Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is shades of yellow, and I do love a cheerful, sunny-looking card. Since I don't have a submarine stamp *grin* I went with (what else) flowers! This gave me the perfect opening to use some new preorder items from the 2021-22 Stampin' Up! annual catalog, and that catty is something to look forward to, let me tell ya!
Today's project uses the Color & Contour bundle, consisting of the thirteen piece photopolymer stamp set and 8 piece Scalloped Contours Dies. Oh, my heart, they are so beautiful! There are pierced, stitched, dotted, and embossed scallops which are going to make lovely layers. I used the dotted scalloped border on some Pansy Petals DSP and glued it to the Basic White card base, then stamped the leaf flourish in black.
The flower outlines and the spatters were stamped in Bumblebee and the flower fillers in Mango Melody. The coordinating die cut the blossoms out and they were then adhered over some loops of Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon. All that was left was to stamp the greeting and add some gold Metallic Pearls to the centers of the flowers. I really like this card and think I'll do some more in different colors with different greetings.
