Summer Blooms With Kara

Hey Guys! It's Kara and I'm back with a Thank You card inspired by the colors around me. The weather here in NJ has been so warm and lovely! The daffodils and rhododendrons are blooming with pinks and yellows making me very happy!

When I pulled out the Summer Blooms stamp set to create this Thank You card I knew I wanted to replicate those colors. The WPlus9 range of PURE Color Dye Inks has the perfect hues.

I started by stamping two of the larger flower images in Falling Star and Wild Mango. I added the two large stems next. I placed the stem on my block with a curve. I stamped it once for one flower and then turned the block around and stamped it again for the second flower. This way the stems were curving in opposite directions. With the same green ink, Mojito, I added the larger leaves.

I filled in the empty areas with a smaller stem, leaves and flowers. The small flowers are stamped in Little Piggy and Sweet Gelato The little stamens are stamped in black ink as well as the sentiments.

Once all of my stamping was complete I die cut the panel with the Sunshine Layers Die. This is a great design for a one layer card, but I just can't help myself! I had to add a little black contrast and pop everything up.

Thank you so much for coming by today! I hope you are having a lovely day.
