Hello friends, I’m happy to be participating in an Instagram Hop today, but for those of you not on that platform, I wanted to make sure you also got to see the adorable Mini Delight; Petite Posy release for September!
This monthly subscription kit is one of my favorites; it’s got a great price point and the designs are always super cute and versatile.
As pictured above, the kit this month consists of an outline stamp, two filler stamps, a cute greeting stamp and a coordinating die.
To begin creating my card, I drew a light pencil line in a rectangle on my folded card base. Then I used that as a guide to stamp the outline posy stamp multiple times within that space.
I used an offset stamping technique to fill in all the leaves with 5 different shades of green ink – Olive, Forest Glades, Fresh Leaf, Parrot and Grass Field. I repeated that step with the bloom filler stamp, but took card to stamp perfectly within the bloom outline. I used 5 different shades of red ink again; Coral Bliss, Coral Berry, Cotton Candy, Crimson and Heart Beat inks.
I used a 0.8 Multiliner pen and a straight-edge to draw the rectangle perfectly straight, then erased the pen lines once I was absolutely sure both pen and stamp inks were dry. I stamped the sentiment below and then used the dot stamp (intended for the flower center) to fill in the background with polka dots.
This is a quick and simple card to do, and as a one layer card uses minimal paper and adhesive supplies. There are prizes to be drawn for a giveaway, but all that happens over on Instagram. Head on over to @norinehope and follow the hop from there for a chance to win!
Thank you so much for visiting today and enjoy the Instagram Hop!
