We Create Subtles Collection Blog Hop

Welcome to the We Create Subtles Collection Blog Hop where we are featuring colors from the Stampin' Up! Subtles Collection. These beautiful, soft pastel colors are wonderful for Spring and can be use for a variety of occasions. I hope that our ideas will help inspire you to try creating your own projects using the colors from this collection.
For my card design this month, I chose to use the Level 1 Sale-a-bration Reward stamp set, Part Of My Story (item #149719), which you can earn Free with a qualifying order (US$50 not including S&H and Taxes). I just love this collection of sentiments for creating beautiful cards to let the people you love know how much you care.
I chose to use Petal Pink cardstock for the card base and I added a layer of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, which I embossed with the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item #149698), which is also a Level 1 Sale-a-bration Reward that you can earn for Free. The detail created by this embossing folder is simply amazing and I just love the way it added texture to the background of this card front. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the embossed areas to add a touch of shimmer.

I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock with Soft Sea Foam Classic ink and punched it out using the new Story Label Punch (item #150076), which is part of the Sale-a-bration Coordination products available to order March 1st-31st, or while supplies last. It coordinates perfectly with the Part Of My Story Sale-a-bration stamp set. I attached a piece of Petal Pink 5/8" Variegated Ribbon from the Occasions Catalog to the card front and attached the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals on top of the ribbon. To complete the card, I colored some Basic Pearls with the Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blends Marker and added them to the sentiment and to embellish the embossed card front. 
I just love the soft, romantic look that this color combination creates. This clean and simple card design could be used for birthdays, weddings and thank you cards, just by changing the sentiment to suit the occasion. Remember that March is the last month to take advantage of the great rewards during Sale-a-bration. If you live in the U.S. and do not have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
