Hi everyone! It’s that time of the year when it should be cooling down for my friends in the States! I know many of you have had record hot temps this summer! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Stinkin’ Inkers and I’m proud to share my DT inspiration project for our Random Acts of Kindness challenge! We’d love to see you create a project depicting encouragement, thinking of you or just because. I created a ‘thinking of you’ card featuring the gorgeous Hero Arts Color Layering Water Lilies stamps, dies and inks.
I absolutely love these color layering stamps. I also have the coordinating inks and dies in my stash. I stamped all the elements on ivory cardstock, cut them with the dies, and set them aside. I cut a green background piece and added a pink/ivory polkadot strip at the bottom. I rounded the bottom right corner. I divided the two pieces with some glitter Washi Tape, added the stamped elements, and finished the front with Carnation Pink Crystal Drops.
I embellished the inside panel with a leftover strip of the pink/ivory polkadot paper used on the front, layered it on the green paper and stamped the sentiment. I had a leftover flower that I had stamped so I used it on the inside. ;)
Here’s one more look… and it’s in one of my favorite color combos of pink and green. Love, love, love!
