Lots of Lavender

     I have been going through my stamp sets both old and new, featuring them either on my YouTube channel or here on my blog. Today, it's my turn to play with my Lots of Lavender stamp set! This is a beautiful stamp set that's exclusive to Sale-a-Bration, so if you don't have it yet, you only have til end of March to get it for free!

     For this card, I decided to color my lavenders in. No Blends? No problem! I unfortunately don't own the Stampin' Blends (yet), but not to worry since I can use both my Aqua Painters and Blender Pens to easily add color to any project! I painted my lavenders using my Aqua Painter...I just put some Perfect Plum ink onto my acrylic block and used it as my palette. Next I wanted to add details to my flowers so I put a drop of Rich Razzleberry ink refill onto my block and dabbed my Blender pen on it...instant marker!

     For the leaves I stamped them first with the Lemon Lime Twist before putting shading on with my blender pen using Old Olive ink refill. When all of my coloring is done, I made a mask of my flowers using Magic Cover (a transparent shelf liner that I got from the Dollar Store...kinda like a transparent Contact Paper). I used this material because I can trace around my images for creating my mask.

     I covered my flowers with the mask and stamped my Hardwood background with my Crumb Cake ink pad. I then sponged the edges with the same ink. 
     Finally for the sentiment, I die-cut my 'label' piece of Crumb Cake cardstock from the Rose Garden Thinlits set, used Early Espresso to stamp my sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set and clear heat embossed it. The leaf stems are die cuts from Everyday Jars Framelits. It doesn't show well in the picture but I also used my Wink of Stella on my sentiment for additional shimmer.
     And that is my card for today crafters! Hope you liked this one, I had lots of fun creating it! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a lovely day! See you next time!



  1. Beautiful card, thank you for sharing

  2. Lovely card. How do you keep the contact paper from sticking to your cardstock? I would be afraid of tearing.
    May I case your card, with credit to you if course.

    1. Hi Dianne. The adhesive on the Magic Cover is not that sticky...that being said I did stick it on my arm first to remove some of the stickiness just to be safe. I didn't have any problems removing it at all. And you can absolutely case my card, have fun! :)
