The Stamp Simply Store - You Make Me Smile Spring Daisy Card with Distress Oxide Inks

Hello everyone!  Happy Friday on this beautiful day!  It is so nice to have some warmer sunny days and see all of the beautiful flowers blooming.  Today, I have a card to share with you that is bursting with beautiful blooms.

Here is the card I designed using the Altenew Clear Stamps - Spring Daisy.  This stamp set is a layering set with the flower images and the outlines.  I thought this stamp set would be good to use with the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks.  Because the ink is a fusion of dye and pigment inks it works wonderfully to get nice solid and crisp images.  I used both the large and small daisy and one of the leaf stamps in the set.  For the inks I used  Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks - Worn LipstickFossilized AmberSpiced MarmaladeCracked PistachioVintage Photo.  Then for the outline of the flowers I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I stamped the images on to a piece of white cardstock.  Then I lightly spritzed some water on to the flowers and leaves.  I knew I wasn't going to be using a lot of water so I just used white cardstock and not watercolor paper.  I used a paper towel to blot up the excess water and it left little water droplet marks on the flowers and leaves.  You could skip this step if you wanted to.  I just like the look and the added interest of the droplet marks.  For the sentiment I used the Altenew Clear Stamps - Halftone Smile and  Altenew - Halftone Smile Die.  I used the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks - Fossilized Amber for the You Make Me part of the sentiment and the Worn Lipstick on the word Smile. I love that these inks are opaque enough to use on dark cardstock!  I die cut the word smile and then cut the other part of the sentiment into a strip and fussy cut banner ends on each side.  I added some 3D Foam Squares to the sentiment for a bit of dimension.

I added the card front to an A2 black top folding card base and that finishes off the card.

Thanks so much for joining me today!  If you would like to see more inspiration from the design team members please visit the Stamp Simply Blog.  Also don't forget to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for all of your paper crafting goodies.
