For today’s card, I had fun playing along with the Mojo Monday challenge.
I started with a background of Cajun Craze and layered it with hello Honey. I then took two different patterns from the Botanical Gardens DSP and layered the card with 1/3 of one and 2/3 of another, the second one layered with the Botanical Gardens Vellum (from Sale-a-bration).
I then created my own pattern with the Botanical Blooms Stamp Set in Cajun Craze, Hello Honey, Old Olive, and Mint Macaron.
I then used a third pattern from the Botanical Gardens DSP and punched it with a 2″ punch and layered it with the sentiment “Happy Day” from the Perfect Pairings (from Sale-a-bration) in Cajun Craze.

My inspiration for today’s card definitely comes from the beautiful sunsets we’ve been having here lately in Upstate New York. Excuse the blurriness, but it was going down so fast, I just wanted to capture the gloriousness of it while I could.
When I saw this week’s CASE(E) this Sketch Challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
You see, one of the things I LOVE about Stampin’ Up! are the many variations of a single color. Generically speaking, yellow is yellow, but at the same time it can have a deeper, brighter, or orangier (yes, that’s a word) feel to it. I took full advantage of the many variations of Stampin’ Up! colors for today’s card.
For my card, I started with abackground of Cherry Cobbler layered with Whisper White.
From there, I used different shades of cardstock from yellow to red: Starting with yellow, we have Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, and Hello Honey.
Then we have Pumpkin Pie, Tangelo Twist, and Tangerine Tang0. To finish off on the bottom, I used Cherry Cobbler.
The sentiment, “Happy Day” is from the Sale-a-bration Perfect Pairing in Tangelo Twist.
