Step By Step Instructions

Here are the step by step instructions to making this handmade card with To A Wild Rose stamp set.

  • Stamp your circle from the Shapes stamp set in Bermuda ink along the side of a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″).
  • Squeeze your Old Olive ink pad tight so that you are transferring ink onto the inside of the lid of your ink pad.  Pick up ink from the lid using your Aqua Painter.  Hold it over your Whisper White card stock and flick ink downward creating your spray.
  • Stamp the outline of your ink leaf in Old Olive ink.
  • Stamp the inside of your leaf in Pear Pizzazz ink.
  • Punch out your leaf using a 2-1/4″ Circle Punch.
  • Stamp “hello” in Bermuda Bay ink onto a piece of Whisper White (2-1/8″ x 3/4″).
  • Create a banner on one end of your Old Olive strip of card stock (7/8″ x 3-1/4″), also a Bermuda Bay strip (3/4″ x 3″), and then on your stamped “hello” piece.
  • Assemble your card as shown, your card base is Bermuda Bay (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″).
  • Finish with Pearls and a bow tied in Linen Thread.

TIP #1:  When doing your ink spray, start with your Aqua Painter way high up, like a foot above your card stock.  This will give you a finer mist.  As you move closer to your card stock the ink will fall in larger droplets.  I like to have a good mix of fine drops and larger drops.

TIP #2:  Don't be really concerned with the size of your banners.  This is a great time to use up scraps!
