Creative Friends – Create a Smile Stamps Handmade Card

Hi crafty friends and welcome back to my crafty space. I’m backΒ with a new card using quite a few of the amazing Create a Smile stamps πŸ™‚
As I previously said in another post, I love to watch Laura Bassen’s videos and I recently saw one with gorgeous, colorful flowers on a blue navy cardstock and I fell in love with it. So I decided to try to make one using different flower sets from Create a Smile.
You can find my post over at Create a Smile Stamps blog.
Β 
First, I die cut a blue navy panel using the largest stitched rectangle die and I stamped the sentiment in the center using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder.
Next, I stamped in VersaMark and white heat embossed all the flowers and leaves on different colored cardstocks. This part was different than Laura Bassen’s one cause she used solid stamps, so I tried to adapt mine using outline stamps.
After I stamped and embossed the images I started fussy cut them with my scissors.Β 
Next, to give them the ombre look I added some Distress Inks using the ink blending technique.Β 
Then, after I arranged the elements on my card and I was happy with the placement, I glued some of them directly on the panel and I mounted a few using foam tape for a little dimension.Β 
Next, I cut off all the extra that was outside of my panel and I mounted it on a white card base.Β 
I added a few clear droplets and my card was done.
Don’t be afraid to try and make cards that you see online and you love. If you don’t have the exact products just use what you have and make it work πŸ˜‰Β 
And the most important thing, don’t forget to GIVE CREDIT to the crafter who made the card that inspired you.

I hope you like my card and you got inspired!Β

And thank you so much for stopping by,
