Jari Francis, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Stampin’ Up! Irresistibly Floral Hello Card

Happy Saturday!  My share today is using the Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper as its starting point.  


Irresistibly Floral


The sketch was inspired by the one this week at Pals Paper Arts,  PPA 312




And I’m playing along with the color challenge over at Can You Case It? CYCI 131



I have to admit, this color theme was really a challenge for me, as I do not normally tend to use those 3 together, however, I am happy with the results.

I chose a pattern in the Irresistibly Floral DSP pack that coordinates with the May Flowers Framelits Die I used for my flower, and sponged it in Smoky Slate.  I then framed it in a little larger panel of Basic Gray card stock, using liquid glue.  Next I die cut 3 flowers in Daffodil Delight, curled the edges a little and glued them together randomly so that they would stay together, but not lay flat.  The center is a Daffodil Delight Enamel Shape dot. The leaves were also die cut from the May Flowers Framelits in Basic Gray card stock.

I needed some darker ribbon than I had in my stash, so I dyed a length of White Organza Ribbon by pulling it across the Smoky Slate ink pad while holding it down with  a piece of sponge. The ink dyed it a little darker than I thought it would be, but I decided to leave it alone!  I used Tear & Tape to adhere it to the front and the back of this panel.  The Hello sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases and is stamped in Tuxedo Memento Black onto a panel of Whisper White, then die cut with the smallest Banners die.  I framed it with another small Banners die in Basic Gray card stock and popped it onto the front with dimensionals.  The Daffodil Delight Flower and Basic Gray leaves are attached with small amounts of liquid glue.

I used the Flourish Thinlets die to add a little banner across the bottom in Daffodil Delight.
