Thank You-Brighter Days | Anne Fiene

Thank You-Brighter Days | Anne Fiene

24 Feb 2022 2 Comments

Hello and welcome! I'm up on the blog today with a striking card that was made with a previously released stamp set as well as the new Brighter Days hot foil plate, layering stencil set and accompanying die. I also used Pinkfresh's Solid Hot Foil plate to make a sentiment that I thought was just right against that bold background.

I started by using the Brighter Days hot foil plate with silver foil on a few different sheets of paper: pink, peach and white. In the end I think the Pinkfresh ink colors looked brightest on the white cardstock but I used blooms from each. After they were foiled I pulled out the Brighter Days layering stencil set and used red and orange inks from the Heartbeat and Indian Summer collections. After they were colored in I die cut them out with the accompanying die and set them aside.

I pulled out the Pop Out: Straight Stripes Cling stamp set. This is a red rubber stamp set and stamps a wonderfully crisp image. Each stripe will separate from the rest making it easy to ink each stripe a different color, or custom arrange the stripes how you like, but I used the stamp as is with Detail Black on white cardstock for a striking background panel. I cut it out leaving a thin white border around the edge and adhered it to a black cardstock base for another thin border in black this time.

I arranged the flowers down the center of the card and used foam tape to separate them from each other and pop them up off of the background. Then I used the new Curvy Foliage die to tuck curly sprigs of green and black around the blooms. 

For the sentiment I used the Perfect Sentiments hot foil plate with black foil on white cardstock, and while my Glimmer machine was still hot I heated up the Solid Hot Foil plate (twice) to use the sheet of foil I had just used on more white cardstock so that the letters would be white surrounded by that black foil. I also put in a piece of cardstock between the spacer pad and thin shim that come with the Glimmer machine system. There is a Perfect Sentiments stamp set that can be used to stamp and white heat emboss with, achieving a similar affect if you're not a fan of foiling.

I scattered some silver metallic pearls around the arrangement of blooms and was done!

I hope some of these design choices have inspired you to make something new today. Thank you so much for stopping by!

This is an exquisite card. I love this bold black stripe background. It really makes those flowers pop. This has been the best floral set because I have seen so many beautiful cards made with it.
