If you visited my blog yesterday, you saw the project I created as my entry for the TicTacToeChallenge using the Lots of Lavender stamp set. If you didn’t, you can read that post here. I promised that I would post the Lots of Lavender Tutorial to that project today, and true to my word, here it is.
First the project photo again:
ABOUT THE STAMP SET
The stamp set is the Lots of Lavender stamp set #147194 from the 2018 Sale-A-Bration catalog and it is FREE with a qualifying order of $50 (before tax and shipping). This is an 11 piece photopolymer stamp set and it is a 2-Step Stamp meaning there are 2 stamps to create the layers of the image. The background images fill space in the outline with a watercolor-y wash layer of ink.
Let’s look at the stamps in this stamp set:
Here are card samples that you’ll find in the catalog:
THE LOTS OF LAVENDER TUTORIAL:
I started with a standard card base 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ of Whisper White cardstock. I layered a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock which measures 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ on top of that. A piece of Elegant Eggplant DSP (retired) which measures 2-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ was placed on a diagonal.
For my focal piece panel, I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2-1/4″ x 4-1/2″. I stamped the bouquet outline in Soft Suede ink. I used Wisteria Wonder ink to stamp the floral background, Pear Pizzazz ink for the leaves & stem and Pool Party ink for the bow. This piece was then layered a piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock 2-1/2″ x 4-3/4″. This panel was then adhered on a diagonal on top of the card base. A piece of Tinsel Trim in pink was tied in a bow and held on with a mini glue dot.
Although I designed this card for the TicTacToeChallenge and it called for a project with No Sentiment, you could easily add a sentiment if you really want one. Here I swapped out the bow for a sentiment panel:
“Happy Birthday” was heat embossed in white emboss powder onto a piece of Pool Party cardstock and cropped out the banner shape with the Duet Banner punch.
Which do you like better? With or Without the Sentiment? Leave me a comment and let me know which you prefer. If you want to purchase any of the items I used to make this card, shop here.
