I’ve had so much fun sharing the cards from my Sending Love One-for-One Card Swap over the past week. I was ready to share the last batch of cards today, but this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge gave me an itch to make a super-fun card I’ve needed to make. Yay! I will share the last batch of swap cards on Tuesday, but I couldn’t hide this card away – such fun! Here’s my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge:
- Flowers for Every Season. All five of the 2020-2022 In Colors are featured in the Flowers for Every Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (with Poppy Parade also added in). There are so many great combinations with these new colors -and they are all represented here. While the paper has so many gorgeous floral patterns, there are some great abstract patterns, too, like this vibrant page of pink and yellow. ♥ Here’s a look at the patterns and colors in the Flowers for Every Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper: If you’d like to flip through all the fun pages of the Flowers for Every Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, CLICK HERE.
- Fun Background. To create the fun background on my card, I cropped a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock at 3-3/4″ x 5″. I cropped the striped Designer Series Paper with the same measurements before cutting the panel from corner to corner, piecing the halves back together and then cutting from the other corners. So easy! The triangles serve as arrows, pointing the recipient to the fun sentiment at the center of the card:I absolutely love this “You did it!” sentiment from the Best Year stamp set. While I understand you aren’t going to pop over to the online store today to purchase the Best Year stamp set because of this simple card, I think you should take a peek at the amazing sentiments, anyway – it’s a great set! ♥ Here’s a look at the amazing sentiments in Best Year: Best Year can also be purchased as a bundle (with the Best Plaid Builder Dies) – to see that bundle, CLICK HERE.
- Unexpected Color Combination. I love when Stampin’ Up! teaches me that some colors look great together (even when they shouldn’t). I pulled the three colors for today’s card straight from the pages of the Flowers for Every Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. This gorgeous page of stripes features tones of Bumblebee, Magenta Madness and Poppy Parade. If you like this unexpected mix of colors as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
Stamp Sets: Best Year Papers: Flowers for Every Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Poppy Parade, Bumblebee, Whisper White Inks: Poppy Parade Accessories: 1-1/2″ Circle punch, Layering Circles Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today!
