Welcome back to our Fancy Friday Blog Hop. I had to skip last month, so it is really great to be back working with all of these amazing Stampin' Up! demonstrators. If you are following along, you should have just arrived from visiting the lovely and talented Krista Frattin. Our challenge this month was to make one or more thank you cards and then actually send them out.
This is the first card I made, so let's start with it. I adore the new Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper that will be coming out on June 1st, so I just had to start with it and build my card from there. I stamped the sentiment from the new Layering Love set on Whisper White cardstock and then die cut it with the Lots of Labels Framelits. I created a frame with gold foil cardstock.
Next, I stamped the two flowers from the You've Got This stamp set on Shimmery White cardstock and water colored them using Melon Mambo ink. It is the same flower, but I cut away some of the petals to create two different sizes. I borrowed the leaves from the Remarkable You stamp set. I also stamped them on Shimmery White cardstock and water colored them with the beautiful new Emerald Evny In--Color ink. To make life easier, I cut out the leaves individually instead of trying to keeping them attached to the stem.)
For the second card I heat embossed the sentiment on Basic Black cardstock and shifted the sentiment to the side. I really love the way both of these cards turned out, but this one is may favorite.
We are supposed to tell to whom we are sending our card(s). I am not sure about the first one, but this one is for a friend of mine from church, Gail. She is so appreciative of my card making and I really think that she will love it.
I hope you like today's project. I can't wait to see what the other Fancy Friday team members have created. Now be sure to hop on over to visit the incredibly talented Joyce Fowler.
