Happy Friday Morning! Are you ready for the weekend? Today I have a flowers and hugs card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! My Meadow stamp set with the lovely sentiment from the Abstract Impressions stamp set – If flowers were hugs, I’d send you a thousand. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I started by embossing a Crumb Cake panel with the Coastal Weave embossing folder and adhering it to a Crumb Cake card base. I cut a frame with the Stitched Rectangles dies from Pretty Peacock card stock and adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue. I cut a panel of the pretty Peacock paper from the Woven Threads designer series paper with the second largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
Then I went to work with the stamps in the Stampin’ Up! My Meadow stamp set, a bunch of ink pads and a small panel of Whisper White card stock. First I stamped the little bridge in Soft Suede. Then the stream in Seaside Spray – I stamped several times to make a little winding brook. I stamped the rocks using both rock stamps in Crumb Cake ink. I used the same rocks stamps to create a little path to and from the bridge, but with Smoky Slate ink. I also used Smoky Slate ink to stamp the clouds after stamping off. I stamped the tree trunks in Gray Granite ink and used the little round dots to create Spring leaves on the tops of the trees with Pear Pizzazz ink. I used the larger background stamps to create a light wash of Pear Pizzazz on the ground after stamping off each time. I stamped flowers in Blushing Bride and Highland Heather, and small dotted flowers in daffodil delight. Finally, I stamped the grass sprigs in pear pizzazz. I used my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Write marker to extend the brook beyond the bridge and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend to create something rocks next to the brook. Finally, I used a sponge dauber to sponge in a little Balmy Blue in the sky (it’s a little hard to see). I cut it out with the second largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
I adhered the panel to the Pretty Peacock scalloped rectangle on an angle with multipurpose liquid glue and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Abstract Impressions stamp set on a strip of Crumb Cake card stock using Pretty Peacock ink and trimmed the end. I cut a decorative strip from the Nature’s Thoughts dies from Pretty Peacock ink and adhered it to the bottom of the label with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the label to the card with dimensionals. I cut the little sprig from the Nature’s Thoughts dies from Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Highland Heather card stock and adhered them to the side of the card. I cut the little butterfly from the Nature’s Thoughts dies and adhered it to the top. I finished off the card front with a White and Linen ribbon bow.
On the inside of the card, I stamped another little bridge and path scene in the corner of a Whisper White Panel using the same colors as the card front. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.
Today’s little meadow scene has a little brook, bridge and wildflowers. The Stampin’ Up! My Meadow stamp set has several other stamps that can be used to create other peaceful retreats – more trees, a cute wheel barrow and a little gazebo. So close your eyes and imagine your perfect place and then bring it to life with the Stampin’ Up! My Meadow stamp set.
