Are You Fightin' It?

Are you fightin' it?  
The flu?  A nasty cold?  All the illnesses running rampant out there?  
Goodness!  Same here!  
But I know, brighter days are ahead!  Hope you get well soon!

This card features one of the new floral Stamp/Die Duos that were released at the first of January.  It is called Hello Friend.  I colored the beautiful peonies and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped the sentiment onto an Ornate Oval which is glued onto the Lattice Background attached to the piece of designer paper from the Shabby Pastels Paper Pad.  Then I arranged all the pretty peonies around the sentiment.  Finally I added a few pink rhinestones and clear wink of stella to the flowers and leaves.

And here is another center step card:

The card base was cut with the Center Step Card die and then the layers were cut with the Center Step Card Layers dies.  I used Layered Lacey Ovals and Oval Stitched Rows for the center panel.  The gorgeous hydrangea blooms and the sentiment are from the new Stamp/Die Duo called In My Heart.  The blue designer paper is part of the Romantic Roses Collection.  I have also used Beautiful Borders and Bitty Butterflies along with tiny pink rhinestones and pink ribbon. 

Thanks so much for looking!
Have a beautiful day!

  1. Hi! I love this elegant card, it is very beautiful! I have one question though. What did you use to color the hydrangeas green and pink? Did you use chalks, inks, etc? How did you make the color fade from green to pink? They look exactly like the real flower!

    1. Hi Mary! I am so sorry I am just now seeing your comment! I hope you will see my reply here. I looked for a way to contact you directly but had no luck. Thank you for your sweet compliment on my coloring of these gorgeous hydrangeas! I used copic markers to color them. I don't remember the exact numbers but just by looking I believe G20, G24, G28, maybe? I think I used those same colors on the leaves but used the darkest shade the most. And then the pink looks like RV14, RV13, RV10? And then I just blended those colors hoping to appear like they do sometimes in real life! So your compliment has made my day!!! Thank you so much!


Thank you for your comments! I love hearing from you!
