Thank you with Botanical Blooms

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo and Dapper Denim.  These are the new In Colors from Stampin’ Up!

I recently had a birthday and and needed to send a thank you card to my friend.  I created this card with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and the sentiment is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set. The layer with the die cut leaf edge I first applied ink to the uncut layer with a brayer.  I inked it up then rolled it off a few times before rolling onto the layer because I wanted a lighter shade of the Dapper Denim to provide contrast to the flowers.  After drying I die cut the leaf edge then adhered to a layer of Dapper Denim.

I used the Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White card stock to created the flowers. The leaves are Dapper Denim.  The Whisper White was a bit stark so I used the dotted stamp from the Timeless Textures set.  I stamped some of the ink off before stamping on some of the dots so the color is of different intensity.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark first then Dapper Denim and heat embossed with retired Iridescent embossing powder to make it sparkle.

I hope my card inspires you to play with these colors!
