My card today was created by my very talented and generous upline, Sarah Wills! I got this card yesterday, along with some other goodies from her, and it completely made my day! Sarah makes the most gorgeous cards, and I always love the colors she puts together! For this card, she used the Blended Seasons stamp set, which is part of the Color Your Season Promotion. This set, along with coordinating cutting dies, are only available until August 31st or while supplies last. Here is a peek at the stamp set:
This set is so perfect for year round crafting! It’s got flowers and leaves for Spring and Summer, leaves and wheat for Autumn, and holly and bells for Christmas/Winter. For this card, Sarah paired the large floral stamp with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. I just love how the flowers look against the grain of the wood!
The main color Sarah used on this card is Calypso Coral. The image was colored using Stampin’ Blends. I am assuming that the yellow in the center of the flowers is Daffodil Delight and that the leaves are either Old Olive or Granny Apple Green. (If I get a definite answer on the green, I will let you know!) She also added just a pop of black by adding a small piece of black cardstock cut with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, as well as the stamping the sentiment in black. I love the contrast of the black against the lighter colors!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Calypso Coral card base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 5-1/2 inches and folded in half)
Very Vanilla middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
Wood Textures DSP top layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches
Very Vanilla banner piece: 3/8 x 2 inches
Black punched piece: 1/2 x 1-5/8 inches (approximate)
I just love getting happy mail, and it’s always a happy day when I get mail from Sarah! I just love this card she created, and may have to make more of these for myself! Again, if you love this stamp set and bundle, there are only a few days left to get it.
