It feels like Spring is in the air and today's card captures that feeling for me. I love the delicate look of the Petite Petals on this card and believe it or not, the colors I used are the (soon to be retired) 2014-2016 In Colors! That's right, the petals are stamped with Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist. The secret to softening up the colors is that I stamped each color and then stamped off twice without re-inking the stamp. I love that these colors can be made to look soft or bold, depending on how you stamp them. The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. I can envision a beautiful Easter card using these same soft petals, can't you? The Suite Sayings stamp set includes an Easter greeting, too. Check it out, there are ten sentiments in the set all with different fonts. The DSP on my card is Wildflower Fields available as a free Sale-A-Bration item with any $50 purchase.
Remember the three Sale-A-Bration items that were replaced in mid-February? Well, good news! There is excess inventory at the Stampin' Up warehouse, so if you wish you had grabbed up "Hello", "Sky is the Limit" or the Perfectly Artistic DSP, they are still available while supplies last! Sky is the Limit is a great set for masculine cards, and the sentiments really work well for graduation cards.
