#sharesunshine – cheerful…

Botanical Bliss - Praiseworthy Prose by Tammy C. Wilson (watermark)05.12.20…..Happy Tuesday, everyone!  The new Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog will be here very soon…on June 3, 2020 to be exact! And…there are lots of wonderful stamp sets retiring from Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog…on June 2, 2020!  That being said, I decided to use a couple of my favorite sets that will soon be retiring…..Botanical Bliss and Praiseworthy Prose…to create a #sharesunshine card!  So….if you don’t already have either one of these stamp sets, you’ll want to order it right away!

For this card, I started with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, embossed it with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Whisper White Thick Cardstock base. The flowers (from the Botanical Bliss Stamp Set) were heat-embossed on Crumb Cake Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I then used my Aqua Painter (along with Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Night of Navy, and Early Espresso) to color the flowers. Before I popped it up with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals, I used my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker to add some speckling.  (To create the speckling, I “flicked” the thick end of the marker against the marker cap.)

Wilson (zoom)The sentiment (from the Praiseworthy Prose Stamp Set) was stamped with Early Espresso on Whisper White Cardstock, cut out, and popped up with a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To add just a little extra pop of color, I added a bit of Crushed Curry Cardstock (cut out with one of the Painted Labels Dies) on the right edge of the card.  For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on a few Peaceful Popppies Sequins.

Wishing you creativity always.
