Wanted To Say Feel Better Soon PP642

by Joanne James28. May 2023 08:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous LeAnne to host this week and she has my favourite, a sketch challenge for us to work with:


I decided to take the bright trio of colours over at Just Add Ink and use them to make a cheerful get well soon card - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I initially considered using that vertical panel to showcase some designer paper, but decided instead it would be the perfect place to showcase a new die-only set from page 167 of the new annual catalogue, the Wanted to Say Dies. There are four sentiments in this set and each consists of two layers:

In place of the circle I added a layered flower and leaves, made using another new die-only set - Paper Florist Dies. These are so cool - you can make so many awesome dimensional flowers using these dies - they will be great for packaging and home decor too. These bright and cheery colours are perfect for a feel better soon greeting - I find yellow so uplifting, so it had to be the main colour focus on my card. And not a stamp in sight!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any.

Enjoy your day; I will be enjoying the sunshine and marvelling at the fact that we are having a fine weather Bank Holiday here in the UK - yay! I'll be back soon with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

It's nice to see these dies being used....I kind of skipped over the sentiment dies but now I think they might be pretty useful!  Great color too...bright and cheerful, just what you need for a get-well card!  Sweet!

OMG - You already have the Paper Florist Dies! Jealous! And I'm liking the Wanted to Say set more and more as I see it used. Great use of both die sets. Smile

Joanne, I have to laugh because once again you have helped me discover something in the catalog that I completely overlooked. Those word dies are so much fun, especially with the happy colors you used on your card. Love it!
