I'm back into cardmaking again after spending the past couple nights organizing my cardstock and designer series paper. It's so nice to have all my paper organized - makes finding specific colours so much easier!
It's time for a new challenge with...
The selections for this week are:
Love & Sympathy Stamp Set
Square Lattice Embossing Folder
These elements are quite easy to work with and can coordinate quite well together. I decided to combine this with two other challenges this week: a sketch from Deconstructed Sketch and a colour combo from Colour Q.
I love this colour combo and the dress in the inspiration photo is so pretty! I decided to use just the flower from the Love & Sympathy stamp set. While these colours are very appropriate for a sympathy card, I couldn't find a way to add the sentiment from this stamp set into this sketch. So, I picked a sentiment from a different set and made it into a thank you card.
Instead of Blush Blossom and Sage Shadow, I used Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz/Old Olive. I embossed the flag strip of Calypso Coral cardstock with the square lattice embossing folder. I like how it matches with the Blushing Bride designer paper. The sentiment was stamped in Calypso Coral, punched out with a 1" circle punch and popped up using dimensionals. I added some 'bling' to embellish it.
Thanks for visiting!
