So Blue with Floral Phrases Stamp Set

Paper Craft Crew Challenge #240

Handmade monochromatic card featuring the Floral Phrases Stamp Set created by Pam Staples Order today by visiting #pcc2017 #floralphrases #sothoughtfulI’m really looking forward to life getting back to normal!  It has been a crazy few weeks starting with the Craft Retreat to Virginia Beach, VA the weekend of March 24th to 26th!  The weekend was amazing and the weather at the beach was sunny.  I can’t wait to host the next retreat the weekend of October 27th to the 29th.  Fall Registration for ALL crafters will be opening soon for the Craft-N-Relax Retreat in Virginia Beach, VA. For more details and registration information, make certain you are signed up for my newsletter.

Then, two weeks later was OnStage Local!  I attended the Richmond, VA OnStage event and was honored to be a Display Stamper. I’ll be sharing my Display Stamper projects soon.  Let me just say that the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog is AMAZING!  Stampin’ Up! has hit this one out of the ballpark it is so amazing and you definitely NEED one as soon as it is available.  If you would like a Catalog from me, please leave a comment or contact me through my contact link.

Now, for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge #240, I’m sharing a gorgeous Blue Monochromatic Card featuring the Floral Phrases Stamp Set which is part of the Floral Boutique Suite in the current catalog.  The card does feature some retiring products such as the gorgeous Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper and Night of Navy Baker’s Twine. In fact, the Basic Rhinestones have already sold out so you’ll need to wait for the new catalog and the NEW Basic Rhinestones.

  • Card Details

    • The card base is Thick Whisper White layered with a background layer featuring the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper along with the Floral Phrases Stamp Set. I then added a Whisper White top layer with a piece of Night Of Navy Cardstock layered at an angle behind the Whisper White to create contrast. On the top layer of Whisper White there is also another piece of the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper that has a beautiful, floral design.
  • Embellish It! 

    • Adding elements and embellishments to your card helps pull everything together.  I start with the Sentiment from the Floral Phrases stamp set which is stamped with Versamark then heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. The sentiment is then die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits that are also layered with a Night of Navy scalloped oval die cut using the Layering Oval Framelits. NEW Basic Rhinestones add additional sparkle by highlighting the sentiment. I’ve also added both Night of Navy and Whisper White Baker’s Twine behind the sentiment.
  • Flourish Thinlits

    • Using die cut images is an excellent way to add gorgeous detail and elements to a card.  I’ve used the Flourish Thinlits to create delicate details that compliment the whole feel of the card. Owning a Big Shot is a MUST!
  • Pin it!

    • The photo below showcases key products for today’s card.
