Lots of Lavender Sale-a-bration Card Tutorial

Hi Friends! Well, as predicted, we did indeed get a pile of snow last night! This was the first time we actually had to use our plow truck to clear the drive. I think we've been quite lucky, actually, as our winter has been very mild so far. Here are some photos I took a couple of days ago (and it was +16 degrees):

...and this morning (minus 5 degrees)...
Big difference! It's so pretty outside.

It may cold and snowy, but it's hard not to have Spring on your mind when creating cards with the "Lots of Lavender" Sale-a-bration stamp set! For this card, I also used the "Yay You" Host Reward stamp set, which I love! The fonts on the sentiments are awesome and of course, so are all the stamps in this set.

  • Early Espresso: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", 4 ¼” x 2 ¾”
  • Whisper White: 4” x 5 ¼”, 4” x 2 ½”
  • Tempting Turquoise: 4 ½” x 3”
  • Vellum: 4 ½” x 1” (two strips)

  1. Fold Early Espresso card stock in half to create card base.
  2. Glue 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White card stock layer to front of card.
  3. Stamp large flower image from “Lots of Lavender” set with Early Espresso Ink.
  4. Ink the solid flower image with Sweet Sugarplum and stamp over the lavender.
  5. Ink leaves and stems with Garden Green and stamp over image.
  6. Ink ribbon with Tempting Turquoise and stamp over image.
  7. Randomly colour in flower petals with Berry Burst Stampin' Write Marker.
  8. Cover entire image with Clear Wink of Stella.
  9. Stamp sentiment from “Yay You” set with Early Espresso.
  10. Glue stamped layer onto 4 ¼” x 2 ¾” Early Espresso card stock. Adhere to 4 ½” x 3” Tempting Turquoise card stock. Use SNAIL to add to front of card.
  11. Cut vellum strips with Decorative Ribbon Punch. Use a bit of SNAIL to adhere along each side of layered stamp image, as shown on sample.
  12. Place a small rhinestone on centre of stamped bow.
