Here is this weeks TT:
I fell in love with these tin boxes. I love the images, colors and patterns on the images.After seeing the trigger this stamp set that I have immediately came to mind:
Here is the card I came up with:
http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/2012/03/cps-258-part-1.html I love this sketch! It is sooo easy to design a card using this sketch. Try it and you will see what I mean.
I started first with the flower embellishment:
I stamped the flower on white glossy paper with Versa Mark ink; let it dry completely then I inked the it with Wild Honey distress ink and punched it with a circle punch. Next I stamped the plaid circle with brown Staz On Ink onto green cardstock and cut it out using Creative Memories Custom Cutting System. I love their circle CCS. I tried cutting it out by hand and didn't like how it looked and stamped a second one. This time I used the CM CCS circle and it came out perfect! I then used a scallop circle punch as a mat in a lighter green. I inked the inside and outside of the plaid circle and the scalloped circle with Walnut Stain Distress ink.
Here's a tip: To ink tight places like the inside of the circle take the pad off of the inking tool and just hold it in your hand to ink tight places.
Next I stamped my sentiment with brown Staz On ink onto white cardstock trimmed the ends to make a banner and inked the edges with Walnut Stain ink.
Now it was time to add the background:
For the border at the top I decided to use a dark brown and used a scalloped border punch and again I thought it too looked to plain so I reached for my favorite embossing folder Swiss Dots and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I tied green and white twine around the border and adhered it to the top of the card and was done.
Not only was I done with the card but I now have all of my Easter cards made and ready to go in Monday mornings mail.
