Azalea Friendship

3/1/22 Top 5 at QKR Stampede!
3/6/22 Sweet Pick at Cupcake Inspirations!

Hey everybody! I hope you’re having a great weekend and doing something fun! You know where I like to be, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have a card to share this morning that I created for Prickley Pear Stamps – and yep, you guessed it… another fun fold! This is a side fold which I really love, and I also really love a pink and green color combo! This card features our Sketched Florals Azalea stamp set along with our Flower Hug For You – Coneflower stamp set that I used for the inside sentiment.

I cut the side fold card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock and Hot Off The Press Sweet Pea patterned papers which I adhered together and then to the card base. I stamped the image from the Sketched Florals Azalea stamp set in black ink on Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers and cut it with the My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Square STAX Die-namics. I layered the image on green cardstsock and adhered it to the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment in green ink and then added gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Morganite Muse Embellishment Mix and Trinity Stamps Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix to complete the front. And I’m so irritated that one of the gemstones shifted and I didn’t notice it until I was perusing photos and no longer had the card in my possession. *sigh* And yes, I know, once you’ve seen it you cannot un-see it! Bahahaha! :P

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of patterned paper and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Flower Hug For You – Coneflower stamp set in green ink and layered the panel on green cardstock.

And one more look… love how this turned out! This stamp set is so gorgeous!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
