Well Said for PP424

Happy Sunday! This week at The Paper Players I am thrilled to be hosting our first color challenge of 2019. I absolutely love this cheery color combo and I hope you do as well. I sure hope you will check out the challenge this week and play along! 
One of my favorite bundles in the new Stampin’ Up!® Occasions Catalog is the Well Said stamp set and coordinating Well Written Framelits Dies. I just love how you can mix up the stamps and Framelits to create phrases in mixed fonts. There are a LOT of options for this set, too. It really is a “must have” to create cards for any occasion. Plus there are some fun shape Framelits in the set as well, like the leaves, butterfly and flowers. 

For my card, I really wanted to focus on keeping the layout pretty clean to showcase this beautiful bundle. In addition to the challenge colors of Grapefruit GroveDaffodil Delight and Pool Party, I used Granny Apple Green as my fourth color. That color really pairs well with so many colors, I love it! I added the sentiment to a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to make it the focal point of the card. 
One tip: I did add some Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the cardstock before I cut out the “happy” sentiment and the little flowers. It made it SO easy to stick them to the card, without having to use liquid glue. Liquid glue can get a little messy when you have smaller “bits” so those adhesive sheets are amazing. Then, I added Mini Stampin' Dimensionals behind the flowers and also added Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the circle to pop them off the card a bit. 

I also colored the Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker to bring in a bit more of that color. Since the markers are alcohol-based, it is super-easy to create rhinestones or pearls in any color you’d like. 
Finally a quick look at the inside of the card. I used another sentiment from the Well Said stamp set along with a couple butterflies from the Beauty Abounds stamp set.
