Flowers for SIP#24

By | November 29, 2015

So how has your weekend been? Do any Black Friday/Small business Saturday shopping, I did. Happy to say while I might have been away from the computer for a few days, I’ve completed a large chunk of holiday shopping.  House is completely decorated and a large pot of homemade spaghetti sauce is on the stove today. I plan on spending today crafting and watching some football.

Today’s card is for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge #24, a Color Challenge. Click on the banner to check out their blog.  For my card I decided to use one of my current favorite holiday stamp sets for a non-holiday card. While the colors say holiday, they aren’t for just the holidays any more.


I started with two pieces of Whisper White one cut 1″ x 1″ smaller than the other with a tiny piece of glue holding them together for stamping. The Reason for the Season stamp set has a three step stamp that creates a “flower” for a non-holiday card or poinsettia for a holiday card. First I stamped the black image, then Watermelon Wonder and finally Cucumber Crush. Sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set.  Next I separated the pieces, covered each with VersaMark ink and sprinkled with Iridescent Ice Embossing powder and heat set.  Then they are matted on Basic Black card stock.  Card base is Thick Whisper White card stock. Dimensional separate against the layers.

    Your card is both elegant and beautiful Karen. I would never has tried Watermelon Wonder for poinsettias but it works. Love the sparkle all over your card too. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Stamp Ink Paper. Carolyn xx
