Ink. Stamp. Share. April Blog Hop Color Challenge

It's time to hop along with the Ink. Stamp. Share. April Blog Hop with a fun Color Challenge to inspire us all. We have been challenged to use Rococo Rose, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and So Saffron in our project and I just love the Spring feel of this color combination. 
For my card design today, I decided to use one of my old favorite stamp sets, This Little Piggy (item #151227) from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I am sad to see that it is retiring, so I wanted to show it some love. I combined it with the Daisy Lane Bundle (item #151118) to create this sweet Spring card design. 
 To create this card, I chose to use Rococo Rose cardstock for the card base and added a layer of So Saffron cardstock that I embossed with the retiring Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog to add some texture to the background. I created the focal panel from Whisper White cardstock and the frame from Rococo Rose cardstock using the Layering Squares Dies (item # 151772). I stamped the image from the This Little Piggy stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image using Rococo Rose, So Saffron , Granny Apply Green and Highland Heather Stampin' Blends Markers. 
 I added a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (item #146912) across the center of the So Saffron card front and attached the square focal image to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals, positioning it over the ribbon. 
To create the daisy, I stamped the medium size daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set twice onto Whisper White cardstock using Highland Heather Classic ink. I then punched out both images using the Medium Daisy Punch. I colored the daisy images with Clear Wink of Stella to give them a soft shimmer and attached them together using Snail Adhesive, offsetting them to create a fuller looking flower. 
 Using the Leaf Punch, I punched out some leaves from Granny Apple Green cardstock and attached them to the back of the daisy. I added the daisy to the card front using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, positioning it to cover the top left corner of the focal image. For a touch of bling, I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the center of the Daisy to complete the card design. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design inspires you to create your own fun Spring projects with these beautiful colors. The possibilities are endless.
