A Flowery Thank You

Last Friday I made a FaceBook Live Video showing how I made this card. (Click on the link to go to my page then click on Videos then my June 29 video.)  I have fun making the videos but it does take a bit of prep and I do get a bit comedic.

I made the card on the left on the video and the one on the right at Convention.  I didn't follow directions at Convention.  I think I was just a bit tired by the time we got to the Make N Take session and did leave a bit early. I wanted to use all of our great new colors of card stocks from the Good Life Bundle and definitely got a whole different look.

The card on the right I adhered the Whip Cream panel to the back of the Oatmeal Cookie front instead of the the back inside.  And I used the Dauber Dowel to color swirls on a piece of Whip Cream to stamp the flowers.  The colors are very vibrant.

Card on the Left Products Used:
Stamps: Cottage Bouquet Bundle and Many Thanks AT
Card stocks: Whip Cream, Oatmeal Cookie, and the Good Life Bundle
Ink: Black Licorice
Silk: Black Licorice
Sequins: Special Celebrations
Tools: Details Pro Shears, Platinum machine, White Liner Tape, Foam Squares

Card on the Right Products Used:
Stamps: same
Card stocks: only Oatmeal Cookie and Whip Cream
Inks: Black Licorice, Rich Coral, Watermelon Fusion, Citrus Cooler, Beach Breeze, and Lemon Grass
Coloring & Mediums: Lemon Drop and Cool Pool Liquid Colors
Silk: Black Licorice
Sequins: Special Celebrations
Tools: same AND Dauber Dowel Large and pads

Here you can see how the cover is not attached to the Whip Cream inside and the sentiment is hidden behind it inside.

And the card with the Whip Cream panel adhered to the back of the card front.  I think either way looks good but the top one has a better look to me.

What do you think??

And I want to share a great YouTube video with you of a recap of our Fun Stampers Journey 4th Annual Convention last month if Phoenix, Arizona.

I hope this works as I embedded it directly from YouTube. If not you can search YouTube for it by looking for Fun Stampers Journey Better Together Annual Convention 2018.  If you watch close you will get a couple glimpses of a little green Secret Agent Man, the team mascot for our Fabulous Bloomin' Inkers team!
