtz Mixed Media 2 stamp set to create this loose crosshatch on my background.
I used some scraps of watercolor paper that I had on my desk to create the mason jars.
I love my Misti. I get perfect placement and a sharp, crisp stamped image every time.
I used the Flower Jar framelit set to die cut out my jars. Its hard to see in the photo but I also applied some glossy accents to the jars to give them some highlights.
To create my flowers, I first took some scrap watercolor (again!) and applied some Distress Oxides using the same technique as described above. I then stamped my flowers (using my Misti) then die cut these images out using the coordinating framelits.
It was time to stamp my sentiment and assemble my jars. I used pop dots for the jars then used liquid glue to tuck my flowers in behind the jars.
