July 2014 Diva Dare - Day 2

Hi everyone! Jen here with Day 2 of the July Diva Dare! I LOVE this month's challenge and hope you will too!

Inside Out - July Diva Dare

This month we're daring you to create a stamped card and continue the design on the inside for a special surprise for the recipient.  Simply carry over some portion of the card front design on to the inside of your card.   

Stamps used: Happy Place, Dies used: Happy Doodles Die Set

I knew I wanted to use Happy Place for my card today because I just adore this stamp set. The flowers are so much fun and I hadn't had a chance to use this particular flower yet so I knew it was the perfect opportunity. I inked the flowers using Rose Bud and Bamboos Leaves ink from Memento and then used a couple of coordinating Copics to fill a few spots. Next I cut all of the layout pieces and stamped the pink layer with the small flower sprigs from Happy Place using Angel Pink from Memento. It's very subtle (though in person it's a bit more visible than what you can see in the picture). I stamped the sentiment in kraft color ink to coordinate with the background. I added bit of ribbon from the Signature Ribbon Collection to the tag and tied it off with a bit of twine. 

To coordinate the inside I used the same colors of cardstock and the same general sizes of cardstock as I did on the outside. I also stamped the flower again on the inside only this time I did not color with Copics. 


Now it's YOUR turn!
