Traditionally I don’t use a lot of the purples in my stamping projects – I don’t really know why. In fact when I was little I loved purple – my bedroom had wallpaper with a floral print in purple and brown and I had a canopy bed and it was all decked out in purple. I must have liked purple at some point in time. But a while back when I did an inventory of my ink and card stock the ones that were missing – were all shades of purple. But I have rediscovered Perfect Plum so you may start seeing more projects with some purple.
This card came from a card I saw on Heather Summers blog. Her’s was a big square card and I think she got the idea from someone else. These were the colors that she used and they really were pretty together – Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, and Baja Breeze. I wanted a card that would fit in the open-ended envelopes and ended up with this creation.
I used Pocket Silhouettes to create the greenery. The “thanks so much” is the new hostess set in the Summer Mini Catalog called Swirls & Curls Verses. Then I punched out flowers with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Punch and layered the pieces and added some details.
flower 1 is Perfect Plum base, Certainly Celery for the middle and Baja Breeze for the top with a Certainly Celery brad in the center.
flower 2 is Certainly Celery base that has been cut in between the petals, the center is the Bitty Punch circle that was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder
flower 3 is a Baja Breeze base that was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, the top is Perfect Plum and then a Bitty Button threaded with White Bakers Twine for the center.
Have a nice day – we are expecting rain and storms this afternoon/evening – ugh – hopefully no tornados.
