Dotty Background Card

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today.

Today’s offering is the first of two cards using the same stamped dotty strips.  The two cards are very different though, as you will see with the second card tomorrow.

The dotty stamp is included with the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set, and at first this particular stamp was overlooked by me in favour of others in the set.  

To start, I used some Whisper White cardstock strips which were off cuts from other projects, cutting them to 1” in width.  I inked up the dotty stamp in Highland Heather ink and randomly stamped all over a strip until suitably covered.  This was repeated on a second strip with Daffodil Delight ink, and again on a third strip using Rococo Rose ink.  A little tape was placed on the back to hold them together and then cut down to a length of 4 5/8”.  I stuck the dotty panel onto a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock measuring 5 3/8” x 3 5/8”.  I adhered this to a Whisper White card base made from an A4 piece, cut in half and scored in half.

From the same stamp set, I stamped the leafy image in Garden Green onto a piece of Whisper White, along with the small flowers in Real Red and Highland Heather.  This was the die cut using the largest oval shape in the Stitched Shape Dies.  The larger central flower was stamped in Rococo Rose, then punched out with the Small Blooms Punch, which was then adhered to the oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, stamped in Pretty Peacock ink onto Whisper White cardstock and backed with a mat using Pretty Peacock cardstock.
