Papertrey Ink - Blog Hop



May Blog HopSpring and summer tend to be the most colorful out of the four seasons. One color in particular that evokes the warmer weather is yellow!!! Your challenge this month is to use this trendsetting color to the best of it's potential! You can use it in small pieces as an accent or as the main color. Experiment & play, discovering new color combos that perhaps you hadn't thought of before. No matter what, just have fun and enjoy the feeling of happiness that this cheerful color evokes!

Wishing You... is a new Stamp set from Papertrey Ink.
I thought it needed a bright card to do the stamp set justice so here it is, I inked the tulip heads with summer sunrise palette ink then smooched some pure poppy ink at the top of the flower heads then cut them out, the dots and wording are stamps from the same set I used these in place of the stems, although they are in the set to use.
The base card is white the deep orange overlay card has been had a border punched out using the EK Success border punch then a bright yellow card embossed with the cuttlebug swiss dots folder and the corners punched using a Kreaxions punch





I used the Sympathy stamp set by Papertrey Ink to create my card, the top part of the card was stamped with the flourish stamp then I cut a diagonal slit in the card and slotted the oval nestabilities die though the slit so that only part of the card was die cut, I then cut around the rest of the flourish to finish this.

I used a punch to cut out the flowers and added a pearl to each of them.
