I recently purchased a new stamp set from GinaK. It is "A Year of Flowers" by Melanie Muenchinger. I love this set because it has lots of beautiful flowers. The background on this card was done with an emboss resist technique. I stamped the SU Filigree background with VersaMark ink then clear embossed it. I used Mellow Moss ink and sponge daubers for the color. I then did an emboss resist for the tulips. I stamped the flowers and leaves with VersaMark and Clear embossed. I used sponge daubers and Pretty in Pink and Mellow Moss to color. I used a long rectangle nestie to cut out the left border and ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Dotted Swiss embossing folder. I arranged the flowers on the border and tied a ribbon (from SU) to tie together. Many of the tulips are on dimensionals. The verse is from the A Year of Flowers set and I used a nestie to cut it out. I then sponged the Mellow Moss on before removing it from the nestie. It is attached with dimensionals. I added a few pearls to give it a finished look.
