Lovely Words With Floral Background Cards

The floral images from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set are so dainty and pretty!  I used them along with some bold new washi tape to create a lovely floral background for my Lovely Words die-cuts!

CASEd from Peggy Noe at Pretty Paper Cards.
Basic Elements—I started this card with a 4-1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White.  Before stamping the flowers, I added two patterns of the black & white Pick a Pattern Washi Tape along the top and bottom edges.

Floral Background—Next, I stamped the flowers & leaves from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, leaving plenty of white space for my sentiment.  Here's the order and what I used:
  • Stamp the solid larger flowers in Flirty Flamingo ink 3 times.
  • Stamp the small 5-petal flower in Marina Mist randomly in between.
  • Stamp the twig in Lemon Lime Twist in the larger white spaces.
  • Fill in the rest of the blank spaces with the leaf in Lemon Lime Twist.

I filled in the smaller blank spaces by making three little dots with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Write Marker.  I love this little detail!  It gives the background just a bit of country whimsy.

Sweet Sentiment—I die-cut the "friend" word from Basic Black using the Lovely Words Thinlits and the Precision Base Plate for awesome cutting.  The word is attached to a larger oval die-cut shape, so I just used my Paper Snips to trim the outer part away.  It's adhered to the layer using Multipurpose Glue lightly sponged onto the back. 
I mounted the focal point onto a Lemon Lime Twist card base, then finished the look with three floating Pearl Jewels.

Two Cool—The second version uses a different color combination beginning with a Marina Mist card base.  I also made the larger flowers and tiny dots Peekaboo Peach this time.

And, I tried a different Lovely Words die-cut, too!  Really pretty!
