Ok, on to my card! I have a Sneak Peek for you using the NEW Sl38 Art Blooms stamp set from Crafty Secrets.Art Blooms stamp set is FULL of Beautiful floral images, leaves, butterfly, bird and sentiments. To start I stamped floral images, vines and leaves from the Art Blooms stamp set onto Simply Smooth Ivory cardstock using Lilac Posies ink.Then I inked the edges with the same ink.I added a strip of black cardstock and layered it with a piece of patterned paper from The Black Currant Stack from DCWV and place it on the card front. Then I added Sweet Chips Chipboard corner accents from Crafty Secrets. The Sweet Chips started out white and I rubbed my black ink pad over them to get a good coverage. Then I used Copic marker 100 Black to do the edging. I stamped the Smile sentiment with Tuxedo Black ink and used the same ink to color the Sweet Chips frame. I added black pom-pom trim and stamped one of the flower images three times, hand cut and inked the edges with Lilac Posies ink. I added glitter to the all of the flowers, pearl sprays and rhinestones. Here is a close up of the flowers.
