Stampin' Up! Pansy Patch Sneak Peek!

 Welcome to another Makeover Madness Monday! Today I have made over a card my friend and upline, Mary created. She even has a video for you. Check Mary out! Here's my card so you can compare it to hers.

My card features the Pansy Patch Stamp Set. My card base is one of the new 2021-2023 In Colors, Fresh Fresia. My mats are Highland Heather and the DSP is from the upcoming Pansy Petals. Don't you just love gingham checks? and the flowery paper? It will be available to customers 5/4/21. Demonstrators could pre-order! I just received my pre-order on Saturday so this is my first go-around with the paper, dies and stamp set!

My sentiment is from the Very Versailles Stamp Set in the current catalog and it is carrying over to the upcoming catalog. This is the first time I have used this set as well. I used the new Fresh Fresia ink pad.

Here's a pic of the back side...

The sentiment is from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set in the January-June Mini Catalog and it will be retiring in hoo. The pansies are from the upcoming Pansy Patch Stamp Set. The sentiment is stamped in the new Evening Evergreen ink and the pansies are stamped with Fresh Fresia and Highland Heather inks.

This is what it looks like standing from above...

I am entering my card in these challenges...I'm overly ambitious today...but 7 is a great number!

  8. Hi Karen!

    Wowza! First of all my favorite color, then add in my second favorite thing of some plaid paper, and then to top it all off the way you've cut it all out so perfectly I would have thrown it across the room before I could have done it! Can you tell I love every little stinkin' thing about this? Truly, truly beautiful my friend :)

    Thanks for joining my challenge.
