Flowers, Dots & Tags Tutorial

Hello there! Here is a card I made for the last Gina K Designs release party. I used images from three different stamp sets, A Year of Flowers 2, Lots of Dots and All Occasion Tags 2.

To start, I stamped a flower image, from A Year of Flowers 2, on white card stock and began coloring with my Y21 Copic marker.

Added Y17.

For the petals I started with R05.

Added RV23.

Then filled in with RV21. After coloring, I cut out the flowers.

Next, I cut a circle with Spellbinders™Circle Nestabilities and sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink while still in the die template.

I stamped a stem and leaf on the right,  then used a mask to cover the first leaf before stamping the stem and leaves on the left.

I removed the mask and began coloring with YG03.

Then filled in with YG95.

On white card stock, I stamped one of the tag images, from All Occasion Tags 2, using Memento Rose Bud ink.

Then I used sticky notes to mask off the frame and sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink. After sponging, I removed the mask, stamped the sentiment and cut out the tag.

For the card base (4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches), I used Pure Luxury Jelly Bean card stock and stamped the dot image, from Lots of Dots, using Pear Tart ink.

I adhered the background, flowers and tag, using 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I added eyelets to the tag before assembling and threaded a ribbon through them. The pretty sheer ribbon is part of the Gina K Color Companions collection.

Thanks for the visit. I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!
