Another Side to Sweet Soirée

Hi there

The Sweet Soirée Suite has to be one of my favourites from the Occasions Catalogue. I think it started when I was fortunate enough to get the stamp set for free from the box of goodies at the last Stampin' Up! OnStage event. It is one of the fun things about the event - all the new products used for the make and takes are divided up amongst the people at the table.

The bold floral papers with the silver accents really stand out in the Sweet Soirée Specialty Designer paper pack, but although not as obvious, is this pretty blue, yellow and olive spotted design. Blue, yellow and white is one of my favourite colour combos because it is fresh and bright and for those in the northern hemisphere, epitomises spring. I think it would also make a lovely Mother's Day card.

I've layered some of the pretty spotted paper onto a Marina Mist mat and then added a strip of Marina Mist card stock across the centre that has been embossed with the 'Simple Stripes' embossing folder. Some of the beautiful silver metallic edge ribbon was wrapped around the whole panel and finished with a knot at the right end and then added to the Daffodil Delight card base.

The focus of the embellishment is the silver embossed vellum flower spray, which I have coloured on the reverse with my Stampin' Blends alcohol markers (I thought I would give it a try), but you can use Stampin' Write markers as well. This die cut  and many more come from the Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit. They are perfect to colour coordinate with other elements on your project. I adhered it to the stitched oval by placing a glue dot underneath the Clear Faceted Gem and in the centre of the yellow flower. The Stitched Oval was adhered to a Marina Mist scalloped oval and then onto a plain Silver Foil oval and popped up on the left side.

For the inside of the card, I have a Marina Mist mat for my writing panel, which I have decorated on the right hand side for a change. I've used a small strip of the spotted paper and a band of the olive and silver foil paper (unfortunately, it is the opposite side to the spotted design). At the top is a small cluster of stamped and die cut flowers and some coordinating greenery.

My clean and layered card fits well with the The Card Concept Challenge this week - 'Spring has Sprung'. This is the inspiration photo they have provided.

This scene certainly screams 'spring' with the bright yellow and white features and touches of blue and what looks like green to me in the striped carpet.
