I have been playing today with the fantastic new Picnic for You stamp set. This is going to be such a versatile set and I have plans to use it for my Adult Education event in March; so watch this space……
For today’s’ card I focused on the leafy sprig and flower stamps rather than the more obvious picnic basket and food stamps. I am saving these for another day.
I started with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 5⅞” by 2” and stamped the leafy sprig image in Garden Green ink randomly all over it. I added the larger flower image in Flirty Flamingo ink and the smaller flower image in Peakaboo Peach ink, 1st and 2nd generation to add a little more texture.
I adhered a 5⅞” by ⅜” strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock to the left hand side of the Very Vanilla panel using Tombow Liquid Adhesive and a strip of Peakaboo Peach cardstock the same size to the right hand side leaving a smaller border. I wasn’t happy with the panel as it didn’t stand out enough. I added a ¼” strip of Garden Green cardstock behind the Peakaboo Peach piece which pulled the panel together nicely.
I added a 5⅞” piece of Lace Trim to the right hand side for some added texture. I stamped the sentiment from the Picnic With You stamp set in Garden Green ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and die cut it using the Layering Ovals dies and added it to a Flirty Flamingo scalloped oval cut from the same set.
I added the stamped panel to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added the sentiment to the right side. I thought about adding some Basic Pearls but decided against it as I really like the clean lines of the card. Let me know what you think!
