When TGIF posted their color challenge, I thought of a Melon Mambo flower with Lemon Lime Twist leaves, and a Smoky Slate background.

Beautiful Promenade


Here is the link to the TGIF challenge:


First, I stamped the flower from Beautiful Promenade in VersaMark on Whisper White cardstock. This made the outline of the flower, which was hard to see, but I managed to see well enough to use a second stamp for the lines inside the flower.

The leaves were stamped in the same manner,  sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder, and set with the Heat Tool.

I colored the flower and leaves with Sponge Daubers, which I tapped on the Melon Mambo and Lemon lime Twist ink pads, and rubbed across the heat embossed images. Beautiful Layers dies were used for cutting.


To bring in the Smoky Slate color, I used it for the card base, with a background of dotted Smoky Slate from the 6X6 Neutrals Designer Series Paper.


My still life flower needed a frame, so I used two of the Rectangle Stitched dies for cutting it from Thick Whisper White cardstock.


The sentiment, “thanks,” is cut with a die from the Well Written die set, also from Thick Whisper White cardstock. The flower, and the leaves escaping the frame,  are raised on Dimensionals.


I’m having so much fun with the new 2019 Occasions products, and combining them with items from the Annual Catalog makes everything seem new. Keep scrolling to see my Product List below, where everything is now available.
