Cheer up Buttercup

I kinda fell in love with the Regarding Dahlias stamp set when I first saw it, and ordered it around early January with some Christmas money from my in-laws. I FINALLY had the chance to ink it up over the weekend and can’t wait to play with it some more!

Cheer Up Buttercup

I took inspiration from the color combo at The Paper Players and the challenge at Catherine and Cathy Create to make a Gold-i-licious card!

I super-duper love the gold vellum sheets in the new Occasions Catalog and thought to myself that I could make something similar with my vellum, stamps and embossing powder. I used the circle from Geometrical, stamped in Versamark onto the vellum sheet and then embossed it with gold powder. I love that it has some variations in it!

So to get the look, I used a Very Vanilla card base, added cardstock strips of Crisp Cantaloupe and Night of Navy, then layered over my custom made vellum. After that was done, I added a doily and strip of navy card stock. I had already cut out the shape and then stamped the flower and sentiment BUT with the magnetic platform you could stamp and then line up the shape so you get the exact placement you want with the Chalk Talk dies! So easy right?! Last, I added a little boutique details embellishment in Crisp Cantaloupe.

So I seriously love how this turned out! It’s not often that I get this excited when I finish a card but the colors, this stamp set, the small details, I just kinda love it. :)
