We did take a little time to stamp in Nichole's studio. Nichole, Dawn, Wendy (Nichole's BFF) and I dug out the Copics and each made a creation. We created quite the beautiful mess as you can see below. Here's the card I created using In Bloom. I colored the delightful flowers and leaves with Copic markers, paper pieced them and then added lots of Stickles for shimmer and shine.
The base card is Kraft, along with Aqua Mist. Under the raised flowers, I used a new texture plate(QuicKutz) I got at the local scrapbook store while visiting Nichole. Of course I had to make a few purchases while I was there. The textured piece was stamped with Fresh Snow using Polka Dot Basics. The *thinking of you* sentiment is from Vintage Picnic Sentiments. That bottom pieced with images stamped from Background Basics: Stars was a scrap piece I found in Nichole's stash. I finished off my card with a bright and cheery piece of Orange Zest ribbon and tied Vintage Buttons.
Note: My card size fits the new A1 Envelopes (I used Kraft). Nichole has two great downloads located in the envelope section of the PTI store....one for envelope liner templates and another for handy dandy measurements for card cutting sizes to fit the corresponding envelopes. I've already printed the cutting guide download and have it taped up in my stamp room. (prints on 8.5" x 14").
