My First Touch of Kindness Card

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I'm so sorry that I haven't posted for awhile.  I've got projects to show you, but I just haven't had time to post.  Today's card is a card that I made for a swap I was in.  I joined the swap group through our Stampin' Up! demonstrator community, Stampin' Connection.  Stampin' Up! gives demonstrators so many ways to get project ideas!  It's great!

The stamp set is a new one from the Summer Mini called, Touch of Kindness (p. 25).  I love the little birds in the bird bath.  They're so cute.  I got the color combo from new designer series paper (DSP) in the Summer Mini, Beyond the Garden (p 23).  I get a lot of my color combos from Stampin' Up!'s wonderful DSP!  The scallop square around the main image was made with the Scallop Squares Duo Bigz Die (p. 24 in the Summer Mini).  I used the largest square on the die.  It's a really nice size for a card.

I stamped the sunflower images across the Melon Mambo bottom of the card with Melon Mambo ink.  I stamped the middle one first, and then the two on each side.  I also stamped another sunflower onto Tangerine Tango card stock with Tangerine Tango ink and punched it out with the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch (p. 200).  I stamped a greeting from the same stamp set onto Daffodil Delight card stock with Melon Mambo ink, punched it out with a 1-1/4" Circle Punch (p. 202), and attached it to the orange sunflower.  I then attached it to the middle sunflower on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 197).
