I did more stamping today. I intended to make 2 of the first card, but adapted it a bit to create the 2nd one. The other card I made today will be posted tomorrow...it is not a VSN card. (gasp!)
The first card is for the challenge "Use Your Negative." We could use the negative space from a die cut, the split-negative technique, or other similar approaches. I went to my scrap pile, and saw a strip of this retired dsp, Cheerful Treat, as well as more retired hostess pack paper in bashful blue. I LOVE using up my scraps! (Still have a LOT!) By having these scraps, my color palette was set. I used this large blossom punch, then sponged melon mambo in the negative space. I placed the paper flower on top to mask it, while I moved my "stencil" to sponge 2 concord crush flowers. The leaves are done in lucky limeade, to match the card base, using the SU bird punch. I added a corduroy brad and candy dots for the flower centers. The sentiment is from "On Your Birthday" with the duo of oval punches.
Instead of duplicating the card, I got more dsp out to simply punch flowers, and I used a scrap to punch out leaves. I even had this tiny scrap of daffodil delight that was already embossed with the perfect dots folder. I simply used a small circle punch to make the flower centers. Similar card, but a bit faster to make.
Thanks for stopping by again! I hope to do the other VSN cards later this week.
