Forever Blossoms A Simple Beauty

I'm guilty of making things a little harder than they need to be.  Not with this card.  It's easy, but elegant, I think.

Forever Blossoms by Jo Anne Hewins

I love this card and it's simple enough for me to use in my beginner group.  They will be excited!

Start with a card base of Petal Pink that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold at 4 1/4.

A layer of Soft Seafoam follows and is cut to 3 3/4 x 5.

The next layer is Whisper White measuring 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Stamp the flower stem from Forever Blossoms ( in the January-June Mini Catalog) in Basic Gray.  I stamped the flowers coming in from the top two corners and from the center of the bottom.  Color using the Light and Dark Petal Pink Blends.  I colored the whole flower in the light and then just added a few highlights with the dark.  I didn't even go back and blend it!  Use the Light and Dark Soft Seafoam to color in the leaves and stems.  Run a length of the Petal Pink Organdy Stripe Ribbon across the center of this layer and tape on the back.  I use my Grid Paper to make sure the ribbon is straight.  Add this layer to the card front.

Stamp the word Hello from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Basic Gray.  Center and punch out with the 1" Circle Punch.  Stamp the tiny flower from Forever Blossoms in gray over the word.  I did stamp this off to make it lighter.  Color in the flower using the Light and Dark Petal Pink Blends and the Dark Soft Seafoam.  Punch a 1 1/8 Scallop Circle from Basic Gray card stock.  Layer these and add with dimensionals.

Add a bow of the organdy ribbon with a glue dot.

Forever Blossoms Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying on the inside is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set.  It's stamped in Basic Gray ink.  Add a stem of the flowers from the lower right and color the same as the front.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #595 Peaceful Poppies

Today is the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  We are using Rich Razzleberry, Poppy Parade, and Old Olive.

CCMC595

I will tell you that I had problems with these colors until I noticed they are in the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  I made a very simple, but pretty card.

CCMC#595 Peaceful Poppies Project by Jo Anne Hewins

The paper makes this card a snap!

The base is Rich Razzleberry that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

Add a layer of Old Olive that is 3 3/4 x 5.

The final layer is the Peaceful Poppies paper cut to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.

Are you wondering where I got the Poppy Parade ribbon?  I used the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding and colored it with a Dark Poppy Parade Blend.  It's so easy and you can have any color of ribbon you want!  Add a length across the card and add a bow with a glue dot.

CCMC#595 Peaceful Poppies Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying for this card is from Peaceful Moments.  It is stamped on Whisper White in Rich Razzleberry and is cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Add with dimensionals.

Finish up with a few of the Peaceful Poppies Sequins.

CCMC #595 Peaceful Poppies Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of my card.  The saying is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  The flowers were cut out of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper scraps.
