I received a darling card in my mailbox today from my 3rd level upline in Stampin' Up!, Connie Heisey. She sent me this card to congratulate me on my monthly sales.
I thought it was just the sweetest little card. So perfectly simple. It was made with the Grateful Bunch stamp set from the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog.
It was just so darling, that it inspired me to get out my Grateful Bunch stamp set and create a card following Connie's lovely example.
Here's the card that Connie sent to me: Connie used pool party and crumb cake cardstock, black archival and so saffron inks and an old olive stampin' write marker to color in the leaves. I love how the pool party pops off of the crumb cake background.
I designed a pretty in pink card, inspired by Connie's design. I used pink pirouette, sahara sand and pear pizzaz cardstocks. I colored in the flower with stampin' write markers in pink pirouette, pear pizazz, old olive and crushed curry. The fun corners were punched with the Curvy Corner Trio punch in the Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog.
The card trim at the bottom is from the Love Blossoms designer paper pack and the pink pirouette candy dots were added for interest and dimension.
Here's a close up of the dazzling details glitter that I dotted on around the center of the flower.
Here they are together. It really is difficult for me to do a "sweet and simple" card, but I gave it my best shot. (a girl's got to embellish...)
This really is a super pretty stamp set. I hope you get a tidbit of inspiration from Connie's card too.
Until next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
