Welcome to my blog and the newest Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!
This month we are featuring projects using these amazing Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. We’re pairing these detailed sheets with various stamp sets. The stamp set I’m using is the Inspiring Iris Stamp Set. This stamp set is soooooo very pretty and has a mix of flower single flowers and long stemmed flowers.
All four of my cards feature backgrounds cut from the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. These squares are easy to cut out from the sheet and create a beautiful background for your cards.
For my first card I’ve stamped the single flower stamp three times and gave it them some watercolour with Highland Heather Ink. I added more ink in the crease lines to give definition to the petals. I then added Daffodil Delight Ink to the centre of the blooms with my Daffodil Delight Blends.
The leaves I’ve used are a combination of leaves from the stamp set and also leaves that I’ve trimmed from the laser-cut sheet. There are so many leaves that you can trim from the sheets with just a snip here and a snip there. I gave these leaves colour with some Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow Inks. The sentiment on this sentiment is from Beautiful Friendship. I layered the sentiment on a strip of Highland Heather Ink – a little bit off centre.
This second card was created with the long stemmed iris stamp. I had fun colouring these flowers with Elegant Eggplant Ink and Daffodil Delight Blends for the centre. The leaves have been lightly watercoloured with Pear Pizzazz Ink. Again I added a strip of Highland Heather Cardstock under the sentiment.
These background laser-cut outs do all the work on my cards. I matted this cut out with Highland Heather Cardstock so it shows through the intricate panel. I then added flowers and leaves as created on my first card. The sentiment is also from the Inspiring Iris Stamp Set.
For my final card, I daubed the background with Highland Heather Ink so it peaks through the cut out. I then layered the fussy cut irises as well as leaves with the sentiment from Rare Blessing Stamp Set. Under the sentiment, I added a Whisper White Bakers Twine strip and bow.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the projects I’ve created. The next Artisan in the hop is my amazingly talented friend, Rochelle Blok. Click on her name or the badge below to continue on the hop. I’ve listed all the names of the team below if you get lost along the way.
