Folksy Florals with Laura

by Laura

Hello everyone!

Laura here and today I have a project to share with you featuring the Folksy Florals Stamp Set.

Altenew-Folksy FloralI used several images from the Folksy Florals Stamp Set to build a sort of symmetrical folk art design. Using the MISTI makes it easy to position your stamp, rotate it, and stamp it again, getting a perfectly symmetrical placement.

Altenew-Folksy FloralTo give the images a gradient look, I inked them up using a light and dark ink in the same color family. You don't have to do this step, but I just like how it looks. The possibilities are endless with how you ink your images and the color combinations you create.

Altenew-Folksy FloralI used the Folksy Florals Stamp Set for the sentiment as well and popped up the panel onto a yellow card base.

To finish it off, I added a few enamel accents in coordinating colors.

Altenew-Folksy FloralHere's a video to show you how I created this card.

I’m left handed and I use my MISTI the opposite way. I wish I could find a good pair of left handed scissors ( seriously, someone could make a fortune if they made some of this stuff just for southpaws. Rethink those ruler numbers people!), I have tried all the big names and they don’t work well. Your card is SO pretty!

Laura Bassen, you are truly a card making genius. This card is simply captivating.

P.S I think I’m gonna take that Einstein quote and hang it on the wall in my happy crafting space.

Stunning card. I really love the color combo. BTW, I am right handed and use my MISTI with the door to the right so I’m not crossing over my design with an ink pad.
