My 2nd "Happy" card was fun to piece together. The "You Are My Happy" Close To My Heart My Arcylix stamp set is SUPER versatile and useful.
For this card I used pattern #23 (rotated) from the Make It From Your Heart Vol 2. I then used Frosted grey CS for my base and the diamond pattern from the Frosted paper pack. I also used Sorbet and Slate CS. I stamped the sentiment "Hugs Kisses and Best Wishes" from the "You Are My Happy" stamp set and the large flower twice. I also used the faux stitching from the Stitch Wonder stamp set on the patterned paper. I then inked the flowers with Exclusive Inks makers: the light shade of Cranberry, dark shade of Honey and dark shade of Lagoon. Now, I could have cut the flowers out using my Cricut and the Art Philosophy cartridge, BUT I had to fussy cut. Now, don't get me wrong, I use my Cricut all the time to cut out my stamped images, but sometimes, I just can't help myself and I have to grab my micro-tips and go to cuttin'!
Here you can see the different shading and blending I did the the markers and popped those flowers right on up. To embellish I used the Silver Glitter paper (I could have also used the Silver Shimmer trim) Then I added grey opaques and Base and Bling Floral accents.
