Happy Labor Day! I hope you enjoyed this last unofficial weekend of summer with your loved ones!! We got together with family yesterday and good friends today so had double the fun. Now that it is September it's a new month for a color challenge, #SULDCC2, and I wanted to share it with you here. Gaylyn Pantana chose a nice color palette for us this month and her inspiration piece can be seen below.
I decided to create a floral card to keep in line with the inspiration piece, so pulled out my Stippled Blossoms stamp set. I love two-step stamping stamp sets and always rely on my trusty stamp-a-ma-jig to help line them up correctly.
It's hard to see, but I added dazzling diamonds to my flower centers... so pretty in person, but very hard to capture with a camera. The only other embellishment on my card is the texture added to the night of navy card stock with the lacy border from Delicate Designs. I didn't want a lot of texture to take away from the flowers, but thought plain night of navy card stock was not quite right. I did use second generation stamping for the baked brown sugar and island indigo as these colors were dark when stamped full-strength. I really like the way this card turned out! It would be easy to stamp an entire sheet of whisper white card stock with this pattern and then cut it up as you would a piece of designer paper to make multiples of this card. And it is so easy to change up the greeting, too, especially with the Four You stamp set. This is definitely a must-have sentiment set in my book!
