One of my new years arty goals for this year is to get back into stamping. So once a month, one of my weekly posts for the Fruit Pixie's blog and Facebook page will be a stamped project and here is the first one!
It was my parents 56th wedding anniversary a few days ago and this is the card I made for them. Of course Valentines day is just around the corner so this would be a lovely card for that too or even for a summer wedding card.
The stamp kit I was working with was the Visible Image Immortal Love set ( link below ).
To begin with the background. I cut a piece of white card slightly smaller then my 5x7 card blank.
I took the damask stamp from the set and stamped it may times to make the background using the Distress ink milled lavender.
For the roses arrangement I stamped the large rose once and the smaller rose 3 times onto a patterned paper using distress ink pumice stone.
I then cut them out.
I made the card by first using a border punch from Mather Stewart and then layered the roses up using some 3D foam.
I cut some heart shaped leaves using a die and poked them into the rose arrangement.
I then stamped the "love" and "is forever" stamps onto the background using more of the Distress ink pumice stone.
I added a little stickles glitter to the centre of the roses and inked around the edges of the card front with both the milled lavender and the pumice stone.
I then mounted my card front onto my card blank to finish.
I hope you enjoyed my stamped project. If you have been inspired and would like to purchase the things I used, you can find them in the Fruit Pixie's shop using the links below.
