Hello Honey-Retiring In Colors

Soon it will be time to bid farewell to the 2014-2016 In Colors from Stampin' Up!  I have loved this set of colors!  Today's share is the handmade card featured at my March Sip & Stamp event.  Sip & Stamp is my monthly free card-making event.  We make one card and chat, sharing creativity and community.  It's a fabulous event with a mainstay of regulars and a sprinkling of visitors each month. We eagerly enfold visitors into our card-making session, a little creative respite in the middle of the week…in the middle of the month.  Sip & Stamp occurs on the 3rd Thursday of each month.  Click here to rsvp for April and save the date on your calendar!

Okay, on to our sample for today.  My featured colors are Hello Honey (In Colors), Basic Gray, and Sahara Sand.  I love cards (and all decor!) with an all neutrals palette.  Even though Hello Honey is actually a yellow, it sort of acts like a neutral here.  My creation was part of of a challenge whereby we CASE something we find online and change something up a bit, putting our own spin on it.  My card is a CASE from a similar one from the amazingly talented Janet Wakeland. You can find her original card here.  

I stamped my flowers with black ink and then painted them with Gold Wink of Stella.  I love that stuff!  The shimmer does not come out well in my photo, but trust me–it's there.  It makes these flowers look so special!  Wink of Stella dries almost immediately, so it's very user-friendly.  And it does not flake off.  Perfect product!

 Flowering Fields

 

The stamp set is Flowering Fields, one of the Sale-a-Bration choices this year.  That means you cannot purchase it.  BUT, you can get it free with a $50 order!  So don't delay as Sale-a-Bration is over March 31st.  Get yours while you can.  Flowering Fields allows you to plant a garden without getting any dirt on your hands!  LOL

Thanks so very much for stopping by today!
