Today’s hop features the new set Lean on Me, Thatched Banner Plain Jain, Pointed Flowers and Dreamy Leaves Dies and I managed to fit all of them into my card today. I’m feeling pretty stoked about that! The sentiment and flowers are for the gorgeous Lean on Me set. There are so many great sentiments on this set, you will just love it. Before I stamped the sentiment I stamped the Thatched Banner Plain Jane on kraft paper in Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I stamped the leaves from Dream Big onto paper from MME’s Lost and Found Market Street using more Frayed Burlap. I die cut the flowers using the new Pointed Flowers Die and the leaves using the Dreamy Leaves Die. To give the flowers a bit of dimension I created shadow on the flower layer using W7, W5, W3, W1 Copic Markers and then stamped the flower centers on pink paper, cut them out and popped them up on foam tape. The flowers are mounted on different thicknesses of foam tape to give even more dimension. To accent it I added a bit of May Arts Burlap Thread with the ends tacked down with a bit of glue to keep them in place and distressed a few edges with Frayed Burlap and a distress tool.

Don’t miss out on the Anni-VERVE-sary sale going on now!
