Turning a negative into a positive

As you know, there is more than one way to use a Stampin’ Up! product.  This card featuring the Field of Flowers Bundle, is a great example of this.  Today, we’ll be turning a negative int a positive!

Color Palette

I chose this color palette because I really wanted the look of “chalk board art for the sentiment and I wanted the flowers to “pop”.  If you’re like most people, when you look at the Confetti Flowers Border Punch, you see a punch that can be used to punch out a bunch of flowers.

While you certainly can use the Confetti Flowers Border Punch to punch out  flowers and attach them to your project, I chose to use the “negative” flowers as a bit of a border.  I attached Whisper White cardstock to the back of the Basic Black so we now have some dimensional interest.

Measurements

  • Bumble Bee: 4-1/4″ x 11″ score at 5-1/2″ and 1-1/4” x ¼” for banner

Instructions:

  • Fold card base in half on score line and attach larger Basic Black layer to front of card with Stampin’ Seal Adhesive.
  • Use the Confetti Flowers Border Punch to punch flowers out from along the top edge of the smaller Basic Black piece. Punch it once to the right edge of cardstock and once to the left edge of cardstock to get a long row of punched out flowers. Keep the negative punched piece of Basic Black (not the punched-out flowers).  The white flowers shown in the photo are from the Whisper White layer of card stock behind the Black.
  • Stamp “Always” with VersaMark Ink and emboss with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the heat Tool.
  • Tie a bow with the Bumble Bee Gingham Ribbon and wrap the tails of the ribbon around the Basic Black card stock securing them to the back side with Stampin’ Seal
  • Attach stamped Basic Black layer to Whisper White card stock with Stampin’ Seal then attach Whisper White layer to card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp “my friend” with Memento ink on small Bumblebee cardstock and cut a notch in one end to make it a banner. Then attach the banner to the card as shown.
  • Color 12 of the Pearl Basic Jewels with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker and attach them to the center of each flower.
