Wonderful Nestie Flowers

Good Thursday Morning Peeps!! Hope you all are having a good week so far. It is almost the weekend!!!

Today's card is made with this weeks sketch on Splitcoast.

Again I am trying to use some more of the new in-colors, instead of rich razzleberry. This time I chose Bermuda Bay, I haven't gotten my new ink pad yet so I knew I would have to co-ordinate another color with it. So, I went to my new DS pack Thoroughly Modern and chose some colors from there.

On the first card I did sneak in a little bit of rich razzzleberry! I started the card with a base of Bermuda Bay and followed it with some GP white, (I use some of that cheap white cardstock when I am just layering, not for stamping on) I then followed that with some of the DS paper from the Thoroughly Modern DS paper. The next strip layer is made up of rich razzleberry and then more of the DS paper. I tied some of the Bermuda bay polka dot grosgrain ribbon arond the middle.

I stamped the sentiment, from the All Holidays Stamp Set, with rich razzleberry onto some PTI white cardstock, it is layered with more Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I pierced all around the edges with my piercing tool and mat pack.

I used my scallop circle nesties to make my flower for the circle element in the sketch. I cut two scallops out of the Bermuda bay and one small circle out of some scrap Shara Sand. I then ran all of those through my cuttlebug with the swiss dot embossing folder. I used some tempting turquoise ink to sponge around the edges to add a bit of depth. I used my paper snips to cut in toward the middle of the flower at each scallop. The center Shara Sand circle was glued on before cutting the petals. I put the two layers of the petals together with a few dimensionals. The flower was then glued directly to the base.

I mounted the sentiment piece over the flower with more dimensionals. I then added some sticky white pearls to the corners.

This next one is made in just the same manner but I change the colors to Rose Red for the flower and ink for the sentiment.

I added some very small sticky pearls to the center of this flower.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
