Today is the 25th so it is time for another Papertrey Bloghop
This was the inspiration photo for the challenge.
This is what I came up with
I didn't think I was going to get a chance to participate in this one since I am busy with Etsy orders but I loved these colors so much I just had to make something. I also used Nicole's make and take project that she shared on Stamp-a-faire day as inspiration too. I started by stamping the background with the new Sweet Life stamp set using the colors in the photo. Unfortunately my Melon Berry is the first generation ink and has become a very dark pink so I used SU Cameo Coral instead. At first I had a really hard time stamping the images but Nicole graciously shared a diagram in the forum after I asked for help showing how to line them up and that helped a lot. After stamping the roses I filled in with leaves from the set then I finished the background off with Summer Sunrise ink and polka dots. The sentiment is from Year of Flowers Morning Glories. I was also having a hard time stamping on the velum without it smearing so I embossed it instead. I matted the card on a piece of Simply Chartruse Cardstock that I embossed with the Linen impression plate then I machined stitched around the background piece with matching thread I just happened to have. Finally I finished the card off with a tiny butterfly. I really love how this came out. I hope to make more of these in the future as a card set with a matching box. I didn't get a chance to make anything on Stamp a faire day but enjoyed seeing what everyone came up with and am looking forward to trying more of the projects soon. I am still watching the videos. :). This card is also a thank you to Nicole and the design team for hosting such a great event. I am hoping year I will have more time to participate the day of and maybe even have someone to stamp with. That's all for now. Hope the rest of your week is a great one and as always thank for stopping by.
