I made this trio of cards, starting with a really simple version at the left and then stepping it up by adding more details for each of next two cards. The stamp set is Lovely Inside & Out along with the Lovely Words Thinlits. To step up the flowers in the second and third cards I used Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.
The colors are Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide, four of Stampin’ Up’s new In Colors
for 2017-19. Here are the three samples shown separately:
This is a great card for beginners, with basic stamping and a die-cut word. I’ll step it up a bit for the second card below…
On this second “stepped up” version I have added Powder Pink swirls and a glitter dot on each flower. Finally, on the third version below, I added punched out flowers popped up on top of the stamped ones, plus a swirl and a glitter dot. These swirls are the negative portion of the swirls on card #2. I also added some leafy Tranquil Tide swirls behind the flowers and changed the sentiment just a bit.
Which one is your favorite? I typically would not pair Lemon Lime Twist with Powder Pink, but somehow I think it worked on these cards.
