How Many Stamps?

Last week's One Layer Wednesday card was to make a one layer card using as many different stamps as you can.  You must use at least three; more is better!



The flowers are two step stamping so I used 2 for each flower and 2 for each stem.  Is that over counting?  Then I used the large stamp from the Just Believe, the butterflies from Clearly for You and the Sentiment.  That's seven stamps.

I stamped the tall flowers first using Blushing Bride for the base color and Peach Parfait for the overstamping. The stems are Pear Pizzazz (both the base and overstamp). I masked the pink flowers and inked the large stamp from Just Believe with markers, using Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  The butterflies were stamped in Calypso Coral and I drew in traced the antennae and body with my Basic Black marker.  I added some dots of More Mustard to the center of the big flowers and Peach Parfait to the smaller ones.

I used the Stamp-a-majig a lot for this card!  I've used it so much, I'm even beginning to feel comfortable with it.

I rounded the bottom right corner.  Then I covered it up with my watermark.  Not smart!

All supplies are Stampin' Up!


Card Recipe
Stamps:  Greenhouse Garden, Just Believe, Clearly for You, Thoughts and Prayers
Ink:  Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral, Basic Black, SU Markers (Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Basic Black)
Other:  Stamp-a-majg, Corner Rounder Punch

Can you tell I'm thinking of Spring?  And we may get a little snow tonight.  Finally!  I hope, I hope!

I just noticed that in the picture, the sentiment looks crooked.  IRL it looks straight.  Ah, the miracles of photography.  Usually it's the other way around!

I'm so glad you stopped by to visit.  Your visits make me happy.

Enjoy!
