I have always been someone who love the beauty of nature. When I saw the Eco Chic stamp set during sneak peeks for Unity Stamp Co.'s latest release I was elated!!! This is an adorable stamp set and lemme tell you - the price is right too! I sat down last weekend to make a set of "green" cards. I wanted to use simple designs and earthy colors to create organic looking cards. The first card features the tree image and ecoChic sentiment. I watercolored the tree on Naturals Ivory cs in Close to Cocoa and Old Olive. I distressed the edges of the main image panel and used my SU! spiral punch to notch the left side. I also added some chocolate twill ribbon to finish out the look.
The second card features the sunflowers from the Eco Chic set. I stamped the center flower then created a mask using a stick note. Then I added all the other flowers one by one so it looks like some are in front and others are in back. I watercolored the sunflowers using Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, and Summer Sun inks. For the clouds I used a scalloped circle shape and sponged on some Versamagic Sea Blue ink. The "hope" sentiment comes from the Floral Fantastical stamp set. The slider was made by using my corner rounder on all the edges and then punching with my horizontal slot punch on each end. Chocolate twill ribbon is threaded through and tied.
The third card was made for this week's Technique Lover's Challenge over on SCS - Suspension cards! I thought the earth image would be perfect!!! I stamped the 4 1/4" square card base using my Sanded BG from SU! in Close to Cocoa ink. Then I punched out a window using my scallop punch. The earth image was stamped in Adirondak Espresso ink on Naturals Ivory cs and colored in using Copic markers. It is suspended using hemp twine. The back of the spinner element features the *heart* the earth sentiment from the Eco Chic stamp set. I added some Prima flowers with an aged copper brad center and chocolate twill ribbon as a finishing touch. I hope you enjoyed today's post.
