SSC116: Sneak Peak of What I Love

Happy Sunday! It's time for another fun challenge at Sunday Stamps! and I have a SNEAK PEAK to share with you.  This beautiful Sale-a-bration stamp set is called "What I Love" and will be available for you to earn for FREE with a $50 purchase starting January 5, 2016.

This is considered a two-step stamp set, but actually it is a three-step stamp set.  It was so fun and easy to create this card! I did not even line up the images.  I just stamped them!  It makes beautiful flowers and has a whimsical style with a matching font.  

My design layout is based on the following NEW challenge at Sunday Stamps!.

I decided to literally make the flowers into a strip across the front of the card.  The colors I used to create the flowers are: Blackberry Bliss and Calypso Coral ink. The leaves were stamped using Old Olive ink.

I stamped a row of flowers across my white panel, and then went back and added 3 more on to the top using Dimensionals.  I also added some splatter from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and a strip of Blackberry Bliss washi tape to the top using the 2014-2016 In Color Designer Washi Tape collection which can be found on page 157 of the annual catalog.  
How did I create the flowers?
I first stamped the smallest image of the flower in Blackberry Bliss onto a scratch piece of paper before stamping on my white panel.  Next, I stamped the larger flower image using Calypso Coral ink -again stamping onto scratch paper before stamping on my white panel.  Lastly, the outlined image of the flower was stamped full strength in Blackberry Bliss ink.  A very soft and elegant look.

Here's a picture of the 3 step process:

For this card, I stamped the flower images withou worrying about perfect allignment.  You can line them up perfectly if you want to. I just think it isn't necessary given the watercolor look of the stamp set. :)

Okay, now aren't you getting excited for Sale-a-bration to start???  I know I am! I can't wait to create and share with my friends and customers!  Okay, so now that you've seen my SNEAK PEAK share, please head over to the other Sunday Stamps! designers and check out their creations and then join us!
