Hello! It's the third day of hopping with the GKD Design Team and today we are showcasing the One Free With Three stamp set for this month, One in a Million. You get this stamp set for free when you order three other stamp sets. You're going to love the inspired sentiments in this set, along with the whimsical flowers.

For even more inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the team...



To make my card, I cut a piece of Pure Luxury White card stock with Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® rectangle die template and sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink while it was still in the die template.

Sponged Memento Rose Bud.

Sponged Memento New Sprout.

Sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves.

I removed the die template and stamped the floral image twice. I used sticky notes to mask the sides.

I began coloring with my YG25 Copic marker.

Added shading with YG95.

Used RV19 on some of the flowers.

Added RV17.

Added RV23.

Filled in with RV21.

For the remaining flowers, I started with YG07.

Added Y17.

Filled in with Y11.

I added self adhesive gems to some of the flower centers. I used a Pure Luxury Bubblegum Pink card base and added score lines with my Scor-pal. I popped up the image panel with Pop Dots and stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
