Botanical Layers - Thinking Of You

Hello stampers,

I had a bit of fun playing with a set that is in the Annual Catalog, but is currently a FREE item for Sale-A-Bration.

I don't really gravitate to purples, but I decided to try my hand at using 3 of them in this card. I started with a Basic White Cardstock layer then stamped the floral looking stamp in the Botanical Layers Stamp Set using the thumping technique which is coloring the stamp with a light color then thumping other colors using Stampin' Write Markers on top. For this technique, I used Highland Heather & Old Olive as the base then thumped Gorgeous Grape & Blackberry Bliss on top before gluing it to a Blackberry Bliss Cardstock layer. I really like using this technique on trees for a "fall" look. I also used a sentiment from the set using Gorgeous Grape Ink on Basic White Cardstock which I punched out with a retired 1 1/4" Circle Punch & then adhered it to a Blackberry Bliss Cardstock that I punched out with a retired 1 3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch. Next, I took a layer of Gorgeous Grape Cardstock & embossed it using the Softly Sophisticated 3D Embossing Folder which is part of a Sale-A-Bration bundle that is FREE with a $100 order. To assemble, I used Highland HeatherCardstock for the base, followed by the embossed layer down the center, the stamped image & sentiment were then added using Stampin' Dimensionals. Lastly, I added a few Purple Shimmer Gems to finish off the card.
