Hello Honey!


My card for today is submitted for Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #83. I took a little artistic liberty with the placement of the sentiment and replaced the "banner" with 3 enamel dots. They ARE in a straight line (smile). My inspiration came from Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge CC619. Because everything I used was a Stampin' Up product, I have entered it in SUO Embossing Challenge #166. Because I felt my card was Bold and Bright and slightly resembled the sketch at TSOT's Challenge #306, I am entering it there as well. This card has a lot of miles on it already and it hasn't even left the house! Challenges are so much fun. If you have never tried one, visit one of the above...you won't be sorry.

My card base is Tempting Turquoise. The DSP is from the 2014-2015 In Color pack (Hello Honey), the flower and sentiment are from the Avant Garden set and stamped in Rich Razzleberry. The stem is stamped in Wild Wasabi. I only embossed the top and bottom with the Petal Burst folder. The Whisper White circle was a die cut from Stitched Shapes. The scalloped mat is 2 3/8" SU punch. The three dots are Rich Razzleberry enamel dots. I think that covers it!

Thanks for looking!!

  5. Very pretty! I need to use this stamp a bit more and get some mileage from it as well! I don't usually use Rich Razzleberry, but it really stands out here! Thanks for playing!
