Hello and happy 2023!  I'm so glad that you're here and hope you are having a wonderful day!  Today I am hopping with some of my talented stamping friends from around the world who love creating with Stampin' Up!® products as much as I do!  We love hopping on the second weekends of the month - Saturday or Sunday depending on where you are in the world - and love sharing lots of inspiration with you.  There are several of us hopping today - you will find the list to follow along towards the bottom of my blog post - so sit back and relax with your favorite cuppa as you peruse the hop.  

This month we are sharing projects based on our Sketch Challenge!  I am sure that you will find lots of different interpretations and inspiration from this fun sketch.   

Today's Project

Today's project that I have created for my parents as a Christmas thank you which they can enjoy year round using this month's sketch challenge!

Project Details

The Two-Tone Flora Bundle is part of the amazing Fancy Flora Suite Collection along with the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper and Fine Shimmer Paper Pack.  All three are featured in this card along with the Love For You Dies.

I love my greens and my mom loves her yellows so this sheet from the Fancy Flora 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper was the perfect for my parents.

The solid flora images were stamped and off-stamped with Daffodil Delight ink.  The detailed images were stamped with Crushed Curry ink for the stamped images and with Daffodil Delight ink for the off-stamped images.  The leaves were stamped with Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent inks.  

The Love for You Dies were used along with a strip of the gold Fine Shimmer Paper and a bit of Adhesive Sheet to die-cut the sentiment.  The center strip is also the gold Fine Shimmer Paper.  Soft Succulent Festive Pearls were added as a finishing touch for this card made with love.

The inside was stamped and layered to compliment the card front allowing plenty of room for me to write a message full of love and appreciation for a blessed Christmas.  The Basic White Medium Envelope was stamped and off-stamped on the front and flap with Soft Succulent ink to complete the card ensemble.

More Inspiration

I hope that you have enjoyed this sketch and will use it yourself to create some cards for friends and family.  Up next on the blog hop is Aurélie where you can continue along to see what she and all the others have created.  I am sure you will be filled with lots of inspiration!  And should you be inspired, please leave us a comment...  we love to hear from you. 


Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world!  
Have a blessed day!
