Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 518

Hello!  Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we have a sketch for you.


I chose to used the Pressed Flowers stamp set.  It's a Host set located on page 227 of the annual catalog.  I am loving this set.  Here is my card.

CCMC #518 Pressed Flowers by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Granny Apple Green that is cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp over it with the small leaf and flower that are part of the Pressed Flowers stamp set.

The first layer of Designer Series Paper is Poppy Parade.  It comes from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack.  This layer measures 3 x 4 1/2.  The next layer is Granny Apple Green and is from the same Brights pack.  It is cut at 2 x 4.

Run a length of the Black Cord around the card before adding the next layer.

The Whisper White layer is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.  For this layer stamp the flowers from Pressed Flowers.  I inked them with the Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Write Markers.  They are again from the Brights family.  Just color directly on the stamps.  Reink and stamp again.  Once I had all the flowers I went back and stamped the leaf stem.  Stamp off each time and stamp to fill in the spaces.

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the Memento Black sentiment.  It comes from the Healing Hugs stamp set.  I wanted to be able to stamp several times to make sure the words would be visible.

Add this layer with dimensionals.

Tie a bow with the Black Cord and attach with a Glue Dot.

The words on the inside of the card are also from Healing Hugs.  Just add more flowers.

This card should brighten someone's day if they aren't feeling well, don't you think!  I think the Pressed Flowers and the Healing Hugs stamp sets go great together!
