Throw back Thursday is a fun, day I can be inspired by my past work. Sometimes I think have I posted this before, that is why I like Throwback Thursday, it is designed to repeat.
So here we go…
In April 2012 I posted this card…
This card used Greenhouse Garden stamp set (retired) which was a two step stamp. I love two step stamps they create great dimension. I just loved this set, I don't think there is a flower stamps set I haven't liked actually.
Sometimes when you can figure out what to stamp find a previous card you made and use it as your template. That is what I did here, I used the layout and similar colors to create today's card…
How I made this card…
The card base is Hello Honey cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" folded in half.
I stamped the lower half of the card with the Beautiful Bunch flower in Hello Honey Classic Ink.
I stamped "celebrate" from the Fabulous Four stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink on the Very Vanilla (2" x 5 1/2") on the left hand side.
I then took a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock (5 1/2" x 3") and punched it with the Dotted Scalloped Ribbon Border Punch twice two creating two paper ribbon strips. I adhered one behind the Very Vanilla Cardstock and one on Top to the bottom edge.
I then adhered the Very Vanilla about 3/4" from the top with snail adhesive.
Then I stamped the same flower in Blackberry Bliss.
The Beatuiful Bunch also has a solid flower stamp which I inked in Hello Honey Ink and stamped off 2x's (meaning I stamped it on a scrap piece of paper before I stamped it over the Blackberry Bliss flower). Stamping off creates a lighter shade of ink.
I then punched out the flower with the Fun Flower Punch and adhere with dimensional to the lower right hand side of the Very Vanilla.
I tied a piece of Linen Thread through the ribbon into a bow and adhered to the center of the flower with a glue dot.
So while the template is the same and both use flowers and similar colors they create very different looking cards. Which is your favorite Right or Left? I would love for you to leave a comment and let me know which one you like best.
