Shades of Pink Hyacinth

Today I'm playing along with the Sunday Stamps Challenge 200th challenge.  I've always enjoyed their challenge and hope it continues for many more challenges.  Here is a pretty pink hyacinth I made to celebrate the occasion.

I started with a Powder Pink card base.  To that I attached a layer of Soft Sea Foam after embossing it using the Candy Stripes Embossing Folder from Tim Holtz.  The hyacinth is one I did a while ago.  I used the Build-A-Flower:  Hyacinth stamp set and dies by Altenew.  I used foam tape to pop it up for some dimension.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the hyacinth.  I added some Snowball Droplets from Ellen Hutson   For the finishing touch, I added sparkle to the flower using Spectrum Noir's Sparkle Pen.  A simple but pretty Spring card.


The sketch I used is from the Sunday Stamps Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.

WWC212 - Tristan's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Well, Wednesday has come around again and it's time for our "All About Occasions" challenge at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Tristan is hosting this week.  We'd love to see all of your creations, so join in and celebrate occasions with us.


For my card, I used a white Center Step Card from Divinity Designs as my base.  To that, I added layers of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper for a pretty background.  The flowers are ones I had done when I first got the Wonderful Romance stamp and Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up!  I made up several sets using Primascolor Colored Pencils and Gamsol.  The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set by Stampin' Up! and it was stamped using Jet Black ink from Altenew.

You can never have too many thank you cards.  I find I'm always needing one so here is one I made for my stash.  I like to keep a good supply on hand so when I need one, I have it.

What you can't see in the photo is the fact that the flowers all have such a lovely shimmer to them.  I love the way it looks.

Inks:  Shadow Creek, Midnight Violet, Lavender Fields, Deep Iris, Maple Yellow (Altenew); Blackberry Bliss (Stampin' Up!)
