You Are the Sweetest!


Happy Wednesday!  I have a card to share today using the new inspiration from 

This challenge is Luck of the Irish  
Hope you can join us and play along.

I was inspired by the yellow and white flowers in the bouquet with the touch of metallic with the buckle. I created a Clean and Layered styled card. 

 I started with select white card stock.  I ink blended Pinkfresh Studio Choose Hope Layering Stencils using Rise and Shine inks for the yellow flower, soft stone and fog inks for the white flowers, and olive, fern green, and key lime inks for the leaves. I used the Choose Hope stamp set to gold emboss the outline imaged. I die cut using the coordinating Choose Hope die.    

For the background panel, I used select white card stock  and die cut Pinkfresh Studio Ornate Banner die. I kept the paper in the die cut and ink blended the edges using some Lake Shores and Maliblue inks. I softly blended Pinkfresh Studio Slimline Diagonal Stencil while the paper was still in the die cut one way then flipped it over to create a plaid striped pattern using the same inks. I saw Lea Lawson do this flipped stencil pattern for the release and loved the idea.

 I removed the die cut and the inked portion is just in the interior of the die leaving a crisp white pierced frame edging. The ink blending inside the die is an old school trick I used to do all the time. I still love the look. I added the Ornate Banner panel using foam tape to a top folding select white card stock base that I softly sponged with some Lake Shores ink.
I arranged the floral element onto the card.  I added some splatters using black acrylic paint mixed with water and an Artist Brush .  I used Pinkfresh Studio Floral Notes stamp set for the sentiment. I stamped with Versamark ink and white embossed onto true black card stock. I die cut the sentiment using Paper Rose Sentiment Strips die.  I finished the card with a few of Pinkfresh Studio Crystals Mix. 

I am also playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week is Beautiful Blossoms!

Here is a list of many of the products I generally
use every time I make a card.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
