Welcome to the Paper Craft Crew’s 200th Card Sketch Challenge
I’m offering my first blog candy contest…see the details below!
I’ll be honest: I’ve had the You’ve Got This stamp set since the last catalog was out and I finally used it for this challenge!
I don’t know why it has taken me so long to use this fabulous floral, but I have to say that I thought of it immediately when I saw the sketch that Pam Staples created for this week!
I LOVE the designer paper that I’ve used for this card. This is from the Floral Boutique Designer Paper Series. Every pattern is spectacular! It’s all Night of Navy and Whisper White. During the catalog launch event that Stampin’ Up! had, they told us that this paper was hand painted and turned into designer series paper directly from the artist’s canvas! How great is that? My favorite paper sets are always the ones that were hand painted by the artists.
I’ve also used the coordinating Washi tape that was created for the Floral Boutique Suite of products. The stamp set and thinlets are beautiful as well. It’s too irresistible not to buy all the products in the entire suite!
I coordinated the paper with the You’ve Got This stamp set. The So Saffron goes so beautifully with the Night of Navy that I couldn’t resist using it for the giant background stamp. I’ve used my marker splattering technique to add Cajun Craze splatter to the background. You can see the details of how to do that HERE!
I stamped the flower in StazOn black ink and colored it in using my Aqua Painter and So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz and Cajun Craze. I cut it out along with the Night of Navy scalloped mat layer with my new Layering Ovals framelits. I wasn’t sure about whether to get those framelits since I already had a set of oval framelits, but WOW! you get a lot of framelits along with coordinating scalloped ovals all in the same package. It takes the guesswork out of trying to create oval layers! The scallops add a nice touch as well.
Check out the framelits on this quick tip video:
The sentiment actually came from the Jars of Love stamp set. I was looking for something short and sweet that had a simple font. BOOM! Love that sentiment and this card will work for so many occasions!
Can you see my gold metallic thread peeking out below the image layers and the one Night of Navy enamel dot? Little touches that don’t show up well in a photo, but add just the right extra touch for the person who is holding the card!
