I wish this card looked as pretty in a photograph as it does in person! But glitter papers are very hard to get right. I had these Sunflowers die cut and sitting on my desk for the longest time. I am sure I am not alone in that when I have something cut out that I love, I hate to throw it away. Today was the day I was finally inspired to make something from these sparkly, wonderful die cuts! And seeing a scrap of Artistry Blooms DSP was the inspiration!
The color combination is a little bit wild, but I think the Granny Apple Green in the DSP works wonderfully with the Mango Madness and Rich Razzleberry card stock. They complement each other well and play up the colors in the Sunflower well too. I used a simple message from the Many Messages stamp set. And no, I did not cut out all the sentiments with Mango Madness! Using the Stamparatus, I was able to place the stamp and a scrap of card stock to stamp only this sentiment. Luckily I had a Stampin’ Spot and could get precise on the one sentiment. But you could use a sponge dauber or Stampin’ Blend. The sentiment and the die were perfect for adding a sentiment in just the right spot!
A few Artistry Blooms sequins and a bit of ribbon colored with a Mango Madness Stampin Blend finished the card. The ribbon I used is retiring soon. Boo Hoo! But if you love it like I do, its on sale while supplies last! It has definitely been my go to for custom color ribbons. So, I may have to stock up. I am hoping Stampin’ Up! comes up with something new and fabulous to replace the metallic edged ribbons!
If you have ordered from me in the past year, then your brand new Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is coming soon! You will just love it. We cannot show you the inside yet, but here is the beautiful cover showing a peek of the fabulousness coming to your mailbox soon!
