Inspiring Iris - Hopping Around The World Blog Hop
Hello and welcome to another Hopping Around The World Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Melanie in Germany or are starting here with me, we have some lovely ideas to share with you this month.
You will need:
21 cm x 14.5 cm ww thick - scored at 10.5 cm
10 cm x 14 cm Granny Apple Green - trimmed to 9.5 cm x 13.5 cm after embossing
13.5 cm x 10 cm ww thick
The colours I used:
The stamping and colouring:
Stamp the image towards the bottom of the thick ww panel using Memento ink and colour with Stampin' Blends. I had a 'quick' look on Pinterest to get an idea of the colours to use but it seems that you can find these very elegant flowers in all sorts of colours!
The images I found on Pinterest all showed yellow centres so I dabbed a Daffodil Delight (dark) Blend around in the centre of each flower.
Emboss the piece of Granny Apple Green card with the Tasteful Textures embossing folder. Trim the panel to measure 9.5 cm x 13.5 cm and adhere to the card base using Tombow. Stamp the sentiment using Night of Navy ink and attach the panel with dimensionals.
I stamped the Iris with Memento ink and then added colour using the other images in the stamp set on the inside of the card and the envelope.
The completed project:
I was in the mood to colour when I created this project but you could just as easily use the two step stamping technique on the front too.
With a change of sentiment this project would also make a pretty birthday card or a notelet.
I will be having a look at some of the other stamps in my collection to see if they would be suitable for similar projects.
