Good morning! Today’s card is made with the pretty sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts cling stamp set and the True Love designer series paper. I used the retiring Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends to color the flowers in the DSP and paired it with a Purple Posy Card base for a floral black and lavender card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I colored a floral panel of the True Love designer series paper with Stampin’ Blends – Dark Purple Posy and Mango Melody for the flowers and Granny Apple Green for the leaves. I colored a strip of the same paper for the inside at the same time. I adhered the larger panel to the top of a Basic Black mat and adhered a panel of the striped DSP to the bottom (there’s a slight overlap).
I stamped the beautiful sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Purple Posy and cut it out with the pretty Story Label punch. I used the Story Label punch again to cut two more punches from Basic Black. I cut one in half and adhered it to the back of the other one with 1/4″ space between them to make a longer mat. I adhered the stamped Purple Posy Punch on top to create the layered label.
I adhered the label to the DSP panel with dimensionals and wrapped a length of glittered black organdy ribbon around the seam and tied a knot. I adhered the panel to the front of a Purple Posy card base with dimensionals and finished the card front with three clear epoxy drops.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower from the Forever and Always photopolymer stamp set in stamped-off Highland Heather ink over the sentiment and trimmed the bottom with the colored DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts stamp set has beautiful sentiments in an elegant mixed font and it goes well with many other stamp sets and designer series papers. The florals in the True Love designer series paper pack are perfect for coloring, so are really versatile for matching any color palette that you may to use such as the retiring Purple Posy!
