Pink Blossoms and Queen for the Day


Today I'm continuing to show you the individual cards from the floral gift set I made for Dolce Stamps and Cards using JustRite stamps!  This is the pink (really Melon Mambo) card.  All the supplies I used are listed at this Dolce link.  These JustRite Mini Sentiments and Custom Tag Dies are so cool!   I made the coordinating background for each card using a background stamp from Stampin' Up's Itty Bitty backgrounds.

I'm glad you were able to stop by and take a peek.  Let me know that you did by leaving a much appreciated comment either here or on the Dolce blog so I can come visit you, too!

Oh, but wait.....I have one more creation I'd love to share with you called


It was inspired by my friend, Julia (also known as artystamper on Splitcoaststampers).  Julia was chosen as Queen for the Day on SCS this past Friday, and I'm just now getting a chance to case one of her beautiful cards.  The one I chose is from an old favorite Stampin' Up set of mine called Terrific Tulips.  Julia titled it Thinking of You.

I heat embossed my Embrace Life flower with black embossing powder onto vellum cardstock. I used sponge daubers to apply the various colored inks on both the back and front of the vellum and then cut out the flower. I did the same thing to the bamboo leaf image from this same stamp set, using it as my flower stem.

My vase was punched out of River Rock cs using SU's ornament punch. I sponged the outer edges with Pesto inks and applied a flourish of pearls to it. I also applied micro pearls to the flower.

I adhered the vellum flower and stem with Glossy Accents. Those parts of the vellum I did not affix the Glossy Accents to naturally lifted off the white cardstock creating the dimension I wanted.

Thank you, Julia, for the inspiration! Wear your well-deserved crown proudly!
