Friendship Card for PP434

Looking for a friendship card? Ready for lots of layers?  It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

friendship cardThis week, the talented Joanne has a very versatile sketch for us.  I love that you can keep this sketch relatively clean, or that you can add a layered focal point.  I went all out and layered flowers and leaves.  I hope you enjoy today’s card.

friendship cardThe Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Stampin’ Up!® has so many wonderful floral sets, sometimes it’s hard to decide which one to use. I have been wanting to ink up the Beautiful Promenade set from the Annual Catalog for a long time.  I was sold on it from the moment I saw Shelli demonstrate it.  But other sets just kept finding their way to my table…especially as we entered the Holiday Catalog season. (Let’s face it – no one does Christmas better than Stampin’ Up!) After the holidays, the Occasions catalog made its appearance, and I just HAD to play with the awesome new goodies.  Well, Beautiful Promenade…today is your day!!!

friendship cardThe flowers were inked in Grapefruit Grove.  I used a Sponge Dauber to add the Daffodil Delight centers.  All of the foliage was die cut using the Beautiful Layers thinlits, as was the Whisper White geometric doily.

friendship cardI stamped a few Coastal Cabana triangles on the Smoky Slate designer paper to add a touch of color, and then I heat embossed sections with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder® to add some texture and shine.

friendship cardThe sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon is a perfect accent, as is the cut out border.  It’s part of the Beautiful Layers thinlits collection, which comes with the Beautiful Promenade bundle.

  6. Wow, this is amazing! I love the flower, but was even more intrigued by that awesome background!

  7. Ann, another stunning card. I love the stamped triangles on the base layer, they provide a wonderful background to your beautiful flowers. I also love how the sponging in the middle of the flowers highlights them and really makes them pop. Hope you having a fabulous week
