Today’s layout inspiration comes from the Freshly Made Sketches #229.
For the card, it’s all about the beautiful What I Love Stamp Set from Sale-a-bration. I started with Thick Whisper White cardstock. I then took the What I Love Stamp Set and stamped in 2-3/4″ squares different colored flowers. The stamp set is two-step and although mine aren’t perfectly lined up, I actually like it that way.
For the top flower, I used Calypso Coral as my light color (stamping off first for the lightest variation) and then Cajun Craze as the darkest color.
Pool Party was used as the lightest color for my blue flower (again stamping off first for the lightest part) and then I used the retired Coastal Cabana for the darkest shade.
My purple flower was made using Rich Razzleberry for the lighter shade and Blackberry Bliss for the darker shade. I then added a vertical strip of Venetian Trim to give it some texture.
The sentiment, “Know what I love?” is from the same What I Love Stamp Set and is stamped in Pool Party. The “You!” was stamped on the inside of the card.

I thought the color challenge by Sunday Stamps this week was really sweet! For pink I used Blushing Bride and for brown I used Chocolate Chip.
I combined it with the clean, crisp layout challenge from Freshly Made Sketches this week.
I started with a background of Chocolate Chip on Whisper White and layered it with Blushing Bride (embossed in Polka Dots) and layered over Whisper White.
My sentiment comes from the Botanicals For You Sale-a-bration Stamp Set and is stamped in Blushing Bride. I added a sliver of Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine over it. The flower comes from the Flower Shop Bundle. It’s stamped on Chocolate Chip and heat embossed in White. There’s an Iced Rhinestone at the center just to add a little bling.

For today’s card, I really wanted to show off the beautiful Sale-a-bration DSP, Wildflower Fields, using the Freshly Made Sketches 225 Challenge layout.
I started with a background of Blackberry Bliss and layered it with Whisper White and then Pool Party. I embossed the Pool Party in Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I cut some of the Wildflower Fields DSP and mounter it on Lost Lagoon.
For the sentiment, I stamped the Petite Pairs in Blackberry Bliss. I punched the Fun Flower first in Lost Lagoon and then layered it with more Wildflower Fields DSP. In the center of it I used a Crushed Curry button with a bit of Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine.
