Love What You Do, You're Inspiring, Birthday Card, 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I had made a card a couple of weeks ago and I lost the focal piece. I had cut the Whisper White piece, added the Designer Series Paper (DSP) and even wrapped the black Baker's twine around it and tied a know.  Then I went on to do some other things and when I got back to my workroom I couldn't find the piece I had created so I could stamp on it.  That card I am referring to can be seen here.  Anyway, today while I was putting some stamp sets away on my messy worktable I ran across that ready to stamp piece and this is what I did with it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Gorgeous Grape card stock.  On top of that is a piece of Whisper White card stock that was cut 3-1/2" x 4-3/4".  A 1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Highland Heather DSP was added to the left. Along the edge of the DSP I tied a piece of black Baker's twine.  

I stamped the flowers image from the "Love What You Do" set using black Memento ink. I colored them with the Highland Heather marker. I colored in the flowers and then using the same marker I just colored over the bottoms of the flowers and a bit on the inside of some of the top petals.  Coloring over the same color darkened the color just enough to give it a shadow look.  

The words are from the "You're Inspiring" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I taped the focal piece to the card base and I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside and the card was done!!  Quick and fun!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
