Khaki, Navy & White Sympathy Card

This card has been running around in my head for at least a month. I put a new box of tissues into one of the bathrooms, and I loved the khaki, navy and white floral design on the box.

I got hung up on the solid floral images…do I have anything like that in my stamp collection???

Finally, I pulled out an old standby retired set from Stampin’ Up, Paint Prints.

Here is the inspiration:

Hello Floral Card – Essentials by Ellen August 2017 Pin Sights Challenge

(click on any photo to enlarge)

I saw the colors for this month’s Essentials by Ellen August 2017 Pin Sights Challenge, and had to participate.

Here is the inspiration board:

I stamped my florals in Distress Inks, so the coverage is not solid – this was an intentional choice.

After the ink dried (I let it sit overnight – just because I could), I added the detail items to the flowers/leaves with  3 different color detail embossing powders.

Then, I die cut the word out of the floral background, and out of yellow card stock. I ultimately decided one extra layer was not enough, and cut another “Hello” out of tangerine card stock.

Here is a side view of the layers:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Pink & Green Washi Thank You Note Card

I embossed several of this thank you stamp, all with different color embossing powders. I think the pink and green washi tapes go well with the verdigris sentiment.
