Awesomely Artistic in Perfectly Purple

Happy Saturday!  There is something about a mild spring-like Saturday in late winter that is so uplifting and energizing.  Although I did use some of that energy on a few household chores, the uplift came from creating this card for the Stamp, Ink, Paper sketch challenge.


I have been really loving the Awesomely Artistic stamp set lately.  I’m not sure what took me so long to give this set a work out but I can see so many possibilities…

I recently used the flowers on another card here.  This time however, I decided to color and snip them to create a more dimensional image.  I used markers to color the flowers and leaves and then used a little Dazzling Details in the center.  The dragonfly was stamped on Vellum in Versa-Mark and heat embossed using Iridescent embossing powder.

The embossing folder I used is from another company, but I thought it was the perfect background for this card.  The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set and the frame around it is also from Awesomely Artistic and is stamped in Wisteria Wonder. I should mention that  added two candy dots in the same color to the frame. The frame is easily cut using a die from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits.  I added Wisteria Wonder 1/2″ seam binding behind the flowers.

The inside sentiment is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set.  The font in this set is so feminine and pretty.

I did something a little different to the envelope flap.  It is embossed with the same folder I used on the card and then stamped the front to match the inside of the card.  I do like how everything coordinates.

I hope you enjoyed this project and perhaps it gave you a little “spring” lift as it did for me.  Please stop by again soon.
