May Flowers always line your path... - Stampendous is getting Sentimental!

This month Stampendous Team are getting very sentimental! We're playing with projects that focus on sentiments and invite you to play with us, too!

As always there is a fabulous prize for the lucky (the winner has to have a US mailing address).

Here is my take on the challenge :). For my card I used the stunning Cling Jumbo Baroque Bouquet (UK crafters click here, ps. thank you so much Jill! Mwah!) and the Cling Flower Path sentiment (UK crafters click here).

The flowers in the background were stamped with Sepia Archival and then coloured with Inktense pencils (thank you so much Paula for introducing them to me!). The sentiment panel was matted onto black cardstock and 'frantaged' with Aged Gold powder.

I then decorated the sentiment panel with seam binding ribbon (died with distress stains) and a spray of summer flowers - can you see that little Cameo? Isn't she the sweetest???

To finish the card I sprayed it with gold Cosmic Shimmer Mist and threw a handful of punched butterflies for a good measure ;).

Make sure you have a look at the whole beautiful collection of the sentimental projects that the Team have been working on this month. You are sure to be inspired!

Big hugs

What a beautiful card!! If I made something with these type of embellishments what is the best way to mail it?


Asia King (aka Joanna K) said...

Thanks Kay!

These flowers are not too big so this card could quite comfortably sit in a padded envelope. You could always wrap a layer of bubble wrap before you put it in the envelope.

For more dimensional cards I just use small cardboard boxes :)

Your card is lovely. So much detail! I love the colors and the little extra details you've added to make this such a stunner! That little cameo is so sweet. I also really like the technique where you added the gold around the green matting. That looks really nice. Beautiful flowers and sentiment, too!
