Sunday Stamps! #159

Hello, stamping friends.  Welcome back to a new challenge at Sunday Stamps!  This week we are working with a color challenge.
Here's what I made using the Graceful Garden stamp set.

I had so much fun experimenting with the large flower image in this set. Here's this weeks challenge:

Stampin' UP! colors I used to create my card are: Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo.  

And did you notice the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder? LOVE.  I used my brayer and inked White Craft ink across the raised side of the folder before running it thru my Big Shot.  It gives it a soft, elegant look.

To create the roses, I stamped them and then water colored the edges of the petals in the same color ink using my Aqua Painter.  The vellum leaves are from the Oh So Eclectic Bundle.  I haven't touched that set yet- yikes!  I think I have too many sets, if that's possible....nooooooo!

Did you know that if you place an order of at least $40 using my August Host Code, you can earn the Garden Trellis Embossing folder for FREE?  See my rewards page HERE.

Now its time to head over to the Sunday Stamps! challenge blog and see what the other design team members created and then join us.  You have until Friday, August 25, 2017, to play along.  Hope to see you join the fun!

Happy Stamping!

    Your card has so much to appreciate! I like the reverse embossing on the backdrop, the doily and the vellum leaves is brilliant. Great card - I'm sure it will be displayed with pride by someone special.

  5. Wow...I totally glossed over that Garden Trellis EF but it is a stand-out the way you've colored are the roses! Stunning!

    1. Yes, I overlooked this myself...glad to add it to my "stash". :)
