Stampin’ Up! Happy Easter, Happy Spring Sending Flowers

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  We had a beautiful sunny weekend here, nice change from all the rain.

For today’s card I played with one of the Coordination items available now.  Here’s my card.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #423.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #581.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Smoky Slate Neutrals 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to a Smoky Slate card base using Snail.

I cut 2 of the Coordination Sending Flowers Dies, one from Granny Apple Green cardstock and one from Whisper White cardstock.  I cut 2 each of the flowers from the Sending Flowers Dies in Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo cardstock.  I adhered the flowers to the large dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I colored the stems on the Whisper White one using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. With the Whisper White die cut, I trimmed off the top and sides using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the Granny Apple Green die cut on top of the Whisper White one, off centering it so that you can see all the flowers, using Snail along the bottom.  I trimmed off the excess using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the die cut to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a thin strip of Melon Mambo and Gorgeous Grape below the flowers.  I stamped the top portion only of the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White strip under the Gorgeous Grape strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the strips.

On the inside I stamped the bottom portion of the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stems and leave from the Timeless Tulip stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on both sides of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the smallest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo Inks on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stems and leave from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the smallest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo Ink on the stems.  I adhered a panel of the Smoky Slate Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
