Ink. Stamp. Share. July Showcase Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share July Showcase Blog Hop as we showcase the projects we are currently working on. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you to get creative. 
One of the things I love about a new catalog, is participating in catalog swaps. It is where you swap card designs with other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and in return you get a bunch of different cards that are great for providing inspiration and ideas for the demonstrators and their customers. The card design I am sharing today is a card I created for a New Catalog Card Swap I participated in recently. I chose to use the beautiful Hand-Penned Petals Bundle and combined it with the lovely Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder to create this pretty clean and simple card design. I was inspired by a card design that I saw on Lyssa Zwolanek's blog and I made changes to create my own design. I chose to use several of the new 2021-2023 In Colors including Polished Pink, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.

I love the vibrant color combination I chose for this card design and the wonderful floral embossed background adds lovely texture to the design. I stamped the floral design with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the right side of the Basic White layer and colored the image with Polished Pink, Soft Succulent and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Markers. I attached the die cut scalloped edge border to the back of the focal layer and added it to the front of the card. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Silver embossing powder and die cut it with one of the small dies from the Ornate Frames Dies. I attached it to the left side of the Basic White layer with Stampin' Dimensionals and colored two small Basic Pearls with the Light Evening Evergreen Stampin' Blend Marker to embellish the label. To finish off the card design, I tied a small knot with a piece of Polished Pink Open Weave ribbon and attached it to the stem of the flowers with a Mini Glue Dot.
