Katie here with another #TBT. This week, I am taking another look at the new Wild and Free stamp set
and pairing it with one of Waffle Flower Craft’s very early stamp sets- Loved
. You will notice that both of these sets have a similar vibe and that’s because they were both designed by artist Mia Charro. These sets compliment each other so well and make excellent companions.
Although fall is right around the corner, it still feels like summer here so I am using a very summery palette of reds, pinks, yellow, orange and green on my card. Ink colors used include:
You Said What
Oh Happy Day
First I stamped the Wild and Free image with the deer and flowers with My Pleasure ink on a panel of white card stock that I die cut using the largest of the Lacy Layers 2 dies
. I really love that the Wild and Free sentiment image includes the deer, roses, leaves and ferns. This cluster takes a lot of the guess work out of combining elements and makes a great foundation to add other images to.
Next I add in some more of the foliage from Wild and Free, introducing green Chirp Chirp ink. In designing the card, I moved from the largest and longest images to the smallest. This makes sure that I have balance and can fit everything in.
Now I am ready to add in flowers from the Loved Stamp Set and start off with pretty yellow flowers using You Said What ink with Oh Happy Day ink as the flower center.
I continue to fill in around the main image using progressively smaller flower images. I also introduced pink to the color story with Tickled Pink ink.
Almost done! I just need to fill in the last few spots with the detail stamps from the Loved set. Before calling it finished, I also decide to add some color to the flowers from Wild and Free using the coordinating two step flower fill.
And here’s the finished card mounted on an orange note card. Building flower bouquets using the Loved and Wild and Free stamp sets is so simple and fun!
Well, that’s all for me today. I hope this card inspires you to grab some of your newer and older sets and build a late summer bouquet of beautiful flowers.
Don’t forget to leave me a comment if there’s an older stamp set that you’d like for me to feature on an upcoming #TBT.
Thanks for stopping by!
