You Make Me Happy - Pretty Perennials

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my card for this week's creative challenge over at the Spot.  This week we have a fun technique challenge to help inspire you.  For my project this week I picked the Pretty Perennials Bundle to create with.  Here's a look at my project.

Here's the inspiration image for this week's challenge.  The challenge this week is all about splatters, spritzing, smooching, etc.  


Tips & Tricks: 

For my card today I did a lot of splattering of ink.  To do this I first start out with the rightt cardstock.  I perfect to use either Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper or Shimmery White Cardstock because they both can handle a lot of water. I have a tendency to use a lot of water mixed with my ink to get a good splatter.  I used Soft Seaform, Rococo Rose, and Night of Navy Ink Refills and my Water Painters to do my Splttering today.

I pulled the colors for my card from my featured Sale-A-Bration Item of the Week.  This week I am featuring the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper which can be earned for Free with qualfing order during Sale-A-Bration (January 5th - February 28th).  You can see the strip of the Designer Series Paper on the card but I also used the Paper Bloom Designer Series Paper for the stitched Circle that you see.  Along with some of the stems and leaves you see on my card as well as the two small flowers.  All three were cut from the a piece of the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper.

For my stamping I used the Pretty Perennials Stamp Set and the matching Perennial Petals Dies to cut them all out.  I did have to fussy cut the word Happy out since there isn't a matching die.  I also cut a vellum shadow of the Happy and placed behind it.  This is super simple to do.  Simple stamp and cut out your word and place on a piece of Vellum Cardstock.  Take a pencil and trace around it as thick as you want the shadow and simply cut inside the line with your Paper Snips.  Now I have the perfect shadow piece behind my sentiment.

I popped the word up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I placed the happy onto the vellum shadow with Mini Glue Dots and then placed the Stampin' Dimensionals behind the vellum.  I then placed the vellum piece on to my circle that I cut out from the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper that I placed a Night of Navy scalloped circle behind it.  For my stamped images I cut out everything using my Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  I finished off my sentiment by heat embossing a smaller sentiment on a strip of Night of Navy Cardstock with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.
