Hey there! Today's card has a bit of a technique with it. I used the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set, without the hedgehog, and the Peaceful Moments stamp set to create this card with a masked section in the middle!
I started by laying down a piece of Post-it Tape across the Very Vanilla layer so I could stamp along the top and bottom edges but leave the center empty. I lined up the edges of the layer with the squares on my grid sheet, then laid the Post-It Tape across, using the lines of the squares to keep the tape straight. I was able to stamp the flower spray, the toadstool, and the butterfly, letting the stamping overlap the tape a bit without inking the middle.
I colored the toadstool with the nib tip of the Dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blend, then colored the flounce below it with the Light Poppy Parade. I colored the flowers with a Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend and the flower centers with a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend.
I stamped a greeting from Peaceful Moments in the center with Tuxedo Black ink. I added a few rhinestones for some sparkle, otherwise this would have been a completely flat card!
Inside I used another Peaceful Moments sentiment, then stamped the other images from the front with the same inks but left them uncolored.
