Lovely You Magenta Smile Flowers
P retty card to send to give someone a smile. Uses Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Magenta Madness Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 3" x 4-3/4" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 1-3/4" x 4-3/4" from Old Olive Cardstock
Place the white cardstock vertically on top of some Grid Paper to protect your work surface.
Mount one of the shorter sentiments from the Lovely You Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Magenta Madness Ink Pad. Stamp it about 1" from the bottom and 1/2" from the left side on the white rectangle.
Mount the large, single flower on a stem with two little leaves image from the Lovely You Set on Block B. Ink up the petals of the flower using the brush tip of the Magenta Madness Marker. Ink up the stem, leaves, and base of the flower using the brush tip of the Old Olive Marker. Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink. Stamp the flower on stem image in the lower right corner of the stamped white rectangle so the bottom of the stem goes off the edge in the lower right corner. Re-ink the stamp using the markers and stamp the flower on stem image at least three more times along the right edge of the white rectangle. Remember to re-ink the stamp with the markers each time and breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink before stamping. Let some of the images go off the edges of the cardstock. Rotate the orientation of the image each time.
Mount the single flower image from the Lovely You Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Magenta Madness Ink Pad. Stamp it randomly down the right side of the white rectangle. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time. Let some of the images go off the edges and let some of the images overlap each other and the previously stamped flower on a stem images.
Pick out the long skinny leaf border die from the Birds & More Dies. Put it on top of the Old Olive rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the ending leaves are right alongside the left, short edge of the cardstock and the whole die is right along the long edge of the cardstock. Run through the tool. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.
Adhere the Old Olive leaves border cut out to the left side of the stamped white rectangle so about 1/8" of solid Old Olive shows between the left side of the white rectangle and the leaves border.
Cut a 5-1/2" piece of the Old Olive 1/4" ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.
Lay the ribbon across the left side of the cardstock layers so a tiny line of white cardstock shows on the left side of the ribbon. Flip the layers over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add Stampin' Seal to the back of the cardstock rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Magenta Madness card in the center.
Cut a 3-1/2" piece of the Old Olive 1/4" ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.
Slide the one end of the ribbon under the ribbon on the card front just to the left of the stamped sentiment. Tie it in place using a half knot. Trim the ends.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 2 small and 1 medium rhinestone from a sheet of Rhinestone Basic Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them to the stamped white rectangle so they are evenly spaced under the sentiment with the medium rhinestone in the center.
