Good morning fellow crafters!
I'm not sure who stole the month of January out from under us, but it's nearly gone! I've had such fun creating with Melanie Muenchingers stamp set, Stately Flowers 2. This is my last post as Melanie's guest designer, but I will be using this set often!
Along with a card using the Goldenrod images, I have a photo tutorial for you, sharing the process used for the card. I haven't done too many tutorials, so please feel free to contact me if you have questions about anything shown below.
|Start with white panel and Brushed Cordoury Distress Ink.|
|Using foam dauber, and a circular motion, sponge entire panel with ink. I always work on my craft mat. Start your cirular motion OFF the page, bringing it in toward the center for better results.|
|Next, use the same technique with Rusty Hinge ink, but keep the sponging toward the outside edge of the panel.|
|Choose the smallest Goldenrod image from Stately Flowers 2.|
|Begin stamping with Rusty Hinge, around all four edges of your panel.|
|Once stamping is completed, mat your panel onto your choice of cardstock. I chose black.|
|Next choose another panel for background. I chose a black and white tiny gingham check. Cut a piece or ribbon long enough to secure on the back of your background piece, and adhere.|
|It will look like this. Once ribbon is secure, adhere this panel to card front.|
|Turn focal panel over, and adhere dimensional foam.|
|Add focal panel to card. Tie a knot in a scrap of ribbon, and adhere to panel with glue dot.|

I have one more card to show, using the single flower Missouri Hawthorne stamp. Let me know you need any information on how it was created. I think it's probably pretty self-explanatory.
