Simple Scallop Shape Card

Hello everyone, thanks so much for joining me today! I have a fun, shaped card to share using the new A Happy Little Thought stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs!

I really love this new stamp set from Newton’s Nook, don’t you??? The fun, doodled look is adorable and I thought it would be fun to watercolor it using my distress inks. I used a combination of Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Mustard Seed, Abandoned Coral, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive and Tea Dye for all the watercoloring. At times I mixed the colors together to create other shades, and then other times I just used a straight color of ink; there wasn’t a real plan for where the color went on each flower. The only “planned” part of this process what using a palette of colors that went well together! The images used are all stamped from the A Happy Little Thought set, other then the butterflies which were from the Hello Spring stamp set.

After coloring the images I die cut everything out with coordinating dies, except for the butterflies; those were fussy cut. I layered them up with foam tape onto a white circle that I had stamped my sentiment onto (also from A Happy Little Thought) and then added Spectrum Noir clear sparkle to the largest flowers, the bow and the butterflies.

My circle panel was then mounted onto a scalloped circle card base. The card base was created with pink cardstock that I die cut using the Lawn Fawn Scallop Circle Stackables dies; after die cutting two scallop circles, I scored the one scallop circle (the piece that would become the backside of the card) at about 1/2 of an inch from the top-most scallop. I added adhesive above the score line and then adhered the unsecured scallop circle (the front side) to the back. I also stamped the front of the card using a woodgrain background cling stamp.

And to finish off my card, I wanted to add a few Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow sequins; I love how adding them in the direction that the butterflies are going helps the card flow and creates a sense of movement.

    So pretty! Love the sketch look of the flower wreath and a non-traditional round shape of the card and, of course, gorgeous watercoloring!
