Today I’m getting back in the saddle with the girls over at Stylin Stampin’ Inkspiration and made a card for today’s card sketch. I actually got some time to do a little crafting yesterday and I thought It would be fun to show some of the retiring 2012-2014 In Colors some love. So, with a Primrose Petals card base and some Summer Starfruit cardstock, I ended up with this:
Who knew starbursts could be so pretty! This is the sketch we are all using, so you can see what I started from….
I started out knowing I was going to use my framelits for the two bigger pieces, but when it came to the smallest shape, I really wanted to use the wood chip accent from the Occasion Catalog. I didn’t want it to be plain but I couldn’t figure out what to put on it… then suddenly I realized some punched flowers were the perfect size! (In this case the Petite Petals punch and the Itty Bitty Punch Pack flower that is retiring at the end of the month!)
But got to love those starbursts! And of course, using punches to fill in the centers with some Watercolor Wonder designer paper. (If you are curious, that is the 2-1/2″ circle punch and the 1-3/4″ circle punch)
I hope you enjoyed this idea! It was quick and fun to make. And lets hear it for those hard working 2012-2014 In Colors as they get ready to ride off into the sunset in a few weeks!
