Thinking of you with a Pop of Paradise

I love the Pop of Paradise stamp set.  This stamp set is one that is retiring at the end of the month.   I created the card for a family member  and want to send it to her to let her know I’m thinking about her and wish her a speedy recovery. She’s going through cancer treatment and just want her to know I’m with her in spirit since I can’t be with her.  My plan is to send her a card every week.  In this age of email and social media I think it’s nice to get a letter or hand made card in the mail.

My card was also inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments and Cased from last year’s catalog.   Stampin up cards Thinking of you Pop of Color pink and black cards

Thinking of you in 2015-2017 New In Colors

For this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a sketch challenge.  I love the inspiration this sketch provided.  I used some of the new In Colors 2015-2017 to create this ‘Thinking of You’ card.

Stampin up In Colors 2015-2017 I used Natural Ivory for my card base and layered with the Mint Macaron.  For additional interest I used the corner punch to round opposite corners.  I stamped the spotted background with Mint Macaron using a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.  I also used the fern stamp from Birthday Basics.  The leaves and the flower were stamped with stamps from the Crazy about You.  The leaves in Cucumber Crush and the flower in Watermelon Wonder are prefect cheerful colors.  The butterfly is stamped with Black Stazon and I used Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron to sponge the wings.  The beautiful Delightful Dijon lace ribbon is also from new 2015-2017 In Colors collection.

Join us with your interpretation of our sketch and see what our talented design team has created.
