This week I've taken my inspiration from the card above, which I've cropped out of the banner photo so you can see it more clearly. Even though the background designer paper is very busy, the embellishment still pops, so I thought I would try this with the floral design from the Painted Seasons Designer Paper.

As you can see from my finished card, I didn't achieve my goal! I adhered the paper to the front of the card and added the embellishment and my brain rebelled! It just looked way too busy. So I took the remaining strip left  from my 6" x 6" square and started again and this is where it ended up. I have embossed the right section with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder, leaving the strip of floral paper on the left.

I stamped the two flowers in Poppy Parade ink and the leaves in Call Me Clover ink. They were cropped with the coordinating Painted Seasons Framelits Dies that will be available to purchase from 1 March. You can see the amazing detail in the flowers that you get from just one impression of these Distinktive style stamps. Less is more with these stamps, so don't over ink them. If your ink pad is juicy, use a teaspoon to push the ink down into the foam pad. It is quick and works perfectly every time. The greeting is from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, stamped in Early Espresso ink and layered on the Call Me Clover banner. All of these elements were layered onto the largest of the stitched circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I did add a Vellum circle behind to add interest and soften it.

I wanted to keep the inside soft, so I have a white writing panel and a strip of the designer paper at the bottom. It is the reverse side of the floral and I added another stamped flower in the corner.

Your card is stunning! I CASEd it for my class ladies, as I knew they'd love it as much as I did, and I was right!

Kathryn Mangelsdorf

Judy, as always your attention to detail is beautiful, really love this new stamp set and matching designer series paper.

Peta Stephen

Beautiful card Judy, with just the right amount of DSP. Love the inside

Julia Quinn

Oh this is gorgeous, and I'm with you, I find it hard to totally cover the front of a card with busy DSP. What you've done is just gorgeous.


This is a truly beautiful card Judy. I'm in love with the Painted Seasons paper.


Once again a stunning card. I love the subtle touch of the vellum behind the sentiment circle. So pretty.
