Garden In Bloom card

Right now is the season for everything blooming and along with that comes the allergies associated with it.  I love the spring and all the different flowers that are in my hometown of Sacramento, California.  Here is a card that showcasing a great flower stamp set "Garden In Bloom" but doesn't use the traditional "spring colors". 




Supplies:
•    Stamp Sets – Garden in Bloom (139433)
•    Card Stock – Whisper White (100730); Daffodil Delight (119683)
•    Stamp Pads – Black Memento (132708); Cucumber Crush (138324); Pumpkin Pie (126945); Melon Mambo (126948); Rich Razzleberry (126950)
•    Misc. – Basic Jewels Pearls  (119247); Marker’s (131264); Project Life Journaling Pens (135304) Black Sharpie; Glue Dots (103683); Dimensionals (104430)

Measurements:
•    Whisper White Base 4 ¼ x 11
•    Whisper White for the Flowers and Leaves 4 ¼ x 5 1/2
•    Daffodil Delight 2 ½ x 4 ¼
       
Instructions:
1.    Cut the Daffodil Delight and sponge working right to left…..with Cucumber Crush, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and finally the Rich Razzleberry. Blending as you go.
2.    Place piece in the cutter and have one point hitting the cutting area and the other point hitting the 2 ½ mark at an angle. So you want to slice off a piece of the pie so to speak.
3.    I then took my ruler and made two lines using my Project Life Markers to add a little black dimension to it.
4.    Stamped all images in black and filled in with colors above. I did color the center of my flowers with coordinating colors.
5.    I fussy cut the flowers and added them with glue dots but added the top flower with a dimensional.
6.    Pearls were added after I colored them with my black Sharpie.
