It’s a Thursday and time for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! You are in for a treat with the creations of the hoppers. We have a color challenge this week and here’s what I made for it.

And here’s our challenge… I chose Petal Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Highland Heather and Pear Pizzazz.

This was a super fun card to make. I did need to set aside time for the watercolor paper to dry, but creating the mix of colors was extra fun. Here’s what the watercolor paper looked like AFTER the die cuts. So you can see, room enough for another set of dies :O)

I chose to use the Heart & Home 12 x 12 for part of the card front. I also used the Stitched Greenery Die that does more of an embossing effect than a die cut. I’ve used this die quite a bit and really like it. This strip is only 1 1/2″ wide but it adds great texture. Here’s another look.

Once I had my card base I began adhering the die cut images, mostly with liquid glue then other with dimensionals ~ and I kept adding until I had used everything. It’s a fun, spring look. Are you ready for Spring? I am! Although I enjoy winter, spring is one of my favorite seasons – probably because of the new growth of just about everything, from flowers to birds to buds on trees ~ you name it ~ it’s coming to life once more. Now that the card front was complete, I moved to the inside.

I stamped the sentiment from In Bloom stamp set on another piece of the Heart & Home 12 x 12 DSP in Highland Heather ink then die cut it with the label die in the Pierced Dies. Then added more of the die cut watercolor flowers. This is a pretty neutral card… can be used for birthday or a “pick-me-up” kind of card. I love having versatility in a card. Time to move to the envelope…

Yet another panel of the Heart & Home 12 x 12 DSP for the flap, then stamping the flower image in Petal Pink first then the cute center dots with Pumpkin Pie. And yes, straight from the In Bloom stamp set. And voila – this card is done. I confess, it isn’t quite what I had planned, but I still like it and can’t wait to send it to someone special.
