Thinking of You!


Hello friends! I am playing along with a few blog challenges today.  I am also using some new products to me!

I started with select white card stock. I am using Altenew Wallpaper Art stamp set and Wallpaper Art die set.  I have wanted this set for a very long time. I finally ordered it!  I stamped the flower images using Versafine onyx black ink and clear embossed.  I used a pale gray zig clean color real brush marker to add some depth to the flowers.  I stamped the leafy spring from the stamp set using Momento Lilac ink.  I enhanced the leaves using Deep Magenta RV17 Copic marker.  

For the background panel, I used select white card stock that I die cut using Avery Elle Quilted Frame die.  I used some black acrylic paint mixed with water and and Artist Brush to add some splatters. I arranged the flowers and leaves using some Nuvo Adhesive and foam tape.  I added the panel to a top folding Weathervane card stock base using foam tape

For the sentiment, I used SSS Beautiful Butterfly stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment using versamark ink and white embossed onto true black card stock.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins  

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!


  1. Beautiful!! Amazing detail with in just gray and black. I love the pops of pink.

  2. Holy spokes this is gorgeous. The pink leaves was very clever and creative. Now I am going to have to own this set, too.

  3. WOW!! I love the combination of gray and black on your amazing flowers and that touch of color with the pink leaves truly pops.
    Thank you for sharing at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE.
    Stay healthy and safe.

  4. Betty this is such a glorious card! I love the colour combo you chose and those breath taking flowers too. Think I have them too...must check and use them lol. Thanks for sharing with us over at 'The Flower Challenge' ;) Viv DT xx

  5. This card is stunning! What beautiful colouring. I really like how you did the flowers in grey while doing the leaves in bright colours! Such a nice contrast and opposite of what you would expect. And the stitched background with the splatter is such a nice touch.

  6. Such a beautiful card Betty love the colours used and that fabulous flower stamp


Thanks so much!
