I've featured lots of new products on these two cool cards!
I started by using several new markers to color the beautiful image on the Wildflower Meadow stamp: Pear Pizzazz, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Wisteria Wonder and Coastal Cabana.
TIP: When stamping with a larger stamp image like this, I recommend stamping on the Piercing Mat. The cushioned surface will ensure that you get a complete and crisp image every time. Simply lay a piece a scrap paper over the top to keep the surface clean.
A stamped the hummingbird a second time, cut him out, and popped him up with a Dimensional.
After layering my stamped piece onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pear Pizzazz, I wrapped a piece of Strawberry Slush Ruffled Stretch Trim around it, securing it on the back with SNAIL.
TIP: I tried laying down a line of Sticky Strip on the fron to the card to adhere the ribbon, but since the trim is stretchy, it's difficult to lay it down evenly. I had better luck keeping the ribbon loose on the front and adhering around the back.
The sentiment is from the Too Kind stamp set, stamped in Coastal Cabana and punched with the Decorative Label Punch.
I stepped up the second card by using the Wildflower Meadow Texture Impressions Folder that perfectly matches the stamp!
Bundle It To Save! Purchase both the Wildflower Meadow stamp and folder together in a Bundle and save 15%! Awesome!
Check out that awesome raised texture around each image! Love it!
Watercolor Marker Spritz—I also used my Stampin' Spritzer to mist my colored stamp before stamping onto the Whisper White card stock. This gives the images a soft and pretty, faux watercolor look.
I finished this card by adding some Dazzling Diamonds to the flower centers with a 2-Way Glue Pen. So sparkly!
The sentiment is also from Too Kind, this time punched with the Artisan Label punch.
