Pink Congrats Tutorial

Hello there! I pulled out Elegant Florals for this card. I can't seem to get enough of that set. I also used some of the brand new Spellbinders® die templates from the summer release.

To begin, I stamped the narcissus flowers on Pure Luxury White cardstock, using Memento Expresso Truffle ink. I used Copic markers to color, starting with RV19.

Then added RV17.

I filled in with RV13, really saturating the image to blend with the darker pinks. I didn't worry about the ink bleeding outside of the lines since I planned to cut out the image.

For the stems, I used YG25 and after finishing the coloring, I cut out the flowers.

Next I cut and embossed Spellbinders new Decorative Labels Twenty-eight, with white cardstock, then sponged Gina K Innocent Pink ink.

Then I cut and embossed Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A, with white cardstock and sponged using Gina K Innocent Pink again.  I also cut Pure Luxury Innocent Pink using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-eight.

I used another new Spellbinders die template, Labels Thirty-three, to cut embossed and stencil white cardstock. The sentiment is from Vogue Vases 2 and was stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle ink.

I adhered all the layers and the flowers using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. The pink silk ribbon is from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day!
