I am not much for coloring images for my cards. I have never been good at it, and I still color outside the lines. It’s the truth! I do! However, I just love this set. In Full Bloom has been in my collection for quite some time. This is a Two Step Stampin’ set. Using your Stamp-a-ma-Jig is recommended for this one as the stem can be kind of a lil bugger to line up.
This sympathy card was made for a good friend of mine. I know I have said it before, but I like to keep them simple yet pretty. I think I did it with this one.
The corner punch used here was a nice find Tim made at my Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Barb’s annual rubber rummage. Good finds there every year! 🙂 I don’t know the name of the punch, but it sure is pretty! Thank you Tim for adding it to our collection.
The flower is colored using my ink pads and a blender pen. There is a “specialized solution” in the blender pens that works awesome for transferring ink. While my ink pad is closed, I squeeze the cover down onto the ink pad. That transfers ink to the cover so I can pick it up with the Blender Pen to color. In my opinion, it gives you more of a water colored look. It is softer.
If you are using a darker colored card stock for your base, be sure to use a liner inside of matching light colored card stock. In this case, I used a piece of white.
