Delicate Dahlias from Sale-a-Bration

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #678.  We are using Polished Pink, Smoky Slate, and Basic Black.


I just got the stamp set Delicate Dahlias with my order this week and wanted to use it.  Here is my card.

Delicate Dahlias can be earned for free with a $100 purchase during Sale-a-Bration during the months of August and September.  It is a beautiful set.  At first I thought I didn't need another flower set.  I don't know why I try to fool myself that way.  I did NEED it!

The base is Polished Pink measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Basic Black layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  The patterned paper measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  This paper is part of the Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper found on page 37 of the August-December Mini catalog.

I stamped the large flower in Memento Black ink directly on the designer paper with the outline stamp.  Stamp Polished Pink with the more solid stamp.  This is a Distinktive set meaning that it has lots of detail packed into a easy to use stamp!

Stamp the outline of the small flowers (3) on a piece of Basic White and then color it with the more solid stamp in Polished Pink.  You do need to fussy cut these with your snips.

The leaves are in Basic Black.  I add some of the Adhesive Sheets to the back of my black card stock before cutting them out.  I used the Summer Shadows dies, another Sale-a-Bration offering, for the leaves.  With the backing removed they just turn into stickers.

Add the small flowers with dimensionals.

The saying is from the In Your Words stamp set.  Stamp in Memento and then cut out the saying.  Add with dimensionals.  The In Your Words stamp set can be earned for free by making a $300 purchase during Sale-a-Bration!!!

For the inside, add a saying from In Your Words and stamp the dahlia again just as on the outside.

I just going to say that I'm not a big fan of pink and black, but I do think this is a pretty card.  I like these Thursday challenges because it makes me try new things!
