Thinking, thinking, thinking...

Good morning! Popping in to share another quick challenge card! Sometimes getting back from vacation makes it hard to get my Mojo going - and while I have been working on lots of fun Design Team stuff for next weeks new release at My Craft Spot, sometimes a good challenge or two is the perfect way to get myself feeling creative again! Here is what I put together this time:

I made this for the Avery Elle June Challenge using this sketch:

And used these beautiful colors from this weeks color story at the Play Date Cafe:

I used the Avery Elle set called Petals and Stems - so beautiful and fun for layering! I inked them up with Versamagic inks, then layered them all together - stamping one separately to fussy cut out and layer on top of my sentiment square. 

The sentiment square was cut with my Lil' Inker's stitched rectangles, and I stamped the first part of the sentiment in each of my colored inks before attaching it with foam adhesive and adding the flower at the bottom.

Added some clear sequins, a tiny bit of Stickles to the center of the flowers, and layered strips of coordinating pattern paper from an MME 6x6 paper pad on the side.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!


  1. Gorgeous card, Heather! So glad that you had some fun with the sketch! I cannot get enough of the Petals and Stems stamp set myself. The images are so pretty, right? :) I love how your ink and paper matches perfectly! And the little repetition of words on the rectangle is just clever and fun! Have a great week!

  2. This is such a beautiful card! Your stamping is fantastic! Thank you for playing along with The Play Date Cafe!
