Best Wishes Card Featuring the New Fresh Breeze Stamp Set | Rubbernecker Stamps

 Hello friends!  Today my card is featuring one of the beautiful new Rubbernecker Stamps floral stamp sets!  This one is called Fresh Breeze, and it is a gorgeous set with solid stamp images and additional layering stamps that add so much dimension!

First created the background piece:

  • I "conditioned" the Fresh Breeze stamps by rubbing a white eraser over them until the shine was gone.  This really helps to minimize any beading up of the ink!
  • Stamp the base layer using two of the flower stamps from the Fresh Breeze set and the stems randomly over the A2 sized white card stock.  I used the lightest shade of ink from the Color Fuse ink Set #s 5, 6, and 9.  I stamped all of the stems with Clover ink from set #10.  I have these and all products linked at the end of my post.
  • Here's a peek at it all in progress:

  • I used an acrylic stamp block for this to make it quick and easy.  I was sure to let some of the flowers hang off of the card stock edge to create more of a natural background look.
  • I adhered the piece to a top-folding card base.

  • Next I stamped all of the layers for each of the two flowers creating three flowers and stems.  I switched to my MISTI for stamping the layers in case I decided to stamp the layer more than once.  I used the same Color Fuse sets as above, but for the three layers, I used shades 1, 2, and 4.  (Don't you love how the ink cubes are labeled 1 through 4?!!  I used Basil from ink set #10 for the stems.  Then I fussy cut them out.
  • I had a piece of sparkly vellum leftover from another project.  It was a piece that I had sprayed with Therm O Web Iridescent Glitter Dust.  It creates such a pretty, yet subtle sparkle!  I die cut the vellum with the next to largest Nested Oval Small Stitch die.
  • Next I adhered the flowers to the vellum oval with liquid glue.
  • Then I stamped the sentiment from the Fresh Breeze stamp set in black ink.  I trimmed it to a rectangle shape and adhered it to the oval.
  • I added foam tape to the back of the oval, but only behind the flowers and sentiment.  Don't want that to show through!  I adhered the piece to the card.

I love how this turned out!  It was really fun creating the background too!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful, crafty week!
