I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Bundle and Gorgeous Grunge to create my card for today.
My card design was inspired by the Paper Payers PP#333 sketch challenge:
I started with a Whisper White card stock panel. I took out the largest flower die from Stylish Stems, which is part of the Special Reason Bundle, placed it onto my Whisper White panel and die cut it. That left me with a cut out that needed to be backed with some color, so I adhered a small panel of the Cupcakes and Carousels DSP behind it. (See it peeking through?)
Then, I cut another of the large flower dies in Calypso Coral, pulled out all of the scrap pieces, and placed it back in the Big Shot with the large flower outline die and cut it out again. I placed that flower on top of the spot where I had cut it out of the Whisper White card stock and carefully glued it on top of it so that it looks like a Calypso Coral flower head.
Next, I inked up the dotted stamp from Gorgeous Grunge in So Saffron ink and stamped it off on a scrap piece of paper twice before stamping directly onto the Whisper White panel near the bottom left and top right. The smaller flower images from Special Reason were stamped next with Peekaboo Peach ink onto panels of Whisper White. Once I cut them out with the Stylish Stems dies, I pulled out my blender pen and some Calypso Coral and So Saffron inks and colored them in. Three leaves were stamped in Wild Wasabi and die cut. I used Wild Wasbi card stock to cut out the two open leaves. My sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black directly onto the art panel. I completed the front with a gold sequin and two gold Metallic Enamel Shapes.
The art panel was adhered to a panel of Calypso Coral, then popped onto the Wild Wasbi card stock base with Dimensionals.
In keeping with the theme of my card, I cut another flower for the inside panel just as I had done for the front of the card except this one was the smaller of the flowers from the Special Reason Bundle. The stem with leaves is another die from Stylish Stems, cut out from Wild Wasabi card stock.
A complete list of Stampin’ Up! supplies and card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of my post.
