Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is another card featuring the Flower & Field 12” x 12” DSP! This sweet card also features the A Touch of Ink stamp set from the 2021 Sale-A-Bration catalog! The Flower & Field DSP can be earned with a $50 (USD) product purchase and the A Touch of Ink with a $100 (USD) product purchase! The A Touch of Ink stamp set is one of my favorites from the SAB catalog and pairs nicely with the design I chose for today’s card!
The base layer is this design from the Flower & Field DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼” (vertical). I cut up the whole sheet for six 4” x 5 ¼” base layers and six ¾” x 4” strips for the inside:
For the card front, you will need:
1. Use the third largest Stitched So Sweetly Dies to die-cut from Basic White cardstock. I used my Stamparatus to position the flower stamp (in Granny Apple Green ink) and the sentiment (in Memento ink). I then used Daffodil Delight ink for the second stamp of the flower stamp, stamping off once first.
2. Use the second largest Stitched So Sweetly Dies to die-cut from Granny Apple Green cardstock, this will be layered under the above die-cut.
3. Using the Whisper White twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack, you will need enough twine, folded over for a double piece, to tie around the DSP base layer into a bow.
4. Four of the 3mm Rhinestone Basic Jewels, not shown.
For me, I find it easier if one end of the twine is still attached, this way I can adjust the lines as needed (add more if needed or less if too much). I adjust the double twine around the base layer DSP and tie into a knot, using a glue dot to secure. I then tie into a bow and trim the ends as shown. I also included how much is my “excess”, which is not much, that I’m discarding:
The layered die-cut piece is adhered with dimensionals over the twine, use three of the rhinestones on the large flower and one on the smaller flower, and then adhere this completed piece to a So Saffron cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, use your Stamparatus to position the sentiment and the leaves stamp as shown, use Granny Apple Green ink (stamping off first) for the second step of the leaves stamp, and adhere the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:
I played around with different colors for the second step of the flower stamp, ultimately deciding on Daffodil Delight. However, I’m still using them all and here are some other options:
Card #2- Poppy Parade ink, stamping off once first.
Card #3- Poppy Parade ink.
Card #4- So Saffron ink, spritzing with water first.
Card #5- So Saffron ink and use a sponge dauber with Cherry Cobbler ink on the large flower.
Card #6- Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen.
Such an easy card to make and you can use this for any of your cards with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and Stamparatus! I’m so glad they brought back solid colored twine with the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack and the Well Suited Twine Combo Pack, which you can find in the Jan-June Mini Catalog!
