Positive Inkers Blog Hop - July 2023

Hello Stamping Friends! I’m thrilled to join the fabulous Positive Inkers Design Team for our July 2023 Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the globe who are super-excited to share our love of creativity. I’m so happy you stopped by today! 

If this is the fist time you are visiting, please let me introduce myself. My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in San Antonio, Texas. Welcome!
Our theme for this month is: FLORAL

I have to admit, it was tough to decide what I wanted to use for my project. Lots of fabulous florals to love in the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. By nature, I always seem to want to reach for the newest stamp sets to create with. I always have to remind myself that there are SO many fantastic products that may have carried over into the catalog, but haven’t been used nearly enough. Anyone else? 

As I was rifling through my supplies trying to get my plan going for this card, I stopped on the Artistic Dies.The big, bold floral die is one of my favorites and makes a really awesome focal image on a card. It’s tough to tell in the photos but I cut the floral image out of Berry Burst Soft Shimmer Paper.  This paper has a subtle shimmer and adds some great detail to a card without being overly sparkly. I guess that can be such a thing. Or so I’m told. Haha! ;-)

*I’ve listed details for my projects below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.
Color Combo: 
The color combo for this card just makes me happy! Berry Burst is a color that an do no wrong, in my opinion. Paired with Bubble Bath…it’s a lovely match. On the Bubble Bath layer, I used a Blending Brush to add some Bubble Bath ink for soft shading. Then I stamped a few “drops” on the layer with the dotted image from the Layering Leaves stamp set. It’s subtle but looks pretty cool in person. 

I also embossed the front layer for some added texture using the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. The heat embossed sentiment really pops with the fun color combo, too. Finally, since no card is ever complete without some accessories…I added some silver trim and Iridescent Basic Pearls. I have the perfect person in mind to send this card to! 
I hope you enjoyed my project today and that you are inspired to create with your favorite florals, too! Please stop by to visit everyone on the hop and leave us a comment to say hello. We’d all love to hear from you and so appreciate you stopping by. If you are following the hop, my sweet friend Jo Blackman in the UK is your next destination.
