Hello, friends! I hope this finds you doing well. Today I'm sharing a card made for Inspired By, which is a new-to-me challenge, and Just Us Girls. I'm also joining the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme is to make a slimline card.
It's funny, I had been looking through some of my stamp sets and was longing to find the opportunity to use one particular set. Then, the very next day, I followed a link to Inspired By and found my chance to use this image! I was inspired by the pitcher and all the pretty pink.
I absolutely adore this pitcher and pretty bouquet of flowers and had fun coloring it with Copic markers, after which it was cut out with coordinating dies. The sentiment is from a separate stamp set and was also cut out with a matching die.
As I began to put the card together, I remembered I had the stitched and scallop edged slimline panels left over from another project. The pink scalloped panel has a diamond design stenciled on it with white pigment ink. Those two panels were adhered directly to the 8 3/4" x 3 3/4" white card base. I embossed a piece of Desert Storm card stock with a wood plank folder, trimmed it down, lightly ink blended some Distress ink on the edges, then added it to the base to give the pitcher something to "stand" on. Next, the flowers and sentiment were popped up on foam tape, and finally I added a couple of pink clay hearts above the sentiment and scattered a few dew drops around the rest of the card.
Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it! Take care, especially those of you getting hit with the ice and snow storms.
