Today I've been playing with the the Forever Blossoms stamp set... 

yes its been around for a while.  but I love this whole set.

For me November is a month for red flowers... yes usually its poppies and don't get me wrong I love poppies... I just thought I would colour these flowers in Real Red and look how lovely they are..

Here is a card that that I shall be sending out to my customers who order from me this month.

THere are the sizes of the card I used to create this card:

Card base:

Whisper White Thick card: 4-1/8" x 11-3/4", score at 5-7/8" 
Fold and emboss to create an A6 card base

Card front:
Real Red card: 5-5/8" x 3-7/8"
Whisper White card: 5-1/2" x 3-3/4"
Whisper White card: Stitched Oval from Stitched Shapes dies
Whisper White card: shape for sentiment from Hippo and Friends dies

Real Red
Garden Green

How I made this card:

With Garden Green stamp the sentiment from Love of Leaves onto the Hippo and Friends dies.
Stamp the little bud onto shape with Garden Green and ad colour using the light Real Red Stampin' Blends pen.

With Garden Green ink stamp the large flower onto Whisper White card
Add the stitched lines to this piece using the die from th Stiched Leaves die set

Also stamp the same flower onto the Wisper White card stitched oval shape, making sure to stamp the centre portion of the stamp

On the stitched oval shape only:
Colour the flowers with Old Olive light Stampin' Blends pen
Colour the flowers with both the Real Red combo Stampin' Blends
Tip: the stamp set has lots of line detail... use the darker Blends pen to lay down colour onto those shaded area first, then colour over the whole flower and blending in where the first layer colour has been applied.  I used the darker blend to highlight the little dots in the centres of th flowers.

Add dimensionals to the back of the stitched oval and attach this oval shape ov er the stamped flower... making sure to line up the shampes

This creates a spotlight effect, as you can see

Attach the sentiment shape with dimensionals

Thank you so much for coming by today!  I hope you will try the Spotlight technique out.
