I love a good florals stamp set, don't you? Add in a gorgeous distress pitcher/vase and I'm sold!
The new Mama Elephant Sweet Havana stamp set is a new favorite for sure. I adore every single image in this stamp set! To keep the emphasis on the brightly colored stamped images, I created a white tone-on-tone background for the rest of the card. I love how the pitcher, florals and banner seem to pop off the background!
I stamped many of the elements (including the pitcher, banner, flower and some of the leaves) for my card using the Rock 'n Roll Technique. This technique works wonderfully with the ME pigment inks.
I used ME Winter and ME Ocean Pigment Inks for the pitcher, ME Blush and ME Bubblegum for the banner, ME Sunshine and ME Mojito for the leaves and ME Orangeade and ME Apple for the flower. I added some detailing to the florals with the Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen and die cut all the elements using the coordinating Sweet Havana Creative Cuts.
I adhered all the stamped and die cut elements onto the vellum scalloped rectangle die cut using the Type It Creative Cuts dies.
For the background, I die cut a rectangle from white cardstock using the Femme Frames stitched rectangle die and added texture with the SSS Medium Dots Stencil and White Emobssing Paste. Once the paste was dry I adhered the vellum piece on top using glue dots.
