Happy May, Everyone! April flew by, despite many challenges, and I have tremendous hope that we will finally start seeing some good news this month! Our color combo this month is a bright, sunny combo of Call Me Clover, Night of Navy, and Pineapple Punch. TWO of these colors are retiring June 2nd, so if you love them, stock up while you can!
I realized last night about 9:30 pm that I had this hop today. For some reason, I thought it was NEXT week. Oops! This card layout is pretty much my go-to layout when I need a card quickly. It’s simple in design and easy to create, and by adding texture, embellishments, etc., you can dress it up to look really nice! Some added touches on this card include paint spatters in the background, the use of Shimmery White cardstock for the top layer, stitched edging, pearls, an embossed middle layer, and a simple bow!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Night of Navy cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Call Me Clover cardstock layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches
Shimmery White cardstock layer: 3 x 4-3/8 inches
Shimmery White cardstock insert: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
My flowers were stamped in Black StazOn ink, and watercolored using Aqua Painters. After coloring the flowers, I swirled some green into the yellow before I did the paint spatters, and though it’s hard to tell from the pictures, some of them have an almost ombre effect! The flowers are from the Painted Poppies stamp set and the sentiment is from the Here’s a Card set.
As mentioned above, TWO of the colors we used today are retiring June 2nd. They are Pineapple Punch and Call Me Clover. Be sure to visit the online store HERE to stock up on your favorites before they’re gone for good! Typically, retiring color products sell out quickly, so order ASAP to avoid disappointment!
Be sure to check out the Last Chance Products section of the online store for ALL retiring products, in addition to the retiring In Colors! Some items have been marked down, and ALL retiring products are only available while supplies last.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are happy and well. Please continue to the next stop on our hop, which is Melanie Hockin’s page!
Enjoy your day! 🙂
