floral happiness

Welcome to my crafty blog. I decided we needed a bright and cheerful card today, as the weather here in London has not been great. This is another one of the new sets from Julie Hickey – ‘floral happiness’, and I thought it was perfect for this week’s photo inspiration challenge from Just Add Ink. I also used the grid from TicTacToe for several of the elements – I went across the bottom row with embossing / layers / scallops

I started by brushing some clouds into the centre of a 6×6 card blank using the Claritystamp mask. I’ve used these to meet the ‘scallops’ criterion from the TicTacToe challenge grid. I then die cut a frame from yellow card and embossed it with the Stampin’ Up! ‘pinewood planks’ folder, to pick up the door in just Add Ink’s photo.

I next stamped the floral spray from Julie Hickey’s set and coloured it using Artistry inks and a waterbrush. Once dry, I fussy cut it and attached it to the lower edge of the frame with foam pads, to give the layer some dimension.

I finished by stamping the sentiment in Archival ‘watering can’ using one of the stamps from Julie Hickey’s ‘positive wishes’ set.

This isn’t my usual colour palette, but I think it turned out pretty well.

  1. I love all the eye-catching elements you combined here Deborah – the bold yellow woodgrain frame, filled with soft billowing clouds and then that lovely floral spray at the bottom! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim

  2. What a great contrast between the “scalloped” gray clouds and the wonderful bright yellow wood embossed frame, as well as the pretty floral bouquet. Beautifully done, Deborah! Thanks so very much for joining us at the Tic Tac Toe challenge this week!
