Last week my daughter Jessie celebrated a birthday. Of course I had to make her a card. Just a few days earlier, Jessie had made an announcement on Facebook using this picture and words.
Sagan, Mommy, and Daddy are excited to announce that we are having a little pumpkin due March 2021! Sagan is going to be the best big sister to a little SISTER!!!
YES! I'M GOING TO BE GRAMMIE AGAIN!!!
One of the pictures also showed them in another field of flowers with lots of colors. I accepted the challenge.
I'm using the Jar of Flowers bundle for this card.
I started with a card base of Mango Melody. Mind you, I hardly ever use this color. Brights are not my thing. This color was really the only choice. It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.
Next, use a piece of Whisper White cut to 4 x 5 1/4. To stamp the background, you will need to make a mask. Do this by stamping the flowers on a sticky pad. Make sure that part of the image is on the sticky part. Cut this out on the lines. This isn't the easiest image to cut. Keep your mask in your stamp case when done just in case you need it again. It will save time! You will only need to stamp around the outer edges of the layer. The middle will be covered. I started in the lower left corner and stamped in Memento Black. Now this ink will smudge so be careful and don't get in a hurry. Work your way up the left edge. Mask and stamp the image above and repeat until done.
Stamp across the right side starting again at the bottom and working your way up to the top.
Now still using the mask work your way across the top and the bottom.
Let dry a little. Color in with the following blends: Flirty Flamingo combo, Light Old Olive, Light Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler combo, Dark Soft Suede, and Mango Melody combo. You will need to adlib a little when coloring the images. Trust me, it will come out great!
Cut a frame from Mango Melody card stock using the Stitched Rectangles dies. I've sent the card so I can't remember which dies I used. I did skip a die between. Cut a piece of Whisper White with the die that is between. Add the white rectangle to the center of the card. Add the mango frame using Foam Adhesive Sheets. Just cut about 3/4 inch strips.
Stamp the jar in Memento Black on white. The Jar of Flowers stamp set is a reversible set. Use the smooth side of the stamp that shows the water level. Stamp off Pool Party and then stamp on the bottom of the jar. Clean the stamp and turn it over. With a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker color in the top two curved lines. This will show the top of the water in the jar. Stamp.
Stamp the stems in Memento Black. Make sure the stems go all the way to the top of the jar. Color in with a Light Old Olive blend. Punch this out with the Jar punch. Add with dimensionals.
Stamp the flower bouquet in Black Memento on white. Color with the same blends as above. Add a little Wink of Stella to some of the flowers. Fussy cut and add with dimensionals.
The saying comes from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set. Stamp in Early Espresso. Cut out the tag using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box dies. Add to the card.
Attach a Linen Thread bow with a rolled up glue dot.
The little pumpkin of course refers to our announcement. The image comes from the Gather Together bundle.
Here's the inside of the card. The saying is from Itty Bitty Birthdays.
I hope that Jessie loved her card. I'm sure she did. I sure enjoyed making it for her! I do love the look of a field of flowers.
