Always & Forever and a Blog Hop

 Happy Friday! Are you as thankful it is the weekend as I am? These weeks of online teaching are exhausting...I am SO ready for a break from all that screen time I've been logging!

Today is the 15th of the month, which means it is time for another Stamping Symphony Blog Hop! 

This month we are all about new products from the January - June Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration. Check out this card that uses products from both...

This pretty card is made so quick and easy by the Oh So Ombre DSP, which is free with a $60 order during Sale-a-bration. I stamped the floral images from the Forever & Always stamp set in Basic Grey ink several times on the DSP panel. I used a post-it-note mask to cover the images I wanted to layer...I love the way the use of a mask creates instant depth and perspective on a design!
I stamped the "Forever &" sentiment in Basic Grey as well and then, on a scrap of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the "Always" using Rococo Rose ink. I used the coordinating Always Dies to die but the stamped work and then popped it up on the stamped DSP panel. I added a little spatter of Champagne Mist shimmer paint for some texture and sparkle.

How yummy is that ribbon?? It is the new Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon and it is utterly gorgeous! All it took was a little scrap to add instant sparkle and shine to my card. Those little gold sprigs are trimmed from one of the sheets in the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty paper pack. Such an easy way to create a DIY gold embellishment. Of course, I had to add a little bling with some gold Gilded Gems.

On the inside of my Rococo Rose card base, I added a Whisper White panel on which I stamped more of the floral images from the Forever & Always stamp set in Basic Grey ink. I omitted a sentiment for now, as this card could work work a wedding, anniversary or even Valentine's Day. By leaving my options open, I can always add a stamped sentiment when the right occasion arises. 

For a demonstration on how I made this card, and for some tips on the masking technique, check out the video below...
