Happiness Blooms Coral Flowers

by Joanne James27. April 2019 21:00

Today I've been battling a mountain of ironing and watching one of the James Juniors playing back-to-back hockey games in storm-grade winds (a dedicated sportswoman indeed!) so I'm late with today's post but wanted to share a quick card I made for the current challenge over at Inspire.Create where they have a great sketch to work with:

 No photo description available.

My card features stamp, papers, ribbon and a sentiment from the Memories and More kit from the Happiness Blooms Suite  - take a look:


I just love this suite and am so sad it is going to retire as it's one of my favourites from the Spring-Summer catalogue - i love the contemporary design and bright colours and the Bitty Blooms punch pack is super-useful too! 

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 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with my post for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players. Until then, happy stampin'!

I had a hard time warming up to these papers and set, but I think this is the best use of them yet!  I love how you stamped the flower and it looks great with your choice of DSPs!  You know how to put them all together!

LeAnne you are too kind! These papers, in fact this whole suite, was a favourite of mine the first time I saw them and i don't feel I've used them anywhere near enough!

Love to come, our combination on this. I always struggle with using  orange!

I know what you mean Deborah. I don't often use a lot of orange, but often find Calypso Coral is one of those colours that changes depending on what you pair it with so is a little more versatile.
