Happy thoughts with AHSC #66

I've been able to get quite a bit of craft time lately and I've been playing with some new product.  Wow, are you all going to love the new Stuff in the Annual Inspirations Catalogue.

Here is this week's sketch:

It's a somewhat simply design with so many options.  This sketch is wide open to interpretation.

Here is what I've come up with:

I've used one of our new paper packs, Brushed as my base for this card, and layered 2 rows of Honey Triangle washi tape to create the strip (I think if I was to do this again, I would of applied it to white cardstock first so that it stands out more). I used A Budding Friendship (D1602) to stamp the flowers, leaves and stems. The flowers are stamped in 3 of our new colour inks, Canary, Pixie and Flaxen(the centers).  The Pixie flower is layered, and the bottom flower I created more depth by adding some shading using out new markers, Cherry Pink and Tender Pink. The leaves are Pear, and the stems I used the Markers, Sap Green and Leaf Green. The Pink flower is popped with 3D Foam Tape to add dimension, and the leafs I curled using my bone folder. See below for a close up on the pink flower.

Now head on over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to see all the fabulous creations made by the wonderfully crafty ladies of the Design Team.


  1. I love how you used the washi tape on this card & making the pretty flowers pop was a cool idea!

  2. Great idea to curl up the leaves- I must try that!


I enjoy hearing from you, and love to get blog love for my creations. Thank you for visiting my blog.
