Hope that your week is going fine and that you are all well.
I have posted before that at times I take my inspiration from the colour choices in Design Series Papers and I must say one of my favourite papers at the moment is the Attic Boutique DSP in the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.
The paper has colours: Poppy Parade, Pool Party, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Very Vanilla and Whisper White.
I wanted to use some yellow and I knew I had some Daffodil Delight ribbon, so used a section of the DSP with some Daffodil Delight on it.
So my colour choices are Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.
I have used my ribbon, ‘bling’ of course and something that I rarely use - some pearls, so I have gone very girly! I am collecting a number of cards Mum would like, so my choice for Mother’s Day will be interesting :)
The sketch for my card is from Sketchy Colors and you can see it here.
I have used the Just Believe stamp set and my Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die. If you haven’t used this die, it embosses the butterflies and cuts them out in one go! I keep the extra butterflies that I do not use in a container and they always come in handy.
The image was stamped in Daffodil Delight and sort of wiped with the Soft Suede inkpad before I stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock.
Here is my card:
Stamp set: Just Believe
Card: Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Very Vanilla
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede
Accessories: Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, 1/4” (6.4 mm) Daffodil Delight Grosgrain Ribbon, Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon (Retired), Basic Rhinestones, Pearls, Attic Boutique DSP, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive
I nearly gave up with the layout because I could get the right look but once I added the other piece of DSP on the top section of the card, I was happy.
