Good Morning Everyone ~ I have a Simple Accented Blooms from Stampin’ Up creation for you today.
Well I was not in and out as much as I thought I would be yesterday. I managed to make 4 cards! I had a hard time getting started but once I did I was able to create quite a few cards. There are times when I have a hard time getting motivated and I am sure you do too. When that happens to me I pull out one of my kits or use a sketch challenge. With either of these the decisions are basically made for you. That I find the hardest thing to get past when I am not motivated. Having the decisions made for me helps me to create that first project and get over the hurdle.
Today I am sharing a card I made over the weekend. I was playing with one of my stamp sets for my Catalog Journey (I have had to go back and pick up some of the sets I missed). I saw a card online and liked the look and decided to create my version of the card. I began by stamping the image with Basic Gray ink. I then used the So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, and Old Olive markers to color in parts of the flowers. I wanted a ribbon and thought the Polka Dot ribbon would be perfect but I wanted it to match one of the ink colors. I decided to dye it using alcohol and Crushed Curry reinker. I love the look of this ribbon when it is dyed! I added the ribbon and then added this panel to a Crushed Curry card base. I used the other piece of ribbon I had dyed to tie a bow. I took the sentiment from the stamp set and stamped it using Old Olive ink. This was then punched and added to the card base using dimensionals. Here is my completed Simple Accented Blooms from Stampin’ Up.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you. I have some cleaning to do today and I am hoping to work on some more cards. It is going to get hot again so it will be a good thing to be in my craft room! Have a Terrific Tuesday and I hope you enjoyed seeing this idea using the Simple Accented Blooms from Stampin’ Up.
