CCMC398 What I Love

Hello all!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  First…can I get you to say a little prayer for my son…he’s having surgery today due to a sports injury…and will be laid up for about 4-5 weeks!  With a 17 month old and a new baby on the way, things will be crazy, I’m sure!  I’ll be helping out as much as I can.


But, it’s time for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  It’s a pretty color combination and, of course, perfect for flowers, so that’s the direction I went!  Some really awesome cards this week from our Challenge Team, so make sure to check them out over on Create with Connie and Mary!



Here’s my card.  I don’t know why, but I feel like my Watermelon Wonder Ink is more red than dark pink!  Oh well!


CCMC398 What I Love

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White, folded in half.
  • On the 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White, I started by stamping the flourish in Timeless Textures twice with Soft Suede Ink.  Then I added leaves from What I Love (a FREE SAB set) with Mossy Meadow Ink, and some splatters in Timeless Textures with Watermelon Wonder Ink.  This layer is added to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The full inside image of the flower is stamped twice with Watermelon Wonder Ink on scrap Whisper White, then Soft Suede added with the outline image, they were hand-cut out and placed over the background images with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Several small pearls were added in a cluster for each flower.
  • Thank You from What I Love was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink close to the images.


That’s it!  A CAS design!  I love it!

The textures work perfectly with this flower set. Very elegant and classy with a touch of shabby chic! What a wonderful combination! I’ll be praying for your son and I hope he’s on his way to a speedy recovery!
