Sherry Hester here with my first post as a new Memory Box Design Team member! You may know of me as a member of the Poppystamps Design Team, which was a most delightful experience with lots of very talented ladies. Being on the Memory Box Design team is a wonderful opportunity for me, and I hope to bring you lots of creative inspiration moving forward.
My card today features the Long Stem Lavender die. This card will be one of the cards we will be creating in an upcoming Memory Box class at Ultimate Hobbies in Orange.
I cut two sets of the lavender die, and one extra stem to add some curly filler. The flowers were sponged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and enhanced with Wink of Stella glitter brush before being adhered to the stems. I cut two of the Lenora Bloom in two shades of green, and snipped off everything above the leaves. After sponging Shabby Shutter Distress Ink on the leaves, I arranged them as shown around the bottom of the lavender stems.
I love the Open Studio Rectangle Layers sooo much! I cut one of the layers, lightly splattered it with lavender ink, and added a sheer length of ribbon before adding the lavender and leaves. I created a banner using the “Wishing You a Happy Day” stamp, curved the banner a bit and then added it to the layered piece as well. I adhered the assembled layer to the card front, and added some gem stones to finish.
Hope you enjoy this card, and thanks for stopping by!
