Today I created a shadow box using a new LaBlanche stamp that will be released next month. The name of this stamp is "Spring Posy". The image was colored with Copic markers. A second image was stamped and the posies along the bottom of the image were colored and cut out. These were attached to the back of the top of the shadow box to give the image dimension.
The top of the shadow box was covered with a piece of yellow stripped design paper from a new "Dots and Strips" paper pack from Joan's Gardens. You will love the two paper packs shown above because they are full of dots and striped papers. The largest Spellbinders, "Fleur De Lis Rectangles" die was cut and placed around the opening in the shadow box. This die does not cut an opening in the center but I just used a craft knife and cut along the edge of the die before removing the piece from the die. Yellow posies were created using the large daisy punch shown in the photo above. They were punched out using white card stock and sponged with yellow ink. For each flower, two daisies were shaped with the tools in the Flower Tool Kit and glued together. A mixture of black and brown Flower Soft was added to the center of the punched flowers as well as the flowers in the stamped design. Green Cheery Lynn Ferns were added under the punched flowers. These leaves come two to a package, each facing a different direction. A pretty yellow silk bow was added to complete this shadow box.
You can preorder this cute LaBlanche stamp, and purchase all other supplies used on this card, from Joan's Gardens.
