Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration - Botanicals For You


Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop and welcome from Anna’s blog.

I’m still loving this stamp set....it’s the large greeting stamp and that font! :)

I used the colour palette from ColourQ this week...Melon Mambo for the font from “Botanicals for You” and Kraft, Pool Party, Blushing Bride & Melon Mambo for the detail at the top of the card. 

These flower pieces were die cut with the new Botanical Builder Framelit Dies. The Blushing Bride flower was sponged around the outside with Blushing Bride ink and then Melon Mambo ink...just to give it an authentic look. I then painted it with the Wink of Stella pen in clear. 

I stamped underneath the flower detail with Pool Party and I did the same inside the card. 

I thought it would be fun to decorate my envelope too. :)

Here is our sketch for this week:

Here are the beautiful colours over at ColourQ this week:

Casology are keeping things SIMPLE this week so I hope this fits the bill. :)

I ended up with some extra die cut pieces so I made a second card with the same colours.
