I started off with making the background by stamping the tall flower planter multiple times on a piece of kraft cardstock. Then I stamped the same image on 6 different pattern paper from the Bobunny Early Bird collection that came with the Simon card kit. I fussy cut all 6 of the planters out.
I used a Simon Says Stamp hugs die (one of my go favs) to cut out two die cuts from heavy weight white cardstock. Then I used one of the fantastic sentiments, that comes in the Mandy's Flower stamp set and heat embossed that with white embossing powder on black cardstock.
Going back to the kraft background, I started coloring in the floral images with a white color pencil. I used 2 shades of green on the leaves. The pencils to lighten the lines from the stamp a little but I was ok with that. You could try to stamp over your colored images when you are done to darken that back up but that is the reason why I had to stamp the background twice. 😁
I layed the two hugs die cuts together and then adhered them to the upper left corner of the color pencil background. I used a clear glitter pen over the hugs word and then coated it with glossy accents. For the second sentiment I trimmed it down with my paper cutter then set it gently into the still tacky glossy accents over top the hugs die cut.
To add some more shimmer to this I pulled out some Liquid Pearls in White Opal. I haven't used this stuff in a long time. I coated all of the stripes on the container with the liquid pearls and used my tweezers to tidy up any messy areas.
Then I add the Doodlebug hearts (also from the kit) and scattered those through out the panel. After that I just adhered the whole thing to a Neenah A2 sized card base.
