Forever Lovely Bundle

My project for the blog hop today uses the same products as my project in the tutorial bundle, however it is a totally different project.  Remember my project here today is not the project in the tutorial. The projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and you won’t see them anywhere else.

Here is a sneak peek of my project in the tutorial bundle.

Sneak Peek January

The Forever Lovely Bundle naturally brings soft florals to mind.  However my tutorial project uses striking, monochromatic blues which pop against the white background.  In contrast, my card project for the blog hop today has a totally different feel. The large expanse of black is a dramatic foil for the rainbow florals. It is great to see how you can get two totally different looks with the same stamp set.

The long floral edgelit die is used to cut the long edge of the Basic Black piece of card. It is a separate piece of card, which is adhered to the front of a Whisper White thick folded card front. I had to run the die through twice to cut the whole length. It is a bit tricky as there is the little straight bits at each end of the die. The trick is to position the end of the die off the edge of the cutting platform.  I know right … it sounds totally painful, but it works and the end result is worth it.

The Stamparatus was invaluable in stamping the flowers into place on the Whisper White card front. I created an index image on poly sheet for both the outside foliage bit and the solid floral images, so that I could get the flowers to show correctly (to a degree) behind the die cut.  I coloured the flowers individually with sponge daubers, and the Stamparatus also helps greatly with this process.

Before I adhered the black layer in place, I white embossed the little “Love You” greeting and then used one of the fabulous word dies from the Well Written Framelits Dies, diecut in Melon Mambo and using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet for ease of adhering the very fine die cut onto the card.  The little hearts are also from the Well Written Framelits Die set.

I stamped the flowers to the inside of the card, and then added one of the greeting phrases from the Well Said stamp set to finish it off.
