Silhouette Flower Number 1

I belong to a little group of cardmakers, who meet once a month, and we usually set ourselves a theme or project for each meeting.  During one session we had a Stampin Up class taken by Kara Milne.

Kara's class was based around the Stampin Up set of stamps Just Believe and we made four different cards using different techniques, colourways and cardstock but with the same set of stamps.  Following the class we decided that we would set ourselves the challenge to choose one of our own stamps and see what we could create with it, using Kara's class as inspiration.  I really enjoyed this challenge and I hope you will enjoy looking at some of theposts of cards I made using the Hero Arts Clings Stamp - Silhouette Flower CG105.

The first one is really simple.  The base card is made from a sheet of pale blue A4 cardstock cut down and creased to make a 14.85mm x 14.85mm card.  The stamp was inked with versamark ink and stamped onto the same light blue cardstock as the base card.  When the image was dry it was trimmed, still leaving a border of the light blue card around it. It was then matted and layered alternately onto dark and light blue cardstock, wrapping a length of ribbon around it before it was attached to the final dark blue layer and then finally onto the base card.  Some of the daisy centres are highlighted with self adhesive pearls and a bow is attached to the ribbon.  The sentiment is stamped from a Stampin' Up set, Sincere Salutations, and die cut and layered using nestabilities dies.

The base card is a blue 14.85cm square card.
